The Legal Theory of Flag-Burning --
Mirror of Justice's Rob Vischer posts Toward a Catholic Legal Theory of Flag-Burning Amendments . . .

He notes: "Using the law to express the non-negotiable sanctity of the physical embodiment of national identity strikes me as an understandable, but ultimately absurd, endeavor. Further, given that Catholic legal theory is operating in the "reality-based world," I'll go ahead and open the MoJ debate on the flag-burning amendment with the (entirely unoriginal) observation that it seems like a colossal waste of time."

Then, he asks, "Are we all agreed that this is straightforward election-year posturing?" Hopefully, the answer to that question is yes.
