A group blog to promote discussion, debate and insight into the history, particularly religious, of America's founding. Any observations, questions, or comments relating to the blog's theme are welcomed.
Here's the 9/7/12 Wall Street Journal Randy Barnett Book Review to which the Akil Amar guest blog is referring.
Isn't Amar's interpretation a way around the "rule of law"? Authority will still decide and/or determine what aspects of law will be defended. And "the people" (motivated by propaganda?) could sway the judiary as to the "unwritten constitution"! Isn't this a way to accomodate "God" in the cultural melieu of radical religionists? Then, where will America be? Our Constitutional government is a limited government, which is direct conflict with an expanded view of government via "God" (whether that is defined by Caesars/czars/kings or God ordained authorities)!
