Arrow The Constitution Minute


How well do you understand our Constitution?


The Constitution Minute is a series of brief, informative radio messages designed to improve your understanding of the meaning and history of the U.S. Constitution. Each Minute features Dr. Larry Arnn or another Hillsdale faculty member—the same ones who teach our students on campus—explaining one key constitutional principle.

All of the Constitution Minutes are available through the links below. If you are interested in learning more about the Constitution, sign up for a free online course from Hillsdale College. Register now for this free, ten-week, online course.

List of Minutes: The Constitution Minute


My favorite is number #1: "How did America’s Founders understand the words, “All men are created equal”?

Transcript: America’s founders knew, obviously, that human beings are not equal in terms of strength or beauty, or in terms of intelligence, industry or talents. They understood that because of such differences, differences in talents and things like that, some people would be wealthier than others. But human beings are equal, the founders believed, in their possession of natural rights, such as the rights to life, liberty and property. Today many American’s reject this equality of rights in order to pursue equality of condition through redistribution, or spreading the wealth around to use a famous formulation. This is destructive of liberty as the founders understood it.

Not well enough it seems. The quote given is not from the Constitiution. It's from the Declaration of Independence.

Violation of the First Ammendment for one. MKultiple massive lawsuits are going through the system against the HHS mandate.

One example:
EWTN is the first Catholic organization to file suit to stop the contraception mandate since the final HHS rules were published by the Obama administration on January 20, 2012. The lawsuit was filed on EWTN's behalf by the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. The United States has always protected religious freedom. Many have fought and died for these freedoms. Please sign the Becket Fund's petition asking the Administration to stop this unprecedented assault on religious freedom so that religious employers can stay in business and keep offering health insurance to their employees.

You may need to be specific. Can you quote that part of the First that is affected by health care?

Perhaps if you had quoted my entire post your question would have been answered.

Point 11 of the FAQs says the real issue is not access to contraception, but who pays for it. If the religious employers were not made to incur the cost, would that solve the issue?

Obviously, when the GOP win the 2016 election, they will set about dismantling Obamacare. Will there remain any other rights having been taken from Christians once that is done?

What if the employers gave the cost of the insurance cover to the employee and the employee was then obliged to pay for his health insurance himself. The employee is not then paying for something with which they disagree.

Actually, the situation is exactly the same. It's just fiddling the books to stop some people whinging about this and get them whinging about something else.

Maybe the employers would like an inventory of everything on which the employee spends his or her money so they can be sure they're not helping support moral issues with which they disagree.

'Here's your wages, Gray. And attached is 3 volume document listing things that you are not allowed to spend it on. Please read and sign the acceptance form'.
