Should be an interesting test of the Bush Supremes.

There's nothing like the First Amendment to separate the lambs from the Orcs. (I'd have said Trolls, meaning large club wielding mythical figures, but it might have been misunderstood, is this a question of politically correct speech from the other side?)

Not all support "faith based"

In reply to: SCOTUS to decide if : " bong hits 4 jesus"

Many religious people also don't like the faith based initiative, but we
are also tired of seeing government money fund what is clearly at times
anti-religious organizations. Maybe some feel it's fair play and deprives
the irreligious and anti religious organizations from some funding, but
the danger is government intrusion in a manner that would give them
too much input and influence on relgious groups.

A lot of the controversy is who gets the grants

In reply to: Not all support "faith based"

The Bush supporters get the grants whether they need them or not and programs with proven track records don't.

good points for sure

In reply to: Not all support "faith based"

in particular: "the danger is government intrusion in a manner that would give them too much input and influence on relgious groups."

others see the dangers apparent if we switch placement of the words 'government' and 'religious groups' in your statement.

there is the dilemma

Neither does it say...

In reply to: SCOTUS to decide if : " bong hits 4 jesus"

....in the Constitution that taxpayers cannot fund such an initiative either. Happy

Seriously, these issues regarding Constitutional Law will be settled just where they should be, by the Supreme Court.

I don't know enough about the ends and outs, and apparently even lower courts differ on some decisions.

But the buck stops in the Supreme Court. We may or may not like decisions they hand down, but we should respect them. On down the line other suits could be brought before them that would reverse earlier ones. Times do change, and different issues are born, and new challenges made.

I agree but

In reply to: Neither does it say...

constitutional constructionists interpret taxes may be levied only if enumerated in the document.

that is why funding for ss, medicare, welfare, pbs & the arts , etc are challenged by them.

I do not agree 100% and would say the above promote the general welfare, also mentioned in the constitution.

I toss out the 'faith based initiative' as a lure to those who do not find fault when they like where the money goes.(who does not)

I found both issues to be interesting. I also think it would be fun to see the supreme jurists keep a straight face when the words "bong 4 jesus" are presented throughout that case. (wish there were cameras)

Hope SCOTUS rules in favor of the school district...

In reply to: SCOTUS to decide if : " bong hits 4 jesus"

the studnets were just barely off school property at a school-supervised event. Promoting illegal drug use is not a form of protected speech in school (nor should it be anywhere).
