The Devil Can Cite Scripture for His Purpose.  

Constitution Restoration Act of 2004

I commented on this bill once before, but I recently had an interesting thought and decided to comment on it again. Once more, here is the text of the bill's purpose:

`Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the Supreme Court shall not have jurisdiction to review, by appeal, writ of certiorari, or otherwise, any matter to the extent that relief is sought against an element of Federal, State, or local government, or against an officer of Federal, State, or local government (whether or not acting in official personal capacity), by reason of that element's or officer's acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government.'.

Okay, here is my thought. As Shakespeare noted in the Merchant of Venice, biblical passages can be used to argue almost any objective. The Book is more full of conflicting themes than a kilt factory. (Think about it - you'll get it.)

So here is the thing, suppose a liberal judge in - say - Massachusetts was to have made a favorable same-sex marriage ruling with a reference to First Samuel, Chapter 18: verse one:

And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

Think about it - you'll get it.
