Jorge Gomez: Secular Constitutions Don’t Work

Broadcast Running Time: 24:11

The beautiful thing about our Constitution is that the freedoms afforded in it pertain to every person equally.  But there’s talk of forming a secular constitution.  Joining us today is Jorge Gomez (firstliberty.org), Content Strategist and Writer for First Liberty Institute.  He looks at the clause that isn’t there – separation of church and state, as well as the freedom that is there – namely religious freedom in the First Amendment.  Our Constitution stands for everyone, but under a secular constitution, the state is the ultimate power.  Religious groups would then not receive fair and equal treatment, depending on who is in power.  It’s important to remember: if the state can grant the rights, the state can take the rights away.
