Constitutional Law II
In Weisman, O'Connor set out a two prong test to determine whether or not an act is a government endorsement of religion:
- Is the city's actual purpose to endorse or disapprove religion?
- The subjective intent of the speaker
- Does the practice in fact convey a message of endorsement or disapproval of religion?
- The objective meaning
The endorsement test is kind of similar to the Lemon test.
