Quick Overview

Dateline Sunday, U.S.A. is humorous, bizarre, tragic, but always fascinating--of man's tolerance of his fellowmen, as for centuries he has harnessed the power of the state to enforce a religious observance. Here, surely, is one of the paradoxes of American history: A nation "conceived in liberty," protected by an amendment guaranteeing separation of church and state, has never quite managed to unshackle itself from blue laws received as a legacy from colonial clergy and magistrates.
