Stossel’s guest was Timothy Sandefur, the author of The Conscience of the Constitution. Despite acknowledging the Constitution’s repeated failures at restraining the state, Sandefur remained unyielding in his adoration for the document so close to his heart. In a strange turn of events, the Stossel taping suddenly felt like a biblical awakening. Sandefur explained how when he was in 9th grade he “fell in love with the Constitution,” and following the Tinker vs Des Moines Supreme Court case, “the Constitution reached out and touched” him. Never before has the comparison of statism and religion been so on point.
