Unbelievable!

Wilder Publications has put a disclaimer on copies of the U.S.  Constitution that it sells.  It reads,"This book is a product of it’s time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race gender, sexuality, ethnicity and interpersonal relationships have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.” Similar warnings also appear on their productions of “The Federalist Papers” and “The Declaration of Independence.”  To say that I'm outraged is an understatement.  The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, to say nothing of the Federalist Papers are some of the finest documents ever written, they are the cornerstones of our republic,  and to put this kind of disclaimer on them is an insult.  it's bad enough when it's put on books like Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird, but to put it on our Constitutuion is an outrage.  I hope they go bankrupt because morally they're already bankrupt.
