Judge Moore: Congress does something right

You may have missed the news about it, but in the week following the 4th of July weekend, the Senate and the House did something right: both houses of Congress ordered (http://www NULL.google NULL.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5htxe4DfXCO-Usm3nLfXgWZmLiYTQD99EEU200) the Architect of the Capitol to engrave “In God We Trust” (http://www NULL.visitthecapitol NULL.gov/For%20the%20Press/Press%20Materials/Photograph%20Downloads/Exterior/)and the Pledge in prominent places at the entrance to the new Capitol Visitor Center (http://www NULL.visitthecapitol NULL.gov/) (left) in Washington, D.C.  Despite a whopping $621 million pricetag for the 3-story underground facility, the Center conspicuously lacked recognitions of our religious heritage, which suited the atheists just fine.

Following the Congress’s order, the anti-constitutionally named Freedom From Religion Foundation continued their slash-and-burn policy of opposing public acknowledgments of God last week by suing in a Wisconsin federal court (http://www NULL.ffrf NULL.org/news/2009/ayers NULL.php) to stop the display of the National Motto and the Pledge.  No good deed goes unpunished in federal courts, after all.

While the federal court has not had a chance to decide that case, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals last week upheld a court order forbidding Gideons International from giving away Bibles to 5th grade students at South Iron R-1 School District near St. Louis, MO. (Opinion here: Roark v. South Iron (http://www NULL.ca8 NULL.uscourts NULL.gov/opns/opFrame NULL.html).) The Foundation for Moral Law explained to the court in a legal brief (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/PDF/Roark_v NULL._South_Iron_R-1_Sch NULL._Dist NULL.,_Amicus_brief_by_FML_Bibles_in_school NULL.pdf) that the First Amendment does not prohibit the distribution of Bibles in public school, but the court ignored the Constitution and decided that the school was appearing to “endorse religion” by allowing the students to be offered Bibles in class.

Judge Roy Moore addresses this continued battle for the right to acknowledge God, whether in D.C. or in Missouri schools, in his column this week, Congress does something right (http://www NULL.wnd NULL.com/index NULL.php?fa=PAGE NULL.view&pageId=104626).

    When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which Religion or the Bible; the Laws of Nature and of Natures God entitled them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

    The making of our United States Constitution.

    Thomas Jefferson stated in his autobiography,”This Convention met at Philadelphia on the 25th of May 1787. It sat with closed doors and kept all it proceedings secret, until it’s dissouution on the 17 of September, when the results of their labors were published all together. I received a copy ealy in November, and read and comtemplated it’s provisions with great satisfaction. As not a member of the Convention however, nor probably a single citizen of the Union, had approved it in all its Freedom of the person under the Uninterrupted Protection of the Habeas corpus, & trial by jury in civil as well as in criminal cases Excited my jealousy: and the re-eligibility of the President for life, I quite Disapproved. I expressed freely in my letters to my friends, and most particularly to Mr. Madison & General Washington, my approbations and objectives. How the GOOD should be secured, and the ILL brought to rights was the difficulity. To refer it back to a new Convention might endager the loss of the whole. My first idea was that the 9 states first acting should accept it unconditionally, and thus secure what in it was good, and that the 4. last should accept on the previous condition that certain Amendments should be agreed to, but a better course was devised of accepting the whole and Trusting that the Good Sense & Honest Intentions of our citizens would make the Alterations which should be deemed necessary. Accordingly all excepted, 6 with Objection, and 7 with recommendations of specifified amendments. Those Respecting the press, Religion, & juries, with several others, of Great Value, were accordingly made, but the Habeas corpus was left to the the discretion of Congress, and the amendment against the re-eligibility of the President was not proposed by that body.”

    Did Thomas Jefferson set up a Wall of Seperation between government and Religion or was it He who felt that Congress shall make no LAW respecting an establishment of Religion or the free exercise thereof? Read it for yourselves, these are his words. It was he who realized that Religion was of Great Value to our country and it was he who who realized that the Good should be SECURED, and the ILL brought to rights.

    The Powers of the Earth is not an Equal Station to Natures Laws and Natures God. The Powers of the Earth are trying to remove the Religious Band that is intertwined with the Political Band but it hasn’t happened yet. That Religious Band cant be broken–you see it was preserved forever so it would never break or separate. It was the Powers of the Earth that tried to erect that Wall.
