Supreme Court Rulings

I watched the news with respect to the celebration of Martin Luther King's, "I've Got a Dream" Speech this week and one of the Major networks also reflected on a Rabbi's speech that same day who said that the worst thing that we do when injustice is happening is to be 'silent." No, it has been many decades since the Supreme Court of this land violated the Constitution with vote to an prayer in Schools and the subsequent court rulings banning the public display of Christian symbols on public lands. Now the first amendment says in so many words that Congress cannot make any laws pursuant to the establishment of religion, nor can Congress make any laws limiting the free expression there of. The Christian church has been visibly silent on this matter since this violation of the Constitution has taken place, which in my mind is a crime and the Justices who voted for it, if they are still on the bench should be impeached. The Supreme Court action violated the Constitution in two ways. First they voted to let Ms. O'Hare's religion, Atheism become the law of the land and secondly they have taken away our right as Christians to express our faith anywhere in the land, public or private property. I would truly be interested in knowing if there are folks who agree with me on this issue and if there is enough, maybe we could begin a movement to pass a new amendment to the Constitution making it possible to remove Justices who violate the Constitution in any way shape or manner.

I have read a lot of the blogs since I joined this site a day or two ago, and have posted two that I believe would generate some lively discussion, but again as I said above, it seems that the church, or at least a great number of those of the church family are still locked in the silent mode. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, we cannot afford to continue to be silent. We cannot continue to allow the liberal agenda to rule the preaching of the gospel of salvation through the grace of God, made known to humanity through the life, death and resurrection of his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. If we continue to remain silent, when the judgment day comes we are likely to be among those whom Jesus says, depart from me for I never knew you. If we don't stand up for Jesus and acknowledge him in every way, he will not acknowledge us when we meet him at the door of the kingdom. Let's pray for a revival. amen

The celebration of Martin Luther King's life is a federal holiday I have come to appreciate more the older I get. Dr. King was a great American with courage who literally put his life on the line for an idea of freedom and equality for all races. He like many other revolutionaries was murdered because he posed such a threat to the establishment. He believed in this idea so much that he encouraged civil disobedience which ultimately meant breaking laws and sometimes being arrested.

Thanks amerxp for your comments. I agree, Martin Luther King was a great American and was killed because he stood up for justice and equality. He is a classic example of someone who refused to be silent in the face of injustice and hatred that permeated this land. Now, again, I refer to the Supreme Court ruling banning prayers in schools and other public events. Since that ruling this country has seen more than just small increase in the violent acts such as the school killings, mass murders, ugly rapes of women, etc. the list could go on for a long time. However, I still advocate a revival of the true Spirit of the Christian ethic and Spirit which is a powerful tool to transform the world more surely than all of the guns, bombs, and other killing devices of war.

The silence by the Christian Community on this matter is overwhelming. For the life of me, I cannot understand why people are so silent about their right to free expression of their faith has been curbed by a Supreme Court that is supposed to uphold the Constitution not defile it with their liberal agendas. I pray daily that God's Spirit will surely come with full power and conviction to melt the hearts of the luke warm believers and move them to a boldness to declare that God is still Supreme and that we need to be free to share our faith in the Court rooms, in the schools, on the athletic fields, and in the Town meetings of this land. God will not be mocked for ever and the time is coming, I believe when we will pay for our infaithfulness.
