illogic? 9=240,000,000; the supreme court thinks so.
Yet America, through its judicial system (namely the Supreme Court) is slowly rising to the occasion with such men as Chief Justice Fred Vinson sitting amongst them.
"To those who would paralyze our Government in the face of impending threat by encasing it in a semantic straitjacket we must reply that all concepts are relative."
All concepts are relative? Relative to what? Popular opinion? yes, that could be a valid argument considering America is a majority rules society. But if it is an opinion to what the individual justice's personal convictions? I must oppose.
The left hold to a "living, breathing constitution," which means they can change it according to what they think, feel, or hold as morality (or immorality). Why, or should I say how, did the Supreme Court feel they could steal from our lips the right to interpret the law according to what the feel instead of the consensus of the majority.
A few court cases which prove this point is; the court making it illegal for students to participate in short student led prayer at sporting events? (Santa fe indep. sch. dist. v. doe) (2000). There is Lee v. Weisman clergy may not lead prayers at public school events. stone v graham 10 commandments taken down from public school classrooms. engel v vitale prayer and bible reading were "stripped" from public schools. Abington v. schlep the court said no to Lord’s Prayer at beginning of school day.
"Once again, in order not to offend a contentious minority, the Court decided to trample the rights of the majority."
Here are the statistics opposing every court case listed above
80 percent of Americans favor prayer in school,
85 percent oppose partial birth abortions,
65 percent oppose same sex marriage,
'huge majority' want the phrase "under God" to remain in the Pledge of Allegiance,
94 percent say they believe in (a)God.
Even if you don’t agree with religion of any type being in the school system, you cannot disagree that we as a united America were founded on the democratic theory of majority rules. This majority rule’s principle has since then clearly been replaced by 9 people appointed into office. A few speaking for all is called Dictatorship, why then do we allow these judges to put words into our mouths. hence, 9 speaking for the 240,000,000 of us.
