Majestic (2001) (Movie)
I like this quote!I don't like this quote!
Peter Appleton: The 10th Ammendment is off the table. But there is another Ammendment I'd like to invoke. I wonder if anyone here is familiar with it. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."
Congressman Doyle: You're out of order!
Peter Appleton: "Shall make no law... respecting - "
Congressman Doyle: My chamber will come to order!
Peter Appleton: "An establishment of religion... or prohibiting free exercise thereof... or abridging freedom of speech, or of the press... or of the right to petition for a redress of grievances."
Congressman Doyle: Do not presume to lecture this Committee!
Peter Appleton: The First Ammendment. It's what we're about, if we'd live up to it. It's part of the contract every citizen has here. Even though the Constitution and the Bill of Rights... are just pieces of paper with signatures on them... they're the only contracts that we have that are defintely not subject... to renegotiation. Not by you, Mr.Chairman.
Congressman Doyle: Mr.Appleton!
Peter Appleton: Not by you, Mr.Clyde.
Congressman Doyle: Stand down!
Peter Appleton: Not by anyone, ever. Too many people have paid in blood.
Congressman Doyle: Enough, sir! You are out of order!
Peter Appleton: People like Luke Trimble and all the sons of Lawson, California. And they deserve better than this. All you boys do.
Congressman Doyle: I will have order or I will clear this chamber!
Peter Appleton: When you get right down to it, fell as... that's all I have to say to you.
[he leaves the courtroom]
