The 14th Amendment

O.K. I was looking for a simple explanation of the 14th Amendment and the incorporation doctrine. It doesn't exist. Or I'm too lazy to find it. But the point to remember, Keyes didn't address the incorporation concept at all. He completely ignored the argument (and established Supreme Court jurisprudence) that the 14th Amendment incorporated the First Amendment, including the principles of separation of church and state, upon the states.
