Cake in the rain.


We all know this isn’t about cake.

I’m trying to sort this out for my own sake, and then for my students’.

Cornell Law Review Link.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Here is a chart I put together. It’s only a start, and I’m wondering what is missing:

The different spaces and places for the First Amendment

Someone sent me a full list of people who were discriminated against because of religion.  And though he didn’t mean to, he proved my point. It’s discrimination. The shop owner of the bakery and the flower shop are discriminating.

Consider providing this question to students, with a chart similar to mine: how would they discern and analyze various laws and where and when they fail or work?
