Yep, what FL said.
I can only imagine their briefs are all copy and paste jobs.
There are private student loans I think, plus (in theory) scholarshipsOne cannot join the U.S. military unless one is already a permanent resident or citizen.
I would say this is even more reason to aim military though, they pay for it and room and board
I think that if we're using Scalia's "originalism," we'd look at the Founders and realize they were deists, who didn't believe God intervenes at all after setting the world into motion. So, I don't think it would be a huge stretch according to his actual theory that they would be just as happy with agnosticism or atheism or pastafarianism. Pastafarianism would certainly seem to be a good way to "practice" atheism with 1st amendment protection, but I wonder about the MOVE series of cases where they added the sincerely held element to the test.Had to research the pasta thing, I also looked up MOVE but found something that I doubt is what you were talking about (crazy *&^% though-and started as religious based all the same)
Realistically, it seems pretty clear that the current Court and some in the past would read the Free Exercise clause as benefitting religion over non-believers/non-practicers.
This is somewhat reflective of a larger tension between the Free Exercise and the Establishment clauses.
Nice comparison of his cushy and powerful job on the Supreme Court to the journey to Mt. Doom.
