The Republic's EJ Montini has spent the last few weeks arguing that Kim Davis deserved to be in jail. His lame attempts at DIY lawyering show that he has no understanding of the fundamental concepts underlying the freedom of speech.
Then in today's column he bashes the Legislature for requiring high school students to take a Civics test and inadvertently writes the most ironic sentence of the week.
Besides, cramming for an exam is not the same as comprehending the rights and responsibilities of being a U.S. citizen. Knowing (for the test) that there are 27 amendments to the U.S. Constitution is not the same as grasping the underlying concepts behind free speech and freedom of religion.
