You’ll notice I haven’t mentioned her recently. She has come to her senses and recanted her former foolishness.

The Constitution of the United States recognizes that the states have the power to set voting requirements. By 1776, at least 60 percent of adult white males were able to vote, and by 1787 significantly more. A few states allowed free Black men to vote, and New Jersey also included unmarried and widowed women who owned property. In 1821, the state of New York held a constitutional convention which removed property requirements for white male voters but required that “persons of colour” own $250 worth of property, “over and above all debts,” in order to vote. In 1838, voting rights are taken away from free black men in Pennsylvania.
Suffrage for black men was NOT common. Even after the 14th and 15th amendments many parts of the South clung to the Grandfather Clause.
The BIG problem is that when in vitro is performed only one of the many zygotes inserted actually takes hold and survives. All of the others fail and are sloughed off. To Alabama, all of those failed in vitros constitute murder. This means that families who hoped to have a child, cannot even try, lest they be accused of murder.
Using the Bible in a country that has A) Many different faiths, and B) does NOT have an established religion is Just. Plain. Wrong.
Fine! Go preach to them, because WE certainly don’t love it. We don’t like it, and we aren’t willing to tolerate it. Go post on Ted Payne, or Al Goodwyn if you want “love”.
My body seems more like Pop, Snakle, and oh, crap".
Well, let’s put it this way – I’ll be less upset to discover I am mistaken than you will.
Clarence Thomas is another very confused “originalist”. If he wants to stick to the original Constitution, he needs to divorce his white wife, stop voting, and for goodness’ sake, get off the bench! None of those things were legal when the Constitution was written.
