But doesn't it boil down to how it's interpreted?

We see the same thing with The Bible. Often times people interpret the messages a different way. If two preachers both interpret a passage differently, only one is going to be right, but does it mean the preacher who is wrong hates God or Christianity?

As I've said, I'm not an expert on all the ins and outs of the constitution, and I love to hear explanations from those who know more about it than I do. But I don't always consider the constitution to be a trump card in every political debate.
