Indiana Barrister’s Abdul Hakim-Shabazz got himself a lecture from Rep. Dan Burton when Mr. Shabazz had the audacity to ask tough questions about Rep. Sodrel’s court-stripping scheme. He has a good post up on the day’s events. I noticed other blog entries at Advance Indiana and The Howey Report.
In addition to some relevant analysis of Judge Hamilton’s decision, Abdul wishes we could have an Eleventh Amendment: “Thou shall not grandstand and use my name in the process!” Moses didn’t offer any such commandment, so we have to rely on the New Testament instead:
And when ye pray, ye shall not be as the hypocrites: for they love
to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets,
that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thine inner chamber, and
having shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy
Father who seeth in secret shall recompense thee.
And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
