Puh-leeeze. How does Stevens' principled support of a strong form of
separation equal "hostility"?
I guess such a statement comes from the "if you are not for me, you are
against me" school of logic.
Normally the law is a bit more nuanced than that with many competing ideas and
principles. Even in Justice Stevens' position.
