Oh you goof. He didn't say it shouldn't be read. He stated the obvious. Currently, people "interpret" the Constitution, instead of taking it for what it actually says, to further their own causes.
Take the separation of church and state. The Constitution doesn't actually say there will be a "separation" of church and state. It says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,...". There is no reference stating a church can't have an influence on Government, just that Government can't have an influence on religion. But some people want to "interpret" it to mean an actual separation. I don't believe in a totally separate church and state, but don't make a huge fuss about it because I have my own interpretations that I DO like. As in the right to bears arms. The Constitution doesn't say I have a right to own and keep guns in my house for hunting, protection, collecting or ...It says that we the people can have guns in order to have an militia. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." But I like guns so I "WANT" it to say I can own them.
