Although the word "apparent" softens the statement considerably, I
wonder what David Barton meant with the apparent correlation between the
US Supreme Court decision and "the gross national product." If he meant
that the Supreme Court decision had an adverse effect on the US GNP,
what did the US Supreme Court do in the '30's to bring on the great
depression? If the US Supreme Court reversed its decision and
promulgated Bible reading and prayer, would the GNP rise?
