So governments have been developing a new doctrine, claiming for themselves the authority to “balance rights” against each other, deciding winners and losers. Government will decide whose rights matter on any given day. Like, yesterday we had free speech and today we don’t, because today someone else’s rights are more important than ours.
They do not intend for us to be free and will go to almost any lengths to enslave us. Don’t ask me why. It’s one of those Original Sin things. May God deliver us out of their hands.
There are millions of public-schooled noddies out there, potential Democrat voters all, who could look at that document up there all day and couldn’t tell you what it is if their lives depended on it.
It’s the Declaration of Independence; and it needs to be proclaimed and reaffirmed.
No, I’m not doing any nooze today. Our country’s birth, that’s the news! “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…” That’s the news.
What? We annihilated Hitler and Tojo, only to be conquered by the New York Times? We watched the Soviet Union slide into oblivion–and Nancy Pelosi’s gonna push us after them?
Be faithful to God, and He will be faithful to us.
The dangers we are in today are all of our own making; but only repent, and God will deliver us.
To this very day our fallen, sinful, deluded world rejects and fights against the whole idea of there even being a Creator, much less a Creator who endows His created beings with inalienable rights. It’s poison to them; but salvation to us. They would swallow us whole; but He has redeemed us with the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son.
For our sins we have the New York Times, the teachers’ unions, and transgender.
But our hope is in the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
The order states that now students may pray alone or in groups during lunch or other free periods.
It also eliminates a rule requiring religious groups to refer clients to “alternative organizations on request.” What that does is rein in the government’s insistence on telling you what you must say in certain circumstances, even if it goes against your conscience. Liberals love telling you what you must say, even while they compile long lists of things you can’t say.
Finally, the order will make it easier for religious groups to access federal grant programs.
Bear in mind that the president is not “giving” us anything that we don’t already have. We belong to God, who has endowed us with certain inalienable rights. What President Trump has done is to push back against humanists’ long campaign to restrict religious speech and practice. Which we should never have let them do in the first place.
He has also struck a blow against the unspoken but plainly communicated proposition that America’s state religion is secular humanism (which is a nice name for atheism).
Far Left Crazy has wailed and gnashed its teeth over this. Expect court cases to follow.
A small-town newspaper was posting the Declaration of Independence, piece by piece, a day at a time, until Facebook scrubbed the last post–which was the Declaration’s charges against King George III, which included the charge of inciting “merciless Indian savages” of making war on Colonial civilians–quite a sore point in 1776.
Facebook’s censorship was executed by its computer algorithms, an exercise in Artificial Mindlessness. The robots couldn’t appreciate the historical context of Thomas Jefferson’s statement.
After a day of public protests and complaints, Facebook caved and restored the post.
The robots have the excuse of being mindless. Liberals, who say such things on purpose, don’t. If I only had a nickel for every leftid who called the Declaration of Independence “hate speech,” I could buy Facebook and adjust its attitude.
They can’t even sort of like America on the Fourth of July.
Just another bit of that Great Blue Wave that’s supposed to sweep these anti-American schmendricks back into power in November.
According to the Declaration of Independence, we are endowed by our Creator with inalienable rights. That means our rights come from God and may not be taken away by man.
This idea has never been very popular with ruling classes anywhere.
In the discussion leading up to the Supreme Court’s hearing of Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Human Rights Commission, in which the government claims the power to dictate the content of works of art, a wicked and pernicious idea has been seeping in from Canada–the notion that the government is here “to balance rights.”
What does that mean? Well, say its proponents, very often, the rights of two or more groups–and right there they’re slipping it in that groups have rights, as opposed to individuals: a highly dubious point–may conflict; and when they do, it’s up to the government to decide which group’s rights must prevail.
Ta-dah! Presto! As if by magic, our rights are removed from our Creator’s province and have suddenly become very alienable indeed, with the government deciding from day to day, case to case, who has what rights at any given moment. First they swallow up individual rights in amorphous rights possessed by groups which may or may not be real–but all individuals are real–and then they demonstrate that the rights you had yesterday, you might not have today: it all depends on what the government decides, as it “balances” your rights against someone else’s. Governments do love to decide who wins and who loses.
Understanding the inherent evil of governments, a natural consequence of Original Sin, our country’s founders–uniquely!–did everything they could to limit the power of the government and hem it in with laws, checks, and balances.
Their vision has never been popular with ruling classes anywhere.
So now the United States Supreme Court is girding up its loins to say, “Well, sure, you have religious freedom, you have artistic freedom–except when gays feel offended by your freedom, in which case you don’t have it anymore.”
Pray hard, and entreat the Lord to save our country.
He made this grotesque remark in an interview with Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, in which he tried to overthrow Moore’s argument that marriage is ordained by God to consist of a man and a woman. Judge Moore is a great man. Chris, the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo–who famously postulated that a Christian politician need not, in his public policy, be guided by Christian morality–is a noozie, which these days is a shameful thing to be. He is also an ignoramus, running straight up against Thomas Jefferson: who wrote, in The Declaration of Independence,
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…
“Inalienable,” for those who can’t do adult crossword puzzles, means not for sale, cannot be given away, cannot be taken away: these are rights that are inherent in our status as human beings.
I leave it to you whether this noozie is a pagan. But if he isn’t, I daresay there’s something very deficient in his grasp of Christian doctrine.
What man can give, man can take away. The noozies are comfortable with that now because their favorite progs and libs control the state. They ought to bear in mind Plutarch’s observation that tyranny is a nice, high perch, but there’s no safe way down from it.
