That’s what could happen on a legal theory articulated by the Obama administration—and the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court were quick to pick up on the fact. The case at hand involves a Lutheran minister, but the principles potentially apply to the issue of women’s ordination in the Catholic Church. Specifically, the case involves […]

The odds that it is being infringed went down this week when, among other things, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision (.pdf)in which it held that the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms applies not only to the federal government but to state and local governments as well. Because this isn’t […]

Below is an hour-long video interview with Justice Antonin Scalia which was aired on the Charlie Rose Show. Charlie Rose comes across at numerous points not as a serious journalist as a hard leftie who thinks he’s a serious journalist and who insists on viewing every issue through an ideological lens–although in fairness to him […]

EXCERPT: I think the state court is looking at the state Constitution upside down. The court finds no constitutional right to homeschool one’s children. But in a free country, people are free to do anything not expressly prohibited by law. If the Constitution is silent about homeschooling, then the right is reserved to the people. […]

Clarence Thomas Update

by Jimmy Akin

in Law

I’ve pointed out before how much I really like Justice Clarence Thomas. I appreciate his willingness to apply originalism in a more thoroughgoing manner even more than Justice Scalia does (Scalia, while still very, very good, shows too much deference to precedence, and as someone once said, "Stare decisis is fo suckas").

Soak The Vatican?

by Jimmy Akin

in Law

Following the sex abuse scandal here in the U.S., there has been an attempt by civil lawyers prosecuting sex abuse cases to try to name the Vatican as a defendant in these cases, which would mean that it could be slapped with millions and millions of dollars in special, general, and punitive damages.

I was really interested to read THIS ARTICLE BY THOMAS SOWELL ABOUT JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS. Sowell is my favorite economist, and Thomas is my favorite justice. I mean, he totally ROCKS!
