Unlike Solomon, Supreme Court divides the living baby

The First Amendment, the first of the ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution known collectively as the Bill of Rights, is short:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

On Monday, the Supreme Court cut the living – if nearly comatose – First Amendment in half.  In Christian Legal Society v. Martinez the court announced its decision that you can have freedom of assembly or free exercise of religion, but not both.  Briefly stated, the Supreme Court ruled that the Christian Legal Society at Hastings College of Law in San Francisco cannot bar from leadership any student – Muslim, atheist, Wiccan – on the campus.  If the Christian students at Hastings want to peaceably assemble, they must give up the free exercise of their religion.

The fascism of the left has grown suddenly more powerful. 

You can read the legal society’s summary of the case here.  Some useful commentaries can be found at Human Events, Beliefnet, and First Things/On the Square.
