    Nope, I just wanted you to say it. So IOW it's NOT in the Constitution.

    So you agree then?

    Which part of the constitution says that? :|

    None, that's the point. Something can't violate the Constitution if it isn't mentioned in the Constitution.

    Really? What part of the constitution says that? If something isn't the mentioned in the constitution, it is not a violation of constitutional rights? That sounds pretty weak. Illegal wiretaps violate constitutional rights. Nothing about wiretaps in the constitution.

    What is a "real Christian?"

    Sorry, but I am not at fault for their ignorance?

    According to the Koran, Bible and Torah they are.

    I am also kind of wondering who these "real Christians" are? And how do you pick them out of a crowed and speak for them?

    Wiretaps are covered under the right to privacy or be secure in our homes etc. That is what makes it unconstitutional, not the fact it is not mentioned.
