    becauase the Establishment Clause is the only part of the Constitution that is relevant in this case.

    question: is the reason this is a bad idea because it is unconstitutional or is it just a bad idea?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    What I'm seeing is that there are some posters who appear to believe that the government is trying to establish a religion, though the name oof that new religion has yet to be mentioned..

    Have they stopped teaching about US Constitution in American schools? What's going on?

    Having a politician say "bless you" when somebody sneezed at a Press Conference would probably set off a 30 page thread on seperation of Church and State around here.

    Well couldn't he just say: "Should the higher power (or powers) of your choosing, should you choose to believe in one (or some), bless you?"

    Worthless posts can be made better by reading the thread and knowing what we are talking about. It's not like this was all secret, there's a few pages of arguments written and waiting for you to read and catch yourself up.

    And even less than that for people to post responses which have nothing to do with the thread and just engage in speculation and hyperbole.

    What difference does it make? Since when are convicts guaranteed Constitutional rights? It's a bad idea because it's too lenient, but I don't view this as a Constitutional issue.
