Cain and Able at the Capitol? (February 22, 2017)


Last week the chaos we’ve seen in other states descended on Tennessee’s Capitol. Yelling by LGBT activists shut down a press conference by legislators trying to discuss their legislation regarding bathroom privacy. State troopers just stood and watched.

Legislative leaders act paralyzed and rightfully so. Since we threw God out of civil government, there is no legitimate basis for anyone in government to demand that demonstrators be peaceable. On what basis can anyone say to someone else, “You can’t do that. Stop!” without the other saying, “Says who?”

Yale law professor Arthur Leff once said that without God as a ground for authority our “ruling model. . . appears to be … Cain and Abel. . . God help us.”

He was right. Cain is showing up everywhere, even at our state Capitol. God help us, indeed.
