    well first off, it might be helpful for you to know britain has a constitution, however its an unwritten constitution

    https://www.bl.uk/magna-carta/articl...n-constitution


    Unwritten law refers to the law based upon custom, usage, and judicial decisions. It is distinguished from the enactments of a legislature, orders or decrees in writing. Although an unwritten law is not enacted in the form of statute or ordinance, it has got legal sanction. An unwritten law need not be expressly evidenced in court decisions, but may be collected, gathered or implied there from under statute.

    In In re Estate of Spoya, 129 Mont. 83 (Mont. 1955), the court held that unwritten law is the law not promulgated and recorded, but which is, nevertheless, observed and administered in the courts of the country. It has no certain repository, but is collected from the reports of the decisions of the courts and treatises of learned men.

    There's no hair-splitting. You said what you said, and it was dumb.
    If you feel a need to "reinterpret" the Constitution, you must know that what you want to do is unconstitutional.

    Not helpful at all. I spent a couple of semesters at Cambridge and even though it was quite some time ago I still recall some things. Indeed they have no piece of parchment or a set of rules that was adopted at one time by some legislative body, yet what they do have is very well defined and documented to not use the term written. It is not just pulled from thin air at the whim of the people or courts.

    It is no different from case law here or SCOTUS decisions which have the power of law as in Roe for example.

    Still to imply that rights come from nature or are undocumented is naive at best.

    If you take it out of context, but if you wanted to honestly participate in the discussion why would you do such a dumb thing?

    Sounds like your church should lose their tax exempt status.

    "Splitting hairs." "Out of context." Any more of the usual excuses you want to throw in? How about "semantics"?

    You said something dumb, full stop.

    Repeating your rant will not add to its validity.

    Oh, I forgot that one: "rant." Defined, of course, as "you saying something inconvenient to me." Another of the lamest of the lame "debate tactics."

    Pointing out that you said something dumb is not a "rant."

    But hey, explain exactly how I took you "out of context." Details.

    Nope. A restaurant is in the business of serving food to people who want to eat and can pay for the food. Not a burden. A basic purpose of the business.
