Hinikaragi! Suzan: Interesting article and I would add highlight your comment about the "Supreme Court" having a Catholic majority and it's guiding legal principles (rationalization) that are rooted in the Christain Doctrine of Discovery. Those of us that are continually oppressed by this unilateral religious doctrine understand that the "Supreme Court" is really the "Supreme Church." We know non-christian Native Nations lose 80% of the time in that "legal" forum. Maybe we need to think about "Christian privilege" as it relates to the "Supreme Church's" dispossession of life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness of non-christian people, especially those of an indigenous relation, and living on and off "Indian Reservations." The idea that there is a separation of church and state in the U.S. does not really exist. All we need to do is look to the Marshall Trilogy and the Papal Bulls; not to mention the supreme court justices religious affiliation. Just thought, keep the dialogue going.
