Ever since I posted Legal thought of the Day, No. 2, regarding Connecticut’s early-nineteenth-century blasphemy and apostasy laws, I’ve become very much interested in the legal history of Atheism in America.

It fascinates me to think that if I had publicly voiced this opinion in colonial America, a group of nations purportedly founded upon the principle of Religious Liberty, I would have lost my civil liberties at best and my life at worst.
