The Supreme Court Gets One Right

In October 2017, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that publicly funded maintenance of the Brandenburg Peace Cross Memorial was unconstitutional because it “excessively entangles the government in religion because the cross is the core symbol of Christianity and breaches the wall separating church and state.” Beginning in 1774, Congress appointed chaplains for itself and […]

‘One Court Under Charles Darwin’

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 […]

Would you support stealing if your child was a thief?

Rob Portman an Ohio Senator is the first Republican in the Senate to support homosexual marriage. In 1996, Portman voted for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriage.

Reasons Christians use for sending their children to government schools

A short video clip of me putting my finger on one of the main reasons America is in spiritual, moral, educational, and political decline is that more than 90 percent of Christian parents send their children to government-regulated, State-run schools. I’ve been asked by a few people to comment on objections that are often raised […]

Is a Return to Natural Law a Good Thing?

When Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas appealed to Natural Law theory in some of his legal opinions and writings, there were those on the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings in September 1991 that took exception. The most vocal critic was former Senator and now Vice President Joseph Biden. It was that debate more than […]

Homosexual Marriage Isn’t as Good as Heterosexual Marriage

Marriage is an establishment of God, a creation ordinance, set forth in Genesis and reiterated by Jesus in Matthew 19. If the Bible isn’t true, and isn’t the standard we should live by, then marriage shouldn’t exist at all. Attempting to rationalize and sanction homosexual marriage is ludicrous and inconsistent with an atheistic worldview.

Why Liberal Judges Rule the Way they Do

“[T]he English students at Harvard University once insisted on the Boston telephone book being placed on the reading list alongside the works of Shakespeare as . . . there is no greater merit in the one than the other. Good and evil are, therefore, totally relative to the society in which these values are held […]

101 Thoughts on America’s Economy

The Church Needs to Grow Up and Get a Kingdom Life

Another National Day of Prayer has come and gone. Wisconsin U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb put a negative spin on the day by ruling that the practice is unconstitutional. She ruled that “the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience. . . . The government may not […]

Higher Law vs. Horizontal Law

The Constitution states that it is “the supreme law of the land” (Art. 6). This can’t mean that it is the supreme moral law of the land since there is very little of what we think of moral law in it. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land only in terms of what powers are actually enumerated in the document itself. If the Constitution does not address a topic, it has no authority over it and therefore does not carry the validity of “supreme law.” The Constitution assumes an existing body of moral law. That’s why you will not find a prohibition against murder, rape, theft, marriage. These moral issues were settled by the populations of the various colonies (and later states) and were written into their law codes.[1] Paul Campos, law professor at the University of Colorado, is nearly correct when he writes:

The National Reform Association

In 1861, a small Presbyterian denomination known as the Covenanters, founded in 1809 in Western Pennsylvania, created a petition that pointed out that the Constitution made no reference to Jesus Christ and the law of God.  “The petition received initial support from Senator Charles Sumner, and in 1862 two Covenanter ministers presented the document to […]

Say No to Latinas, Italians, African Americans, and One-Legged Men

So a “Latina” has been nominated by Barack Obama to replace the retiring David Souter. Please explain to me how her ethnicity should make any difference. If Sonia Sotomayor were living in Puerto Rico, would her ethnicity be a factor? Of course not! So why should it matter in the United States? It shouldn’t. Her […]
