Abstract: This purpose of this paper is to look at the effectiveness of the Supreme Court in delivering consistent results. Specifically, this paper examines six Supreme Court cases that deal with religious displays in the public sphere and their constitutionality. The Establishment Clause is mentioned in every case, all of which were decided within the past fifty years. An in-depth content analysis of these cases demonstrates that the Supreme Court is hesitant in certain areas of jurisdiction, such as in establishing a definitive and clear relationship between church and state.
