You mean, like it has been since Rehnquist was appointed?Originally posted by Shapley:
RE: The Supreme Court,
When John Kerry said that he would select judges that would interpret the Constitution in accordance with the laws, I shuddered.
I would expect it to be the other way around.
I contemplated how best to answer this and here is what I choose instead:RC,
"When you read it, you get the distinct impression that they wanted the president to interdict very little personal judgement."
Interesting idea, can you expand on it?
I did NOT say he could. President Bush alone did not get into the White House - he had to convince YOU to vote for him. Just like he is attempting to convince YOU that the constitution should be altered.I'm sorry, but President Bush, alone or with the consent of Congress, cannot alter the Constitution of the United States.
Where DOES that term come from Shap? It is NOT written in the constitution - so, was this coined from some liberal rant?The term "seperation of church and state" does not appear in the Constitution, much to the dismay of those who wish it. The freedom to freely exercise religion, however, is supported by the Constitution.
The test that applies to the president of the United States, is that which ensures the individual freedoms granted by the constitution. Can Bush govern the country without imposing HIS religious bias?The Constitution says no religious test shall be administered, yet that appears to be what you are doing.
I do not fear Christians, fundamentalist or otherwise, I fear THEE fundamentalist who weilds the power to impose his values on you and I and has stated quite openly that he is not concerned in doing so.As an aside, people who fear Christians, fundamental or otherwise, more than radical Islam perplexes me .

It is in fact my specific reverence for religious freedom which motivates my distrust of Bush.
How you figured I was anti anything but Bush as president, I do not know.As an individual, more power to Bush and all other citizens in the free practice of your faith.
