Today I realized, again, how much I’m missing having students in a classroom setting. My ‘Religion in the United States’ students were given case studies: (1) Should the Scientologists be taxed? (2) Is The Satanic Temple’s First Amendment claims legit? (3) Could the IRS have prevented the Jonestown massacre? (4) Could the ATF have done a better job handling the Branch Davidians? Many of their answers differed to the point that I could tell if we had been together we would’ve had an amazing discussion.
Next year, I guess (hopefully).
