Lee Ellis is a retired journalist and a former vice president of both CBS and Gannet. He is also seriously ignorant about what's in our country's Constitution.
[link] A few days ago, the majority of the Supreme Court ruled as if it were using the Constitution of France instead of the Constitution of the USA. The French Constitution states that its nation is a secular one, while our Constitution states that we are a nation under God. One would not know this if the majority of the Supreme Court today is to be believed.
No, sorry, Lee old bean, but our Constitution states no such thing. In fact, the only religious reference in our entire Constitution is a prohibition on religious tests for public office. Surprise, surprise, our Constitution is a secular one as well.
Monte Kuligowski is an attorney who writes on topics of social, religious, political and legal interest. He also is misinformed about our Constitution.
[link] What about the free speech of displaying the Commandments? What about every village's, county's, city's and state's right of freedom of speech to display its values without the federal courts intervening and saying, "No you can’t."
Monte, where in the world did you get the silly idea that villages, cities, states, and counties have the "right" of "freedom of speech"? The right to freedom of speech is present in individual human beings, not in towns or cities. The reason for this is because giving towns and cities and states civil liberties leads directly to majority rule and the tyranny of the majority - which is exactly what our Constitution's Bill of Rights was designed to avoid.
Damn. You can dress them up and send them to school, call them "vice presidents" and "attorneys", and they're still idiots when it comes to their own country.
Amazing, but not surprising, I guess. Human beings are human beings, after all. If we have learned anything at all from our species' history, it is the fact that people will try to legislate their own petty beliefs and desires into laws governing their fellow people "for their own good".
