Today is July 4th, the birthday of our nation. This nation as stood for 236 years. How many more birthdays will we celebrate for our nation? We have had the longest free republic in the history of the world. How much longer can our nation stand with its rebellion against God?
The Bible says:
…For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required:
God has blessed this nation and we do know His ways. After all He has done for God, we, as a nation, have turned our back on Him. Part of the message of Fortress of Faith is that, if we continue in our sin and rebellion against God, we will see His judgment.
An Attempt To Overthrow Our Government?
Justice Scalia used a word in his dissenting statement that most of us are unfamiliar with. He didn’t just dissent, he gave a scathing rebuke of the Court’s going far beyond its constitutional powers.
But what really astounds is the hubris reflected in today’s judicial Putsch.
He used two unfamiliar words here. The word “hubris” implies excessive arrogance. The word “Putsch” means a violent attempt to overthrow a government. He is telling us that arrogance, haughtiness, and pride, reflected in the Court’s decision, is a violent attempt to overthrow the United States government.
The judicial branch of our government is no longer able to properly conform to its boundaries. The other two branches of government are not holding it accountable. The executive branch, the President’s administration, has been violating its role in many ways. The legislative branch, Congress, has no will to stand up against what is happening.
Can we recover from this?
Justices can be impeached. Is this the answer? It is a possible answer because the Senate has the power to impeach. It could bring up charges of impeachment against the five Justices who brought about this illegal action. Do we see the will in the Senate to do so? I don’t think so.
We just saw the Senate give the President authority to negotiate the TPP, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which basically hands over the sovereignty of the US to set up something like the European Union. I don’t see the will of the Senate to overthrow these Justices.
We need to remember that it is not just this one decision that is the problem. We have had a repeated pattern of abuse by the Court. Every time any court makes a law it turns our entire republic upside down.
If Congress is not willing to stand up for their own powers it makes Congress and empty figurehead. Our whole system of government is gone.
The Supreme Court not only acted as legislators, they acted as God by inventing a new right. Our Declaration of Independence says that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We recognize that it is God who gives us rights, and that these rights cannot be touched. These Justices acted like God by granting a new right.
What is happening is serious, not only because of what it does for homosexual rights, but for the survival of our nation and our freedoms.
I believe that this is going to lead to a division in our nation. I don’t see how our republic, as a whole, can stand in light of this unlawful act on the part of the Supreme Court. I think we will possibly see states like Texas and Alaska looking to secede. Some are already saying we want to have a convention of states to correct the problems. This will not work because you will just have the same legislators in the convention. These legislators are already making these ridiculous rules in the state legislatures.
Our efforts must be more regional, more local, to try to restore the rule of law. By rule of law I mean to have a society that is living by a civil code, that is not allowing an Oligarchy, which is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. We can’t allow a dictator in the White House to have his way. I don’t see the Republic recovering as a whole from this. This is why to solution must come from a regional and local level.
I really fear that the United States may not remain united for much longer. I suspect we are headed for some kind of a reformation, a dividing up of our country. It seems like the liberals are bent on the changing of our nation from a nation of the rule of law, to a nation run by a few at the top. This can only break our nation up.
