Have all the problems you want. I have problems with the religious trying to force their religious views on a secular society.Originally Posted by CaptainCourtesy
It could have been, it simply wasn't. You confuse an event with a requirement. It's entirely possible that they could have simply decided that blacks couldn't be slaves or women could vote, both happened to end up as amendments because they were pushed as such. Certainly we didn't need an amendment when the military was desegregated or women got other rights equal to men, it simply wasn't necessary.No, you miss the boat on this. Your interpretation is too broad, as one MAN, one WOMAN is quite specific. This is why the law could not be modified to allow women to vote. An amendment had to be created. This is why the law couldn't be modified to abolish the slavery of black people. An amendment needed to be created. This is precisely why, from a discrimination standpoint, new law would need to be created...not modifying old law. From a benefits standpoint, modification is far easier.
No, but apparently you can't.And to allow it you would have to create new law, not modify old law. Are you telling me that YOU can't tell the difference.
Yeah, you keep on telling yourself that. Might actually get someone to believe it.And yet my argument has easily dumped yours in the garbage, showing that is yours that is asinine.
