"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

This case (regardless of the decision at the trial court level) is destined for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Although it's impossible to make a prediction as to the outcome.

Remember the Kelo case, re the Fifth Amendment? Seemed pretty cut and dried that the Constitution was clear about property rights and "takings". How'd that one work out?
