When I saw this story in the news – Air Force Base Removes Nativity Display After Group Claims It’s a ‘Direct Violation of the U.S. Constitution’ – I was reminded of something Supreme Court Justice, Joseph Story, said about the danger posed by our courts:
“The truth is, that, even with the most secure tenure of office, during good behavior, the danger is not, that the judges will be too firm in resisting public opinion, and in defence of private rights or public liberties; but, that they will be ready to yield themselves to the passions, and politics, and prejudices of the day.”
There is nothing – nothing – in the Constitution of the United States that prohibits religion being recognized, practiced, condoned or even promoted (in general terms) by the Federal government. You can search the document all you want and you will not find the words anywhere in the text. In order to come up with the supposed “wall of separation,” you have to invent things that are not there – and even then, you have to turn them on their head. In this case, the phrase “wall of separation” comes from a letter Jefferson wrote to a church that means the exact opposite of what the anti-Christians claim it means. Jefferson was not telling the church that the federal government was intended to be secular; he was telling the church that the federal government had no authority regarding matters of religion – period!
I no longer entertain the arguments of those who claim this nation was founded by men who did not fear God, or that they designed our government to be secular. The men who framed this nation and our government said otherwise: they, by their own hands, convict the secular humanists who now push their revisionist history in their crusade against religion. In fact, the people claiming there is a wall of separation are of the exact spirit the founders sought to protect the nation against when they wrote the 1st Amendment. But the rise of Progressivism in this nation changed the sentiments among that minority which seeks to control others, and the courts have been chief among these conspirators. That is the threat Story was warning us against: that the courts would reject their true duty and follow the sentiments of their times. Well, history has shown that this sage should now be considered legal prophet. Story was foretelling the rise of the ‘living document:’ the false idea that the Constitution changes according to the feelings and needs of the times. And he was right: this has made the courts the primary source of our national and social destruction.
I can quote the founders all day long, but the forces that wage war against the Judea/Christian ethic are beyond reason. History and fact matter little to them. To them, history is a mere thing to be re-written as the need arises. This is why the Progressives will spend more than a year telling you that “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor.” When the truth is revealed and you discover they knew they were lying, they change the story and tell you they never said that, what they said was you could keep your doctor “if you were willing to pay more.” The fact that we live in an age of video tape does not bother these people: they have embraced Hitler’s belief that you can make people believe anything – so long as you just keep telling the lie. If you have not done so recently, read George Orwell’s 1984 and see if you do not already live in a form of that very world he described.
But for those who are reading who can still be reached by reason, I ask you to consider something for me, please. If this nation were founded by secular men, and they intended for our government to be secular, do you think the first Supreme Court Chief Justice – and founding father of this nation – would have said these words?
“Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
Now, to those who insist on pushing the lies:
1 – John Jay was one of the founding fathers of this nation; he was there; he helped build this country and its government. He knows the founders, this nation and the Constitution better than you or I ever will.
2 – Jay was the first Supreme Court Chief Justice. This makes him a legal authority on the Constitution. He is more authoritative than any alive today.
3 – He said this was a Christian nation at the time of the founding. It was considered to be Christian – even by the Supreme Court – until the Progressives started to infiltrate the courts, reversed rulings, and started to deny and re-write history.
4 – Jay said that, as a Christian nation, it was the DUTY and in the best interest of the people to elect CHRISTIAN leaders!
In a world where logic and reason reign, this is a slam-dunk, iron-tight refutation of the claim that this nation was not Christian at its founding and that our government was intended to be secular. These things have been forced upon us by a minority and in direct violation of the 1st Amendment. That makes these people enemies of the State, as they have violated the Social Contract that is the Constitution. By not going through the legal process of Amending the Constitution to make this a secular nation (because they knew they couldn’t and still couldn’t), these people have placed themselves in a state of war against those who still seek to abide by the Constitution. Consequently, they no longer deserve nor can they legally claim any rights or protections under it. And here is the irony of ironies: the protections they seek – even the right to be free of religion – only exist because of the Judea/Christian ethic they now seek to destroy!
