I believe you are mistaken. For example:
Amendment 1 states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Yet, as clearly reported, “Cruz’s Christian worldview is on display in virtually every speech he delivers. His campaign is perhaps best described as a reclamation project. He wants to “restore,” “return to,” or “reclaim” the “Judeo-Christian values” that he believes are “the foundation of this nation.” (http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2016/april-web-only/religion-of-ted-cruz.html) I don’t need to go through every sentance of every speech he has made to prove that Rafi is interested, nay demanding, that the United States have a formal relition and damn the torpedos if anyone feels their religion, or lack there of meits the same level of respect. That is not supporting the Bill of Rights.
I stand corrected on the Court — there is no requirement for 9 members, the exact size of the Court is left up to Congress to decide. Clearly Congress has decided they wish the court to be eight members. That is their perogative.
