Justice Antonin Scalia believes words in the U.S. Constitution ought to be applied as the original writers intended. Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel believes Scalia deserves a pat on the back.
"There's no way that we evolve away from the Constitution that the people adopted," he insists.
"The only way that the Constitution is to be changed is by the way the Constitution says it can be changed -- and that's through the amendment process. And that's very difficult to do. It's not changed by judges or by just simply five individuals who are placed on a bench."
Staver points out that the Constitution is and always has been a contract between the government and the citizens, and should not be changed by "a third party that decides to rewrite it."
