Supreme Court and First Amendment

Constitution Daily has an article regarding the First Amendment and a case that was heard last week by the Supreme Court of the United States.

I was going to comment on this on their website, but, they require that you have a Facebook account, I will never have a Facebook account since the Federal Government has free rein to read the content and to garner your personal information from that place. So I will write here what I see as the truth about this and other decisions that the “High court” has made and hope that this time they will do the right thing.

It seems to me that we have gone far afield from the actual First Amendment. Even Jefferson, upon whom the Court has relied so heavily did not say that there was to be no prayer. His letter to the Baptists was simply to say that the government could not interfere in their practices. The First Amendment clearly says, that the Congress of the United States shall make no law restricting our religious practices. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” it does not mention any wall of separation and historically there was no restrictions on what could or could not be said from the pulpit. In the years when Jefferson was President, he authorized the use of the Capitol building for religious services every Sunday. The Courts have decided that we are not allowed to worship as we wish, and the IRS has further restricted our ability to speak from the pulpit.

It is my fervent prayer that this will be reversed. That we will be returned to our original freedom of worship. The federal government for too long has been allowed to meddle in the affairs of the people, they have grown into a leviathan that threatens to destroy every freedom we have enjoyed. We are already restricted by this government, they have even gone so far as to refer to Veterans and members of the opposition as terrorists. It is high time that the courts went back to their proper role as judges not as legislators. Stop making law from the bench, and go back to strict interpretation of the law of the land (The Constitution). Give back our right to assemble, to speak our minds and to worship freely as was the intent of the framers of our Constitution.

It is time that we the people reasserted our rightful place in the scheme of things, we are the proper place for the power of this nation, not our Political Royalty (Professional Politicians). We need to reassert ourselves, let us call for a Constitution Amending by the States as it allows in the Constitution. Not a new Constitution, but amending the one we have to make clear that we the people are the ones who actually hold the power.
