3/10/2017—I have not been keeping up with blogging because of travel. From family, I left immediately for the Nootbaar Conference at Pepperdine Law School on the subject of the religious critique of law. My topic was the religious critique of constitutional jurisprudence. And the subject was one that the participants were really interested in—the nihilism and relativism infecting law and American public life. Lots of people are now worrying about this for America. People here can be pretty conservative, but they are as worried about truth in the public square as are people on the other side.
