Constitution Day in September - Remember?!
At the sesquicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, Congress adopted a particular beautiful elucidation of our precious American document entitled: "The Story of the Constitution." On Page 183, under the noble title "The Heart and Soul of the Constitution," we find these words:
"We hear it said that the Constitution is faulty because it does not invoke the name of the Deity. I hold that it does more than lean upon Divine strength. It strives to do God's will on earth, as it is done in heaven. Not a line, not a word in the Constitution is in conflict with the Divine will. On the contrary every word and every declaration breathes an ardent desire to pattern the American Nation in accordance with God's holy will."
These words ordained by the United States Congress in 1935. Now consider the political Sadducees who emanate from so-called 'law schools' who claim that our nation is a godless combine of situation ethics, wherein these same gain a handsome living by redefining our liberties. Alas! They fear that we will once more take up our responsibilities as citizens and say to them: "We have read the Constitution, thank you, and we don't need you anymore."
Thomas Jefferson, whom these Sadducee barristers fancy to be a deist, had the following to say about our Constitution:
"Let us then, with courage and confidence, pursue our own federal and republican principles, our attachment to union and representative government. Kindly separated by nature and a wide ocean from the exterminating havoc of one quarter of the globe, too high-minded to endure the degradation of the others, possessing a chosen country, with room enough for our descendants to the thousandth and thousandth generation, entertaining a due sense of our equal right to the use of our own faculties, to the acquisition of our own industry, to honor and confidence from our fellow citizens, resulting not from birth, but from our actions and their sense of them, enlightened by a benign religion, professed indeed and practised in various forms, yet all of them inculcating honesty, truth, temperance, gratitude, and the love of man, acknowledging and adoring an overruling Providence, which, by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here, and to a greater happiness hereafter, with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow citizens, a wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government...And may that infinite Power which rules the destinies of the universe lead our councils to what is best, and give them a favorable issue for your peace and prosperity."
Then Grover Cleveland urges that ..."...secure to all the people of the land the full benefits of the best form of Government ever vouchsafed to man. And let us not trust to human effort alone, but humbly acknowledging the power and goodness of Almighty God, who presides over the destiny of nations and who has at all times been revealed in our country's history, let us invoke His aid and His blessing upon our labors."
These last quotes from a public school textbook, "What is Americanism?" by G. M. Wilson, 1924.
Under questions for the students, No. 5: Is it not a source of great satisfaction to note again and again how sincerely our high public officials invoke divine guidance? Why? End quote.
Why indeed? No wonder the public school students find no "great satisfaction" in anything. When the Judges have ordered God out of the classroom, totally contrary to the intent and action of the authors of the United States Constitution...when they eat the thorns and briars fed them by Darwin, Freud & Marx, and then are left to try to communicate through tattoos or pierce their bodies, and true to the words of the prophet, Amos," their songs have become howlings!"
Samuel Adams declared: "And, brethren and fellow countrymen, if it was ever granted to mortals to trace the designs of Providence, and interpret its manifestations in favor of their cause, we may, with humility of soul, cry out: "Not unto us, not unto us, but to Thy Name be the praise." The confusion of the devices among our enemies, and the rage of the elements against them, have done almost as much towards our success as either our councils or our arms." How about that, Mr. Skeptical Barrister?
And may the above Help be granted to the intimidated, bedraggled Patriot Tea Partier, with the rage of the elements and the Arm of God toward us and against the foes of Christian liberty! And all the people said: "Amen."
