The bill of rights only applied to the federal government?

The Bill of Rights, which is the first ten amendments to the US Constitution, when written only applied to the federal government. As written it does not apply to individuals, states, or foreign nations... it simply is a restriction upon the power of the federal government. It also provides redundant statements in the 9th and 10th Amendments which demonstrate the importance the founders placed upon said amendments. The 14th Amendment established the term citizen in section I: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States"... Prior to the 14th Amendment, an individual was only a citizen of their state. In the 20th century the Supreme Court ruled in a number of cases that some of the amendments found in the Bill of Rights, those in respect to the case being ruled upon, were to be applied to all citizens, therefore under the Supremacy Clause, state or local laws could not conflict with those amendments. Such amendments were incorporated under the 14th Amendment. It is important to note that as of writing this response, not all amendments and/or sections of amendments in the Bill of Rights have been incorporated. One such example is the 2nd Amendment in its entirety.

Why is the US Supreme Court split on such issues as school prayers and the death penalty?

The Court is split because some of the justices are conservative, believing the Constitution is not intended to ban school prayer and capital punishment, while others are progressive, believing school prayer is a violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause, and the death penalty is a violation of the Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.The Supreme Court's inability to agree on Constitutional interpretation speaks to two issues: 1) The Constitution is deliberately vague on the meaning of Amendments in the Bill of Rights; and 2) Supreme Court justices, being human, view the intent of the document through the filter of their personal ideologies.
