This article discusses the political and social implications of current attempts to amend the Constitution to ensure "religious equality." Two specific proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution will be analyzed--the Istook Amendment and the Hyde-Hatch Amendment. This article concludes that although the Hyde-Hatch Amendment is the more acceptable of the two, neither amendment achieves the elusive goal of ensuring religious equality.
