Supreme Court Fails to Understand Constitution

By Daniel Bearden

The Supreme court ruled on Monday that the Ten Commandments may be displayed outside on government property but not inside the courthouse. The liberal Supreme Court has once again relied upon the the false doctrine of the Separation between Church and State. The First Amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting 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.”

The first clause states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” Note that it places no restrictions on the states, only Congress. Amendment Ten states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

Therefore according to the First and Tenth Amendments, the right to make laws respecting and establishing religion is given to the states, making both of the Ten Commandments displays legal. The Supreme Court clearly does not understand the United States Constitution.

The Supreme Court based their decision on how much emphasis the Ten Commandments displays place on religion. According to the Constitution, only if Congress placed the displays, can the displays be evaluated on these terms.

    It was a narrow 5-4 decision. Some liberal court.

    I would never accuse our current Supreme Court of being liberal.

    Therefore according to the first and tenth amendments, the right to make laws respecting and establishing religion is given to the states, making both of the Ten Commandments displays legal.

    Given your logic, a state can vote in a religion that beheads and/or severs limbs for crimes.

    Actually, what the Supreme Court gets, that apparently you and Roy Moore do not, is that the Constitution gives you the right to do what you want, until it infringes on the right of another. It’s that last little clause that keeps you up at night, I can tell.

    Like I said before…why worry about a rock in front of a building…it’s the rock with the gavel in his hand that’s gonna make the difference…they don’t even use the front door…so they never see the rock!

    And why do the ten commandments scare people so much anyway? Come one…is the coveting my goods that bothers you? I mean it must be that whole redistribution of wealth thing that has you up in arms…or is it the honor thy father and mother???

    I think it’s the adultery.

    It isn’t the granite, or even the words that scares people, andy. Is that a rhetorical question, or do you truly not know the reason why some people literally fear religion in the courthouse?
