Recent remarks by several presidential candidates from both major political parties shows clearly that America no longer understands what our Constitution and the Bill of Rights stand for. Hearing them say, “it’s the law,” or “it’s the law of the land,” makes some of us almost sick to our stomachs.
The fact is that the Judicial Branch of our government has shredded those two great documents and substituted some so-called rights that are definitely not anywhere to be found in those precious documents.
Now when politicians say, “We are supposed to defend the Constitution,” they don’t mean the original documents, they mean whatever the Federal Justices have ruled on regardless of how ungodly those decisions were. And if you have the Internet, and want to see how ungodly things are, look up “Baby Malachi” on any of the search engines. Every American owes it to humanity to do that! And this includes looking at the once dismembered body of Baby Malachi.
So where are the “checks and balances,” America? How did we not insist that our representatives and senators in the Legislative Branch take action and impeach the ungodly judges who decided to throw God out of our schools and all government places under their new invention of “separation of church and state?” Or when they voted to give women the right to kill their unborn babies, although God says, “Thou shall not kill?” Or the latest decision from the Supreme Court giving same-sex couples the right to marry? The Court made that latest decision regardless of the fact that God considers sex between two males, or sex between two females, evil, wicked and a grievous sin worthy of death.
A scene of God’s Ten Commandments Monument being hoisted up, in the middle of the night, to be removed from the grounds of an Oklahoman courthouse, or it might have been the State Capitol grounds, is deeply etched in my mind. America has abandoned God!

” The Court made that latest decision regardless of the fact that God considers sex between two males, or sex between two females, evil, wicked and a grievous sin worthy of death.”
No, YOUR god considers it a sin worthy of death. We have freedom of religion in this country, and other people’s gods have different opinions.
If you want to live in a country where, say, gays are executed because the government’s god says to kill them, there are still a few theocracies you can find in the world — I think all those governments are terrible.
