The US Supreme Court laid another stinky pile of manure today on its way out of town for summer vacation. To me this makes no legal sense. First they invalidated DOM (the federal Defense of Marriage Act) on the basis that states have the right to decide what their marriage laws should be. Then, in California’s Prop 8 case, they declare that the voters of a state do not have the right to decide what their definition of marriage should be.
Clearly, this is what you get without a moral compass to guide you. Moral Relativism leads only to schizophrenia and unintelligible nonsense. Congress could fix this but they lack the moral will to act. The net result is that another institution that once held the West on solid footing has fallen.
We need reformation or rebellion. Perhaps the question, “Who is John Galt” is not in our future but the dystopia we are creating leads only to the Road to Serfdom. Liberals in our time truly believe the big lie that “Slavery is Freedom” because that is what they have in store for us.
A relatively unknown Christian rock band called Quickflight did a song called “Modern Romans”. I think the title of this song is in fact our future. In ancient Rome, citizens could worship any god they wanted as long as Caesar is supreme. I fear we are heading toward the same belief; thus any beliefs that present a challenge to ruling class will be viewed as treasonous and will not be tolerated. Thus Christianity will be illegal. Those who renounce the supremacy of the State will be punished. Churches will be regulated and those that refuse to conform to the moral principles of the State will be outlawed. (Can you see why a 501.C3 is a bad idea?) It follows that Christians that maintain orthodox biblical beliefs will be prohibited from government benefits such as student loans, social security, federal or state jobs, etc. Also children of believers will be removed from their parents and given to others because of their intolerance and hateful beliefs such as opposing abortion, homosexuality and tyranny. To declare “Jesus is Lord” and truly believe it will soon be the unpardonable sin in our society.
This will happen sooner than later. Ironically, those that proclaimed they would always remember the Holocaust, are among those that will be putting us to the sword. They have already forgotten the promise that they made to the world to oppose tyranny in all its forms. They are aligned with those in power so the whole “when they came for me” argument is a non-starter. Proof? Had they really meant what they said, Roe v Wade would never have been allowed to stand.
I am reminded of the Curses recorded in Deuteronomy Chapter 28. I believe that this is the future we will experience if we stay on the path we are following. Here are a few highlights that will be visiting us:
15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.
18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do , until thou be destroyed , and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.
37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. 44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth ; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand ;
50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst , throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
As I read this, I keep thinking of China & Islam carving up the West. Judgment can lead to either repentance or destruction. Thus far, we keep choosing destruction.
