American politics are embittered by the growing fracture between two rival constitutions, two opposed cultures, two contrary ways of life. American conservatives rally around the founders’ Constitution, as amended and as grounded in the rights and duties of the Declaration of Independence. American liberals herald the “Living Constitution” and hold that the fundamental political imperative is constant change or transformation. This talk will explore the thought of the founders and their progressive critics, with an eye towards determining how we got here, where we go from here, and what is ultimately at stake in our increasingly divided country.

Despite tremendous leaps in our access to information, civic literacy in America is at an all-time low. Seventy-​one percent of Americans can’t identify the Constitution as the supreme law of the land, sixty-three percent can’t name one of their state’s U.S. senators, and sixty-two percent can’t identify the governor of their state. What are the consequences for our nation? How can we move forward to create a civically informed public? How can we rise to the responsibility of our democracy?

Situating the roots of America’s approach to the question of Church-State relations and religious freedom in the Christian ideals of freedom of the church and freedom of conscience, Steven D. Smith maintains that America’s distinctive contribution to religious freedom is not found in the First Amendment, but in a commitment to open contestation between competing secularist and providentialist understandings of the nation which evolved over the nineteenth century. In the twentieth century, the Supreme Court repudiated this commitment to open contestation, thereby rejecting America’s traditional approach. The consequences of this repudiation are visible today in the incoherence of religion clause jurisprudence and the vicious culture wars in American politics.
