ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the motion to amend the U.S. Constitution. He argues that the Constitution says that Congress shall pass no law establishing a religion or forbidding the free exercise thereof. He points out that it was not until 1925 that the Supreme Court decided that the first amendment to the Constitution plus the 14 amendment gives to the Court the right to impose its current understanding of the meaning of the Bill of Rights.
