Dr. David Upham from the University of Dallas writes at the Liberty Law blog about the relation of natural law to originalism in judicial interpretation. He concludes:
Natural law theory, if true, affords nobility to such uncreative fidelity. According to the theory, the will of the many, as defined in law, can represent a participation, albeit imperfect, in Divine reason. Judicial fidelity to a popular Constitution, then demands not humility before the masses, but piety before nature’s Author. The piety of the faithful originalist might thus represent a virtue that can rival the glamorous creativity of the judicial artist.
