The Death of the Republic - continued

The New York Times makes it appear that the Supreme Court Justices are sympathetic to the argument that the citizen can challenge in court only Congressional statutes that seek to establish religion, but cannot challenge actions of the Executive.

To quote the Solicitor General

"taxpayers should not have standing to challenge “an internal government church.”"

And SCOTUS is sympathetic to this.
