Man Who Wrote Unconstitutional School Prayer: ‘ I Couldn’t Care Less About the… Minority. The Majority Rules’

Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!” is hosting a four-part series on PBS called Constitution USA and one of the segments he filmed involves our friend Jessica Ahlquist:

Dammit, Jessica. Yesterday, the Playboy Mansion, now Peter Sagal?! Stop having this much fun!

Sagal also talks to David Bradley, the man who wrote the school prayer than Jessica helped bring down. Around the 7:20 mark, Sagal brings up the fact that, while 95% of the students might agree with his prayer, the Constitution is supposed to protect that 5% who don’t, so what does he think of that?

Bradley emphatically responds with, “I couldn’t care less about the 5%… they’re in the minority. The majority rules.”

So there you have it. In Bradley’s view, whatever the majority wants, the majority gets. Forget about civil rights for black people, sorry gay people, go home Jews. You’re all in the minority and your needs and wants and beliefs have no business in Bradley’s world.

He comes off looking like an asshole while Jessica appears strong and intelligent. A great segment, through and through.
