Agreement reached on future of Jesus portrait in Jackson schools

Jul 12, 2013 Full story: The Columbus Dispatch 134

The controversy over a portrait of Jesus that hung for decades in a southern Ohio high school apparently didn't end in April when the district took the portrait down.

Your questions are asinine. As I already said, it is the highest court in the land.

"My understanding of he Law is a Constitutional one not an accepted practice."

So is mine. Now go read Marbury v. Madison until you get it.

I figured you wouldn't get my 1803 reference.

If the federal National Endowment for the Arts can use taxpayer monies to pay for crap like "Piss Christ", then it can certainly tolerate a Jesus portrait in a public school.

Jesus is, after all, an historic figure.

Just because they can't display a Mohammed portrait without fear of being bombed or beheaded, doesn't mean they can't display a portrait of Jesus.

Context matters.

Read the cases. You misunderstand the law.

I don't misunderstand anything, genius.

The US constitution says the people reserve all undelegated law-making power.

The fact that the people own all undelegated law-making power is enumerated in the 9th and 10th amendments.

The "people" mentioned in the constitution are local governments.

Fedgov stole the control of public schools from the people, because genius like you don't comprehend plain english.

Like I said, READ THE CASES. Case law is law, and your understanding of the 9th and 10th amendment in this instance is nearly 150 years out of date. The First Amendment applies to public schools per the 14th Amendment and the selective incorporation cases that followed.

Let me know when/if you get admitted to law school, where they will hopefully straighten out your misunderstandings.

The US legal profession is full of shysters, genius.

The 14th amendment extends the BoR restrictions of the fedgov onto the states, not onto the people. there is no mention of restrictions on the people in the 14th, and the 9th and 10th amnedments are still in force.

Your deliberate misinterpretation of the 14th is corrupt, and the same as most ABA scum.

Your interpretation of the 14th is totalitarian, giving the fedgov unlimited law-making power, which is exactly how fedgov behaves today.

Case law is very political, because judges are political appointees and are approved by your buddies in the scummy ABA lawyers union.

Your logic fallacy is an appeal to authority.

Here's what the 14th really says, genius:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

No mention of restrictions on the people in the 14th, genius. The 14th explicitly says the restrictions are on the state govs, not the people. The 9th and 10th amendment are still in force.

You are a typical ABA-style nut, grubbing for power and money over the people.

Before lying liars like you got the upper hand in the federal court system, all public schools were locally controlled.

Another wanna-be lawyer that does not understand that reading the text of the law is only the beginning of legal research, not the end.

The cases speak for themselves - this is not my personal opinion, it is the law.

And ignorance of the law is no excuse.

More of the same appeal-to-authority BS logic fallacy.

The US constitution is the true law of the land, not case law.

You are typical ABA-style lying corruption.

Corrupt people like you are the last to take responsibility for the ongoing totalitarian government in Washington DC, which ABA-style liars like you made happen.

Your diversity scheming and collusion with queers is becoming more reognizable by ordinary people.

Jesus isn't a historical figure. There is no solid evidence to back up his existence. There's no remains, no eyewitness accounts, no record of his existence until decades after his supposed death, no tomb, and no known descendants. Jesus is more likely multiple people portrayed as a single man.

Wrong again, genius.

The real authority is the US constitution, not case law.

The US constitution says explicitly the people own all undelegated law-making power.

The 9th and 10th amendments have never been repealed, but they are consistently ignored by corrupt ABA-style liars.

Your ABA-style suck-up routine to politically appointed robed experts in Washington DC is corrupt.

ABA scum have deliberately misinterpreted the meaning of the word "people" to "individuals", which is not only illogical but also corrupt.

You are a typical ABA-style liar seeking power over the people..

If Jesus didn't exist, then why did the fedgov give tax monies thru the National Endowment for the Arts to Andres Serrano, a flaming queer, to mock and degrade a non-historical figure?

No, go read Marbury v. Madison (1803). It's not quite that simple.

The rest of your argument would get your laughed out of any ConLaw I class in any accredited law school, which I am now quite certain you have never attented, nor could if you tried.

Your arguments are ideological, not legal, and are therefore irrelevant.

The rest of your post is simply unworthy of response.

I've also never made any argument about this applying to individuals, because that has not a damn thing to do with the subject of this thread.

The school was the putative defendant here.
