Supreme Court Ignorance

The Supreme Court today announced decisions on two cases about displays of the 10 Commandments in public places. Austin TX was allowed to keep their display because it was in a historical context, and no complaints existed for 20 years. Kentucky was not allowed to keep their display because, even though it currently is in a historical display, the intent was religious. Justice Souter argued that the First Amendment required the government to always rule against religion, and remain completely neutral.

The arrogance and ignorance of such a decision astounds me. How can one be devoted always rule against religion and still claim neutrality? The fact that the court has a growing hostility toward God and Christianity in particular can no longer be denied. Only a fool says in his heart that there is no God, and apparently we have at least 4 on them on the Supreme Court. The fact that anyone would think that the Constitution required neutrality on religion when every government session opens with prayer, instituted by those founding fathers who wrote the Constitution, shocks the mind and befuddles all reason. President George Washington called for a National Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer. The Supreme Court building itself has a display of Moses that clearly is more religious than historical. Even as lately as President Eisenhower religion was openly accepted by the government. Eisenhower inserted the phrase “under God” into the pledge of allegiance to help show the difference between America and the godless Communists. Now our Supreme Court appears to have a 5 to 4 majority of godless Communists.

I also want to point out that after all of the discussion about these decisions on all the TV talk shows today, I did not hear one word about the Tenth Amendment. Not one. Even on so-called conservative news channels. All of the arguing has been about the First Amendment, which only specifically mentions Congress. The Tenth Amendment makes sure that all rights not delegated to the Federal Government remains with the States. Yet, here we are telling Kentucky what they can and cannot do. It is not the First Amendment that was violated in these rulings, it was the Tenth.

God save our Union!
