Regular readers will know that I consider Notre Dame law professor Rick Garnett to be one of the most thoughtful conservative scholars in America. And, I can think of few scholars of any ideological stripe who take their Catholicism more seriously, and more intelligently. If there is, as Lionel Trilling once said, a moral obligation to be intelligent, Garnett's is a profoundly moral voice. He had a very important and interesting article about Elena Kagan and her views on religious freedom at USAToday Monday that is well worth reading. I apologize for the delay in linking to it, but it has lost none of its cogency or interest.
