An answer for Alabama

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Sep 02, 2003

Phyllis Schlafly offers a simple, logical solution to the Ten Commandments controversy in Alabama.

You can't say that her proposal is unconstitutional; it's based explicitly on a clear provision of the Constitution. You can't say it's anti-democratic; it wouldn't work unless a majority of the people (through their elected representatives) approved it.

There's only one reason why this solution isn't employed: a lack of political will. If "we the people" want to do it, it will be done. It's that simple.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    When we object to vile behavior or actions on TV, we are informed to "change channels" as they have the FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHT. So, with that in mind, why can't the NON-BELIEVERS just simply turn their heads and look at another wall, or hallway. The MINORITY have set the agenda of our country and it is time to take it back! Our silence is a SIN OF OBMISSION. BE VOCALE!
