    Rubbish.

    For the guy has long been a poster on TOL whose posts have often resulted in the exploration of many subjects worth looking into, and further reflecting on.

    His question is...a great one.

    I have not passed the bar (what is it?) or practiced law. I do teach the Law.
    The majority of the population in the country was Christian and Judeo-Christian philosophy was a major part, one could even argue the term foundational, of the society. However, the writers of the Constitution gave us a very intentional secular document and government. There are numerous reasons for this, the enlightenment view that predominated at the time, that church and state should be separate, was part of it. A major consideration though was the issue that each of the states having a state religion most with very different views that clashed with each other. If the Federal government showed favor to one or the other it would have torn the new union apart so they wisely just removed the issue of religion all together with the First Amendment establishment clause.

    Each state has a legal panel that tests and provides approval for a lawyer to practice law. This is usually called the bar. To the best of my knowledge, no state allows you to be a practicing lawyer without that certification. While it is not technically a requirement in many cases to have been a practicing lawyer to be a judge, it is really one of those don't bother to submit your resume without it sort of things.

    Afterwards, the Judge (who it turned out was also a Believer) said to them something along the line of "not only were you found out, but you had no business bringing this matter before a secular court of Law - as Pastors, you of all people, each ought to know this, better than anyone..."

    Such are still sore about that to this very day, all these years later.

    Rare Judge, indeed...

    A Theocracy over the U.S.?

    Nope...

    As those Pastors had long been proving all along - there are enough frauds in the pulpit.

    God forbid the same be unleashed into a position of power, as...a "Theocracy."

    Case in point...

    Matthew 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. 23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 23:6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 23:7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

    23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 23:30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

    There are more than enough frauds in secular government, as it is.
    Do you recognize any good judge or court? That might be good for you to do.

    Do people vote for a judge or is one appointed?

    It makes sense that we would be able to study law.

    On the Federal level, they are appointed with congressional oversight and approval. It varies in the states.

    Okay. Thank you. We need people who will make good decisions. I believe that I can.
