Our liberties have always been protected by men willing to fight for them. The fight happens both with the force of arms and in the power of great ideas (e.g.: "all men are created equal"). Pen, protestor, and sword defend liberty.
Yet, those liberties can stand or fall with the opinion of 9 people on the Supreme Court. It isn't the constitution that guarantees or freedom as much as it is the men who interpret and enforce it.
Hooray for the Supreme Court that unanimously (9-0) protected the liberty of Christian churches (and of all religions). Click on the heading above and read the post on Cranach blog about the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod before the Supreme Court.
