So, back in the 1950s and 1960s, many believed, based upon their local church and pastor, that racial segregation was ordained by the Bible. Scripture -- chapter and verse -- was cited by many ministers. Joe X owns a store and believes the Bible ordains segregation. Up comes the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Joe X says serving blacks contradicts his well-anchored Biblical beliefs. Is Joe X right?
And, incidentally, Madison wrote on it in the Federalist Papers and offers other thoughts in his account of the Constitutional Convention. It is 3 volumes ... 2 of them give the account of the Philadelphia Convention ... the third is correspondence among the Framers from the Convention into the 1830s. Read that?
Just to explain, bringing an impeachment proceeding against a federal officer .... de facto, an impeachable offense is anything that a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives decides. Read the damn Constitution. Who decides what is treason (read the law on that one and the conditions), bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Parse the words all you want. De facto .... it is what a majority of the US House decides. There are many good books that are anchored in the "history of American law" and review impeachments of federal officers since the founding of the Republic. Read any of them?

Impeachment is political. Intro Gov 101. Intro History 101. As to treason ... do you know the conditions, legally, to bring a treason case? And ... lest your forget ... the word COUP? Where is the word COUP in the Constitution? Tell us.
I attack? (laugh). Go through my posts and see if I have ever called a name? Don't put words in my mouth. I've sentient enough to pick my own words.
I don't save your posts. Every post from every person here goes into an archive. Didn't you know that? Everything ... everyone writes ... is preserved. You didn't know that?
A coup. You said it.
Plus, a few days back, you advocated treason, conviction and death for political reasons. "So it seems the best chance for our Republic to survive this Treason from the highest office in the land and our feckless, lawless Representatives, is for a military coup to remove the president and ALL his men, try them for Treason, convict them, and have them shot according to Law." It is in your archive. February 24th. Have a blessed 2nd Sunday of Lent.
I prefer to read St. Augustine and Aquinas.
So, drive around tomorrow .. question the congregants that attend church ... and cast the "unclean" out. Right? You can read minds, hearts, souls, and decipher silent prayers? That is your implication. You are quite powerful.
