What Constitution Day Really Celebrates

Monday was Constitution Day, but if our Founding Fathers looked at the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court over the last 80 years and the servile reactions of Congress and the states to those rulings, they would surely think we had scrapped their Constitution.

In a way, we have. In 1938, the Court said the Constitution’s words would no longer be understood in terms of a transcendent moral law, which allowed the Court to deconstruct marriage. But because the Supreme Court had earlier said that its interpretation of the Constitution was binding and must be uncritically accepted as law by everyone, the judicial imposition of same-sex marriage on the states was met by a shrug.

We still celebrate our Constitution, but it’s the one rewritten by the U.S. Supreme Court, not the one written by our Founding Founders.

Reality TV and the Kavanaugh Hearings

The Senate hearings related to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court proved to be a sicker version of television viewing than today’s unrelenting stream of reality shows.

What should have been a serious civil proceeding was dominated by loudmouthed, disruptive protestors, encouraged in their boorish behavior by those in the U.S. Senate who are more like Jerry Springer wannabes than senators.

This spectacle brings to mind Proverbs 29:9, “If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.”

How true. The fool not only has nothing worthy to say, but he or she distracts and disrupts people from being able to hear that which needs to be heard.

The only thing worse than this kind of fool is one who tolerates such foolishness.

‘Dragging’ Gender Theory to a Library Near You

The latest educational fad arrived in Clarksville, Tennessee, last week. The fad? Bringing drag queens to public libraries, as happened in Clarksville, and in some states, into the classroom.

It’s called the “Drag Queen Story Hour,” and it targets children 3 to 8 years of age. Its purpose is to “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and give kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”

Proponents also want public libraries and the libraries in our public schools to have gender-themed books. So, parents be on the lookout for books like Jacob’s New Dress and Red: A Crayon’s Story.

We may teach our children and grandchildren that they are made in the image of God, but this new fad is sure to make that image only a meaningless blur.

The Supreme Court Battle That Needs to Be Waged

On September 4, hearings will begin on Brett Kavanaugh’ s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

His confirmation could provide a majority on the court with a conservative judicial approach to the Constitution that might reign in the abuses of power that produced abortion on demand and same-sex “marriage.”

Already, the Human Rights Campaign is campaigning against his confirmation and, last week, Planned Parenthood and others launched a six-figure advertising campaign against him. These efforts will focus on moderate Republicans and Democrats.

And though conservative organizations will push back, the unseen battle is between spiritual principalities and powers. That means the prayers of Christians may play the really decisive role, so let’s implore the God of heaven for a justice who might help overturn the moral atrocities already written into our Constitution and prevent new ones.
