Some attendees at last week’s Federalist Society conference were wondering if Giuliani shouldn’t be studying up on his Constitution or maybe was being overly Freudian in his slips, given the beating he’s been taking from social conservatives.
On a few occasions during his speech last Friday, Giuliani made reference to the “Ten Amendments” when referencing the “Ten Commandments.”
“And I can’t figure out where in the Constitution, in the First Amendment or anywhere else in the Constitution, either the clause against establishment of religion or protecting the free exercise of religion, I cannot figure out where some imperative exists to take the words ‘under God’ out of the Pledge of Allegiance or to ban the mention of the Ten Amendments in a public square.” He later corrected himself.
Then later: “That’s what liberty is all about. Our liberty is secured even before it was secured by the Ten Amendments to the Constitution, it was secured by the structure of our government. It’s probably our most reliable assurance.” No word yet from the ACLU.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
