Semi-protected edit request on 15 September 2017[edit]

Section 5.2.2 - In the case of Cohen v. California, the judge was John Marshall Harlan II (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Marshall_Harlan_II) not John Marshall Harlan - his grandfather.

Serious error in text[edit]

The text that has been altered is ", prohibiting the free exercise of religion,"! The correct text reads ",or prohibiting the free exercise of religion,"! A single word removed makes ALL the difference in the meaning. I'm sure this was a typo, and not a deliberate omission, as that would point to some very ugly activism taking place. Something I'm sure no one wants to see on this site. I will check back in 7 days to ensure the grievous error has been repaired. If not, the next step is to alert the media. This of course is not the preferred outcome. 204.112.246.112 (talk) 11:54, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

The Text section says "or prohibiting the free exercise thereof". That is what is in the First Amendment. There is no need for your threat. Nobody is trying to be deceptive. Please further explain the "error" you claim is present. SMP0328. (talk) 16:18, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
