US Supreme Court denies review of
Bald Knob Cross case from Sherman
The US Supreme Court today denied my petition for review of the case in which the State of Illinois forced atheist and other taxpayers to donate $20,000 towards the cost of rebuilding the 110-foot-tall Bald Knob Cross of Shame in southern Illinois near Carbondale. See Page 2, case # 12-621, on today's Order List from the US Supreme Court.

My case sought to have the Supreme Court establish that the constitutionality of expenditures of public funds shall be based on how the government spends our money, rather than on which branch of government makes (or claims credit for making) the expenditure, but the Supreme Court said, "No!" Instead, the Supreme Court has established that, now, both the Legislative and Executive Branches of government can make blatantly unconstitutional, so long as the Executive Branch is involved, either as the originator of the unconstitutional grant or as the middleman for an unconstitutional grant by the Legislative Branch.
This is bad government. The Supreme Court should be issuing decisions that compel the Executive and Legislative branches of government to abide by the Constitution, rather providing the other two branches of government with a simple roadmap for violating and defying the Constitution with impunity.
People from around the world, most recently from Ecuador, have told me how obvious it is to them that this grant was unconstitutional, but the mighty US Supreme Court continues to maintain its "Hear no evil, see no evil" approach to blatant constitutional violations.

Help support my work by purchasing a Rob Sherman News Mini-Crank Flashlight for $20. It never needs batteries. You just wind it up a few times and it works. Remember, you're not paying twenty bucks just for a flashlight. You are helping me to shine a light on and stop unconstitutional government policies and other catastrophically bad ideas by government and the private sector.
That's the value of what you are purchasing, and that's the difference between Rob Sherman Advocacy and most of the other groups. They talk about the problems of state/church separation. I do something about it and get the violations of your constitutional rights stopped. Besides, there aren't that many of the Rob Sherman News Mini-Crank Flashlights, so you might be able to make a lot of money selling this rare collector's item in a few years.
