Comments of Professor David Bernstein were featured in a Boston Globe op-ed piece that examined the controversy surrounding President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

Bush's Faith-Based Nominee, Boston Globe, October 19, 2005. By Cathy Young.

Excerpt:
"In recent years, conservatives have often accused Democrats of improperly making religion an issue in debating judicial nominations and have argued that questioning a nominee's faith-based views on policy issues such as abortion is not only "religious bigotry," but a violation of the constitutional ban on religious tests for public office. Yet now, as George Mason University law professor David Bernstein puts it on the Volokh Conspiracy website, 'The president sends his minions to drum up support based on her personal religious philosophy.'"
