Open to all discussion. My judicial view on the legislation is that each clause is integral to the paragraph and that establishment of religion cases have to be rectified with all the other clauses, those being freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, and plaintiff's rights. Any church, any issue.

Welcome to the forum Flannery and may your day be as bright as a bald man's head.

Are you referring to a recent political question or incident? I'm not sure what you are referencing here. Maybe it would help to post a link to the matter in question.

I agree that no clause in the First Amendment (or anywhere else in the Constitution) should be considered in isolation to the whole. When we take a single concept out of it's context we run the risk of error and misapplication. The issue of abortion on demand is the perfect example of what happens when we view the Constitution through blinders. Our ground is soaked in blood.

Of course, we who study the Bible would not make that mistake.

There's a great book on the first amendment to the US constitution called "Original Intent", by David Barton. I recommend it.

No, I don't have a specific case that I'm following in the news. I just wondered if anyone else was interested. Constitutional law is ofetn read very religiously (I know there are lawyer jokes all over the place, but many jurists are stil faithful in their readings. It was nice to hear from you, I'm only seeking conversation.

I think I've heard of that one. I didn't know that it was the title of a book or who had written it. I'll take that out of the library.

It is. Stem cell research and biochemistry on the whole are not too good for us, I've seen the pictures of the alleged rendering plants in Ireland and Peru that Al Gore's followers claim to believe is causing global warming. Maybe they are, if the charges are true, after all the human body contains a lot of carbon, and if masses of them were burned, as in masses on Hitler Holocaust levels, carbon dioxide would result in the atmosphere.
