Proud Member of the Constitution Cult!

Oh, yah.

So far, they've tried 1) "stupid," 2) "bitter," and 3) "Bible-clingers", not to mention 4) Nazis, 5) crypto-Hitlers, and 6) "haters" (cf 'bigots').

That's only a partial list, but we don't have all day.

Here's the variation on #3:

Most cults are based in some sort of skewed spiritual vision or the worship of a charismatic leader, but there is a re-emerging cult that bows down at the feet of the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Many of them want to bring their cultish beliefs to the halls of Congress and are running for election this fall.

They’re called the “tenthers”and they say federal laws and rules like the minimum wage, Medicare, Social Security, unemployment insurance, the Department of Education, even child labor laws and a laundry list of other federal laws and programs are unconstitutional. --Larry Cohen of C.W.A. quoted at RedState

Naturally, it's easier to create and knock down straw-men than real ones. While the 10th Amendment (and its partner, the 9th) clearly restrict the Federal Government from all sorts of activities, it does NOT necessarily follow that "Tenthers" object to every item on the above lists.

But as long as we're talking about religious beliefs, let's talk about the sacrament of abortion, held to be an absolute necessity by the Left, as well as their forebears on the Isle of Minos and in the temples of the Aztecs.

They'll give up D of Ed. and child labor protections LONG before they give up abortion.
