Even if a person has declined the title and reputation of a “Trumpster,” the common sense elements of his proposed travel ban affecting six terrorist occupied countries should hold some appeal. The Democrats have gone judge shopping to throw up road blocks for the President’s executive orders which are intended to insure a greater safety for the American people. Fox News recently ran a montage of officials during the Obama administration who were essentially suggesting the same approach that Mr. Trump is advocating. What is the difference between then and now…nothing except pure politics!
Liberals have long relied on judicial activism to advance their agenda which is generally destructive to the American way of life. The cultural landscape of this nation has been dramatically altered in my lifetime due to rulings by the Supreme Court. None of these decisions were voted on by the public or approved by Congress, yet they have become the law of the land. It may be profitable to any concerned citizen to review some of these landmark judgments.
1947 – Everson vs. Board of Education: The Supreme Court adopted the phrase “Separation of Church and State” to the Establishment Clause of the Constitution. The only “constitution” that utilized that phrase at that time was the constitution of the Soviet Union (1927).
1954 – Brown vs. Board of Education: The Court decided that the purpose of public education was to produce “collectivism;” that was the most important function for all States. Webster’s 1956 Dictionary defines “collectivism” as “a politico-economic system of organization characterized by collective control over production and distribution, for example, government ownership of wealth, as in communism, or control by a party under state supervision, as in fascism.” Was Congress asleep?
1961 – Torcaso vs. Watkins: In the decision one of the Justices stated that “among religions…which do not teach…a belief in the existence of God are…Secular Humanism and others.” This led to lower court decisions in 1965, 1970, 1977-79, and 2005 which made atheism a protected religion under the law. Once again, Mr. Webster demonstrates the inconsistency of these rulings when he defines atheism as “Disbelief in, or denial of, the existence of a Supreme Being, or one who rejects some or all of the essential doctrines of religion.” Religion is described as “the service and adoration of God, or a god as expressed in forms of worship.” How can atheism be a religion when it has no god or system of worship? The Courts had to do an end run around the English language to arrive at this convoluted result!
1962 – Engel vs. Vitale: It was decided that the following prayer should be thrown out of public schools: “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee; and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country.”
1963 – Abington School District vs. Schempp: It was decided that the Bible should be booted from the public schools. We are still waiting for a similar ruling regarding the Koran! What are the odds? Does anyone truly believe our schools have improved since God has been unceremoniously rejected?
1964 – Heart of Atlanta Motel vs. United States and Katzenbach vs. McClung: What was being sold as equal rights has been translated into “affirmative action” (i.e. special privileges for one race). This has hindered race relations far more than it has helped.
1973 – Roe vs. Wade: Abortion became sponsored by the government. This has led to the searing of the public conscience in hundreds of other areas.
1976 – Planned Parenthood vs. Danforth: Minors have Constitutional “rights” against their parents. No parent can restrict their child from having an abortion. The State is to protect the child from her own parents. The question that begs to be resolved is…who or what protects the child from the State?
1980 – Stone vs. Graham: The Ten Commandments were thrown out of all public schools because the students might “read, meditate upon, and perhaps venerate and obey the Commandments which is not a permissible objective.” Of course, the present day chaos is permissible.
1987 – Edwards vs. Aguillard: Only one theory of origins can be taught in public schools (contrary to what the ACLU argued in the “Scopes Monkey Trial of 1926”), and that is evolution; no student can be taught creationism because it “lacks a clear secular purpose.”
These are but a few of the anti-God decisions that the Court has handed down to seditiously menace the spiritual and psychological welfare of Americans. The courts are now willing to play Russian roulette with your physical wellbeing. God is a nationalist exercising a high regard for national sovereignty. (Acts 17:24-27) The spirit of the antichrist (I John 4:3) is one of internationalism purposed to install a one world government. These judges are playing with more fire than they can imagine.
Various religions celebrate holidays or events that they hold sacred or significant. The poor atheists have no such holiday, but in the mood of benevolence we extend to them the opportunity to declare April 1st International Atheist Day. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God” (Psalm 14:1; 53:1).
