      from sheriffs and judge's to public school teachers. I can understand that you're not a fan of that principle in this case. However, its because almost all of the freedoms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights have been found to apply to the 50 states that it's true. Would you rather that states didn't have to follow the Bill of Rights? Would you prefer that public schoolkids in Kansas are forced to say the Lords Prayer every morning?
