Scott Pilutik

I am an attorney and consultant living and working in Manhattan, focusing primarily on church/state constitutional law. I'm a recognized expert on the Church of Scientology organization. I also have strong interests in intellectual property law where it intersects with emerging media, and free speech.

I support the efforts of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the National Lawyers Guild, the ACLU, Creative Commons, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I am a member of the New York County Lawyers Association and the New York State Bar Association. I also enjoy (watching) hockey and (doing) photograhy.

Online I can be found on Facebook, Twitter. My resume can be viewed here. I can be reached by phone at 212.645.6241 or by e-mail at pilutik[at]

God’s Constitution

Primary season often finds Republican candidates foaming at the mouth to impress their rabid fringe and this season has been noteworthy in that regard, as Giuliani and Fred Thompson have shown, tripping over each other with redneck populist appeals. But Mike Huckabee, who up until now has mostly spoken to Christian fundamentalists in code, could not have been more clear in advocating for a theocracy.

I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution, But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that’s what we need to do — to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.
