Unfortunately, the Supreme Court has become, contrary to the Constitution, our nation’s de facto law-making body based on the moral relativism of evolution. A nation of 325 million people is now governed by the whims of four, soon to be five, unelected Supreme Court Justices.
It does not matter if a decision from the Supreme Court is contrary to the Constitution, because in the words of Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes (1862-1948), “We are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is, and the judiciary is the safeguard of our liberty and of our property under the Constitution.”
If the Constitution is what the judges say it is, how is it possible for there to be a safeguard on any moral or legal principle when the Constitution is said to be a “living” and evolving” document where liberty and property can be redefined?
“But the core of [Paul’s] message [in Romans 13:1–4] is that government — however you want to limit that concept — derives its moral authority from God. It is the ‘minister of God’ with powers to ‘revenge,’ to ‘execute wrath,’ including even wrath by the sword (which is unmistakably a reference to the death penalty). Paul of course did not believe that the individual possessed any such powers. Only a few lines before this passage, he wrote, ‘Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.’ And in this world the Lord repaid — did justice — through His minister, the state. These passages from Romans represent the consensus of Western thought until very recent times.”1
Today, the majority of people would rather have the evolving moral worldview of Darwin than the fixed moral standards of God that limits personal retaliation (anarchy) and the unbridled power of the State (totalitarianism).
An evolving Constitution in the hands of justices who do not believe in a God-ordained higher law and have embraced the claim that the human race is “just a chemical scum” that evolved into “an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star,” as Stephen Hawking puts it, is judicial suicide.
It isn’t just judicial suicide… it’s national suicide, as well.
Often times, even personal suicide.
But no matter: Christians are not to “Live for the State and the People, and Die for the State and the People.”
This culture will die, by it’s own hand. Indeed, with the destruction of the unborn and the perversion of justice, it is already dead, so far as the world of the spirit is concerned: after all, Adam was declared to be spiritually dead as soon long before he was physically dead.
We’re just waiting until our supposed Lord and Master, the State, kindly dries up and blows away.
But we don’t have to just pray and wait: we can work and teach and build, as well.
Every Establishment Man seethes with hatred every time a Christian family has a new child, and raises him in the nurture and admonition of the Lord… but Establishment Man is on the wrong side of the technological revolution: a revolution that decentralizes and disperses, not centralizes and concentrates, power and authority.
The Fall of Our Masters is like most forms of bankruptcies, even most forms of death: gradually, and then suddenly. Step by step, they lose respect and legitimacy: and step by step, we are to advance in regaining our liberty, our freedom, and our right to be ruled by the Lord of our choosing… and not the will of wealthy and powerful liars, Lord of Power and Pleasure well-versed in generating a wave of manufactured consensus.
By working the small victories, by despising dependence on Our Masters who Hate Us, by pushing the boundary whenever and wherever we can, we ready ourselves for the great victory, when the Welfare State dies and the massive bribes cease.
That’s the goal.
