[... The Supreme Court overreached by imposing its will over the states...]
Thank you for taking the time to reflect on my post.
It is extremely helpful as some of my ideas come from
strong emotion. As I massage this piece, “overreached”
and “Natural Law” are terms I’ll embrace for the sake
Mr. Antoninus accuses me of advocating anarchy. But
I say the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize murder
of the unborn is anarchy. Just look around and reflect
back from 1975 to now. Does society look organized?
Civilized? Informed? Evolved? I say NO! It doesn’t
take a cultural analyst or a Social Engineer to recognize
that our culture is in serious decline.
To protect civilization, we must practice and teach
God’s law from the home then (because God is faithful
when we obey His Word), that law will naturally flow
out and “correct” the culture.
John Nesbitt’s “Megtrends” makes the point that
lasting and genuine trends start from the bottom
(the home or the street). Synthetic fads start
from the top (advertising or government), and do
Goverment is our friend when it sticks to the business
of providing infrastructure and protecting EVERY citizen.
We are well past that now. This old ship won’t turn
without a moral, Godly rudder. We won’t find that rudder
in our courts or in our houses of Government. That moral
rudder is in the houses of the people and cannot be
legislated from us. So... we are without excuse.
For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst
weave me in my mothers womb. I will give thanks to
Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfuly made.... (snip) ...
Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance...
The Constitution doesn't just protect citizens. It protects all PERSONS.
Even Judge Blackmun, the author of Roe, recognized such when in the body of the decision he admitted that if the unborn were persons they were protected by the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment.
And that means on every square inch of American soil.
“This old ship wont turn without a moral, Godly rudder. We wont find that rudder in our courts or in our houses of Government. That moral rudder is in the houses of the people and cannot be legislated from us. So... we are without excuse.”
I agree with that much. At the same time, deceivers hide behind unjust law. Roe v. Wade was judicial legislation. It was incredibly unpopular at the time. 49 states classified abortion as a felony. The courts and the colleges have eroded our nation’s of right and wrong.
Since they got away with that, the courts reached further with Kelo.
Teach the American public about the Judeo-Christian value system. How the Declaration of Independence created by the Founding Fathers summarized the best of these values. That Senator McCain stands for this statement in it’s top level thinking:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...”
Many Americans call talking points assigned to political Representatives as issues. Political parties put themselves into camps based on issues. Keeping track of each candidates there set of issues and if they match our own tastes is convoluting the very basic principles of the Judeo-Christian Value System. Politicians running for office often times prey on such ignorance to win elections. You don’t ignore the issues, you remind the American voter that all your positions on the ‘issues’ are based on the Declaration of Independence powerful and simple statement and you base your policy making on such as well. When a candidates running for office do this, then will leaders emerge and provide the wisdom-led governance Americans crave so desperately. Conservatives, stop acting like liberals being dragged into middle road positions on ‘issues’.
