The Constitution of the United States is the greatest uninspired document that has ever been written by mere human beings. For two and a half centuries it has guided the American people very well and has been amended fewer than thirty times. This document has made us the most unique nation on the face of the earth, with our people enjoying more freedoms than the people of any other nation on God’s footstool. Every political officer of any import at all, swears to uphold the Constitution of the US. That is one reason why in 2003, many Americans were shocked to hear one of the justices of the United States Supreme Court, the court whose duty it is to interpret the Constitution as well as to uphold it, make the statement that the Court had begun to look to international law to guide their decisions. Speaking of the court, as well as most other liberal politicians in America, she said, “Our island or one-ranger mentality is beginning to change,” then added that justices “are becoming more open to comparative and international law perspectives.” Again, we emphasize that this came from a woman who has sworn before Almighty God to uphold the Constitution of the United States! Where does that great document give these justices permission to make decisions on behalf of the American people based on international law perspectives? The reason we are seeing so many out and out crazy decisions come out of Federal courts at every level is because they have long since stopped consulting the Constitution and have begun looking to international law, which has no business in the running of this nation.
Like so many religious deconstructionists who are looking outside the Bible for what they call theology, these deconstructionist justices have begun looking outside the document that guides our nation to laws that have nothing to do with our nation. We doubt not the founding fathers are spinning in their graves. This means that the Constitution is no longer the supreme law of the land, but the laws of France, Britain or some other country, or collection of countries have become the supreme laws of America. This portends great danger for our future, and unless it is reversed it will destroy our nation. Why are Americans so timid about being Americans and the role we play in the world? We support more than half the world; we are the most generous and liberal nation on earth. Hundreds of millions of people would starve to death in a fortnight if the US dropped its support of them. Yet, we have allowed other nations, the United Nations and now our own Supreme Court to abuse us by deciding what is best for us based, not on our own masterful and envied law, but on the weak laws of the international community.
Other nations in the world have abortion rights and since 1973, so have we. These rights did not come from the 14th Amendment to the Constitution as Justice Harry Blackmun announced to the nation. Why do we say that? Because you can read that amendment a thousand times and there is no “right to privacy” in it! Blackmun made his decision, not based on what the Constitution says, but on the basis of what his wife and daughter thought, as Sally Blackmun revealed to Women's eNews. She also revealed that her advice to her father was based on the fact that she had become pregnant out of wedlock while a sophomore at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Friends, laws of other nations allow for euthanasia, same gender marriage and a host of other things. We need to interpret the Constitution the same way we need to interpret the Bible, that is, according to what it says, not according to what someone says it says, or wants it to say. Postmodern deconstructionism is a great enemy to God, the Bible, common sense, yes, and the Constitution of the United States. Everything worth anything to our way of life will become fair game to the deconstructionists until and unless we say, “enough is enough” to both the “clergy” and the politicians!
