Commenting is not available in this channel entry.

I am wondering which Constitution to which Mr. Burkholder refers.  The one I remember says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…”

Must be a different one, eh?

Maybe Mr. D’andrea does not understand English. What part of “does not ESTABLISH” does he not understand. A cross on hill, a nativity scene, or the Ten Commandments on display does not ESTABLISH anything. I would remind him that it says “freedom OF religion” not “freedom FROM religion”.

Perhaps it’s Mr. Patton who needs to understand English a little better.  The First Amendment does not say “does not ESTABLISH.”  It says “respecing an establishment of religion.”  I understand that very well.

Touche Robert. Wouldn’t it be a grand day should the sorry worthless judges, who violate their oath and legislate from the bench, were banished?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof: or abridging the freedom of speech , or of the press: or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” D’andrea conveniently selected a portion to support his comment. Typical liberal tactic.

Typical liberal tactic?  You mean paying attention to the Constitution?

Guilty as charged, although I don’t know too many people who consider me “liberal.”

I listed the Establishment Clause because that was the basis for the lawsuit and the basis for the Ninth Circuit’s decision.  See:

Indeed you are guilty. I, personally, could care less about the ninth circuit. Probably another hussein appointee. Exactly WHAT do you see as Mr. Burkholder’s error? I hope it is not jaw flappin for the sake of jaw flappin.
