What does it mean to be American? It means you get to be anything you want to be. – “Papa Sam”
A recent spate of conservative rulings from the Supreme Court found me holding contempt for their allowance of public speech of a different sort. It seems it is fine to start every town hall meeting with claims about how Jesus Christ came back from the dead or how he is the ultimate judge. Do some research of your own and you’ll agree, some of the quotes about what we are all supposed to believe surfacing in the non-sectarian public space are downright scary. The ruling in question here, The Town of Greece v Galloway (http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/town-of-greece-v-galloway/) was indeed close, a 5-4 vote, with the usual right wing and left in their respective corners.
