Another Wrong Premise

I just wrote about a wrong premise fueling the anti-gun fools' actions, and now here is another. Ayn Rand, the Objectivist philosopher, said, “If you see a contradiction, check your premises,” The contradiction in the linked story is that Americans don't have the right to express their religious beliefs in a public place, because of the Constitution. That involves a MISREADING of the clause in the Constitution. The the Constitution merely states, in the “Establishment Clause, “ “The Congress shall make NO LAW regarding the ESTABLISHMENT of religion, or prohibiting the free expression thereof.” The City Council of this small town in Iowa did both in banning this cross from a cemetery and were defeated in the next election because of it. You don't want to mess with Iowans. This situation highlights the way politicians MISREAD the Constitution in many ways, making unconstitutional laws—until they're “called to account.” Unfortunately, by then, the damage has already been done.
