It is entirely appropriate IMHO for people who disapprove of of the Court’s decisions to attack it in political terms and to threaten political reprisals, as the Gun-Control Senators are doing here.

Those of us who disagree with the anti-2A agenda need to publicize the attack so that other people know what’s going on, and ensure (at the ballot box) that these Senators will never get the chance to make good on their threat.

I don't agree at all. These senators display a fundamental lack of knowledge of the constitution and the role of the court. If the court followed polls (assuming the unlikely proposition that progressive Democrats are the majority as they are claiming) then it would never have repealed Plessy v. Ferguson.


They know the Constitution, they just choose to pee on it. Dangerous times now and ahead.

Amen! Any similarities are gladly accepted since it would be compared against the ideal.

Quote:Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to "heal" the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

So---the group that is constantly bemoaning a "constitutional crisis" is looking to create a "constitutional crisis" by trying to threaten the existence of another branch of government? Whats next, will Nancy march her "brown shirt" nazi Antifa army to burn and pillage the Supreme Court chambers? These folks are completely out of control.

Freely admitting that I dont know the contextual differences between these two passages but this made me think of:

Romans 13:1 "Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God and those which exist are established by God." - said by Jesus

Ephesians 6:12 - written by Paul

How to square those against each other? Eric?

I don't want to speak for Eric, but my personal interpretation is this...

Romans 13:1; Jesus is speaking to abiding by man's laws as well as God's laws and also understanding which one has immediate impact over our mortal selves and which one has greater impact in terms of eternity.

Ephesians 6:12; Paul is speaking about our spiritual guidance and not in terms of physical laws really, IMO. He's speaking of the spiritual realm and how it affects our interpretation of right and wrong as Christians.

Correct. The former is for getting along in the secular world without abandoning God's law as was befitting the regime and the times. The latter is for your own individual spiritual parameters. It helps you navigate your own conscience and reconcile it with God's teachings.

In the former you are citizen of the secular world and subject to the laws of man. In the latter you are subject to the commands of God who is the Father of us all where there is is no Gentile or Jew, male or female, slave or free to paraphrase another passage.

All people of faith have to reconcile the two realms of existence, the existential and the spiritual, and do so in a way that is compliant with the secular, and obedient to the spiritual. It doesn't mean all of man's law can be reconciled to God's. It can't. And where it can't is the cost of your faith.

The supreme law of the land is the Constitution which sets forth 3 co equal branches of gpvernment. This is just more proof that the Democrat party has gone off the rails. To be fair though, the party can do no more than reflect the views of its majority supporters. Walk Away.

Make no mistake, dems will go full nuclear if they ever control all three branches again. I think Mitch needs to make that move after Trump wins in 2020.
