Mandeville, LA – Here is the essay I read on air during Tuesday’s broadcast that contained the caustic yet revealing lines: “We the people” made the Constitution, and “We the people” have worshipped it as the mirror of our own wisdom and power. Not Pharaoh boasting: “My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself;” not Nebuchadnezzar, strutting upon his palace wall and saying, “Is not this great Babylon that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honor of my majesty?” was more vain-glorious and atheistic than we have been in boasting of the mechanism of our political institutions. We have allowed all men to have their own religion or no religion, under the Constitution; but the Constitution itself has nothing to do with religion except as a barrier between it and the State!”
