Constitutional Corner: Legislating From the Bench ... By stating in Everson v. Board of Education that there should be an "impregnable wall" separating church and state, the Supreme Court didn't base their opinion on "the sense in which [the Constitution] was ratified by the nation," as James Madison suggested, nor did they take Thomas Jefferson's advice and base their interpretation on the "probable [meaning] in which [the Constitution] was passed." Nor did the court refer to Madison's own remarks on the floor of Congress as he explained the First Amendment's intent. Instead, they reached deep into a stack of Thomas Jefferson's presidential correspondence and located the idiom they were looking for: a "wall of separation." In fabricating their "wall," the Court essentially amended the amendment. They created a new law that then needed new rules (i.e., the Lemon Test and Yoder Test) for its interpretation.
