While interpreting a woman’s right to abortion in 1973, the Supreme Court made a landmark decision to allow a woman to abort an unborn child for any reason. Going far beyond giving rights to women over their own bodies that decision (Roe v Wade) gave a woman the right over another’s body even before either science or the court could sufficiently answer the question of when life actually begins.
In classic fashion Biblical moralists were dismissed out of hand with the help of the emerging interpretation of the first amendment; an interpretation that is fully ingrained in the national psyche and is commonly referred to as ‘the separation of church and state.’ The climate was created and entire organizations such as the ACLU began regularly trying to remove tablets and monuments with the Ten Commandments from public places, scuttling all allusion to God in classrooms and attacking Christmas displays of the nativity.
Those were the early days of the get God out movement, but today we have advanced the effort to include calling for the removal of statues from veterans’ gravesites, attacking the sanctity of marriage and of now we have stooped to laws that actually indoctrinate and use the power of suggestion and assent to endanger our children to accept deviant sexual practices.
This month New York City will begin its mandated sex education for sixth graders and up, which includes not only explicit materials but education in alternative lifestyles such as homosexual and bi-sexual. Under the guise of protecting youth from not seeking protection during sex we will now propose to feed the emerging libidos of the prepubescent with options and titillating choices that heretofore were commonly picked up in the street: or the gutters depending on your view.
It is a clear violation of parental rights to add to the list of new laws that are steadily attacking the right of parents to guide their own offspring. It is Hillary Clinton’s ‘It Takes a Village’ taken all too seriously.
Now the Senate Judiciary Committee is set to begin their debate starting on November 3, 2011 on the repeal of DOMA; (Defense of Marriage Act) a bill which if formed against DOMA, President Obama has already indicated he is more than willing to sign into law. Ignoring the over 40 states that have passed legislation to protect marriage the fed is looking for a way to effectively circumvent and neutralize the will of the people, state by state, yet once again.
While the conservatives are embroiled in debates about Barack Obama’s leftist, socialistic ideologies has no one noticed that his moral stand (or lack thereof) has already begun to set the stage for the cabal of purveyors and promoters of all that is immoral, deviant and offensive to basic human dignity? Lest we forget, these laws and mandates are so far removed from the declared laws of the living God that we can finally understand passages of the Old Testament that were spoken by the prophets just prior to the fall of certain cities and nations. The writer of Proverbs said what every American should be considering in this day of perversion. “He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind” (Pr 11: 29a)
There is little doubt that Barack Obama has set the stage and provided the climate in which the deviant are emboldened to do their worst. Is this a fair assessment? Yes, if we take a broad view of how trends are now being empowered by the strength of law to re-cast morality as something that can be re-molded, re-shaped and enforced by legislation. Is this now the business of government, of presidents?
In days of yore, Southern Baptist Convention icon Dr. Richard Land wisely noted that, you can’t legislate morality, but you will surely have to legislate laws to protect us from the rise of immorality. Dr. Land could not have imagined a day in which laws would be used to promote immorality rather than prevent it. None of us could!
It’s a case of who has the last laugh even though it is no laughing matter. The parent that would teach their children to abstain until marriage would be laughed to scorn, but in reality the product of single parent families, the overburdened welfare rolls and the nasty rise in sexually transmitted diseases has had the last laugh on a society that thinks that restraints of traditional marriage and higher morality derived from the scriptures are outdated, draconian and anachronistic. Not the best late night comedians can make this a laughing matter.
Moving on in our survey, the life canceling, morally depraved and socially repugnant tinkering by legislators we must include the full implications of Obamacare, which threatens not just our economy, but the safety and health of our seniors and even adds a suggestion of assisted suicide.
These laws are not the path to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but rather are the epitome and the very pathology of lawlessness crafted by law makers to create a complete reversal and total perversion of Gods laws and mandates. Put simply, this is not the right path, and by no stretch of the imagination is it a path to righteousness. “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.” (Psalm 23: 3)
The panoramic view is; the life of the unborn is up for grabs depending on the mood of the mother. The childhood, innocence and clarity that God, nature and man’s best laws could offer a child, are being abandoned for the new morality and the gay agenda by the legislators who had previously sworn to protect them. The aging may sink in the muddy waters of Obamacare, complete with a possibility of euthanasia, as a reward for a life well lived. All of that is capped off by the new PC promoted acceptance and legitimization of all religions, even if they provide no clear path to salvation. All that remains is a dismal conclusion that is impossible to miss.
We have become a nation of laws that now endangers our own future.
Yes, I did mean to plant the last sentence in its own lonely little space. Using the law to promote immorality is a sign of the last days. The coming world leader we refer to commonly as the antichrist uses laws, his laws, to completely alter the moral landscape of an unsuspecting world. It has already begun and what is happening here is a precursor to a much larger series of events that will soon re-shape our entire world. The day when we would expect to see crowds of Americans gathering to protest unjust laws and trends has given way to gatherings (Occupy) of those who want only to spread around the wealth. Is this not telling enough?
The complete disregard for all Ten Commandments seems to have arrived as the tenth and final commandment to be trashed, “thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbor’s” (Ex 20: 17) comes just in time to meet the Occupy movement. Perhaps now we can re-write the declaration to read - that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of OPM. (Other people’s money)
That the great last day’s portents are now at the door is disconcerting, but when it is in full swing, according to scripture, will have a fairly long shelf life. The antichrist will rule for seven years. That may seem like a short time but before his rule ends, the world will be bereft of over one third of its population and its nations, cities and infrastructure will be in ruins.
Besides the amorality of both our president and many of our present legislators we have the powerful effect of no apparent intervention by God, godly people or conservatives in general. It is the perfect fulfillment of a word given by a man who God declared to be the wisest man that ever lived. King Solomon declared, “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” (Ecc 8: 11)
