The Supreme Court has been legislating from the bench for the past 50+ years, unlawfully and unconstitutionally stepping outside of their scope of power. This branch has become a treacherous bureaucracy, which grows more corrupt day-by-day, robed in black, and giving the impression that they are a law unto themselves, when in fact they are not!
In June 2011, the Supreme Court struck down a California law that would have banned selling “violent” video games to children, stating the games are protected under “free speech.”
Some of these games teach kids to kill cops, shoot up schools, and to kill other students while being rewarded in hell for their crimes. There are also games that teach kids to steal cars, rape women, and even shoot John F. Kennedy for a chance to win a $10,000.00 prize. And America wonders why we have such a high crime rate.
“Liberty is the right to do what the law permits,” said Charles Montesquieu. Yet in America today, the present Supreme Court calls it freedom of speech to allow kids to learn how to break the very laws the Court should be enforcing.
It is government’s purpose to “restrain men from sin” (transgression of God’s Law; 1 John 3:4), not to encourage it. Crime should be deterred, not encouraged or advocated.
In 1946 a juvenile delinquent appeared before Judge Ruegemer from St. Cloud, MN because the youth had struck and seriously injured another man while driving an automobile. After ordering a background check, he found out that the youth came from a troubled home.
The judge opted to suspend the juvenile’s sentence, provided that he learned and lived by the Ten Commandments and reported regularly to his probation officer.
When the youth explained he didn’t know what the Ten Commandments were, the judge made arrangements for a pastor to teach him about them. From this experience Judge Ruegemer realized that American youth needed the moral guidance provided by the Ten Commandments. He then began a movement to place monuments displaying the Commandments in thousands of courtrooms, schools, and parks across the nation.
In 1980 the Supreme Court stated the following in Stone v. Graham, “If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, … it will be to meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments. This is not a permissible state objective.”
What?! The Court doesn’t want children to obey the Ten Commandments, which teaches them not to kill, steal, dishonor their parents, lie, etc.?
Parents, who have a moral and natural obligation to be the first line of defense, should not allow their children to play violent video games no matter who said it was okay. If they did so, the Court wouldn’t even consider such a ridiculous notion!
You see, we can teach what we know, but we can only reproduce what we are. What we have taught the youth is really what the last four generations have acted out in their lifestyles. Sadly, the youth are emulating the older generation’s example in advocating crime. Jesus said, “wisdom is justified of all her children” (Luke 7:35). This is a truth no man can deny.
Interestingly enough, over the head of the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. there is a huge engraving of Moses with the Ten Commandments in his hands. The inscription under Moses states, “Justice the guardian of liberty.” Our founders have laid in stone a truth that reproves those who sit in the Supreme Court chambers this day. The judges’ sole purpose was to rule according to law, which is a fixed principle laid out for all of mankind by Almighty God, the Judge of all the earth (Ex. 18:21).
America, we can no longer allow corrupt judges to usurp their authority and legislate their opinions from the bench.
A strong word of advice to the judges who are an extension of “We the People” can be found in Psalm 2:10-12: “Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.”
It would do us all well to submit to the One who holds all power in His hands.
