Time to turn back

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

There is some­thing mag­i­cal and re­mark­able about Amer­ica, a Judeo-Chris­tian so­ci­ety that be­came the most pow­er­ful na­tion in the his­tory of the world. There is also some­thing re­mark­able about the fact that one man, Supreme Court Jus­tice Hugo Black, with his 1947 Everson vs. Board of Ed­u­ca­tion high court rul­ing, set into mo­tion the death of that na­tion.

Evok­ing a le­gal lie, Sep­a­ra­tion of Church and State (which ap­pears nowhere in the Con­sti­tu­tion), Jus­tice Black clearly vi­o­lated the First Amend­ment, which pro­hibits Congress from es­tab­lish­ing a re­li­gion, but does not pro­hibit the state from es­tab­lish­ing a re­li­gion. He ef­fec­tively out­lawed Amer­ica’s re­li­gious free­dom by as­sas­si­nat­ing the author­ity of the Con­sti­tu­tion, which ex­pressly al­lowed Chris­tian­ity as the state re­li­gion be­cause then, as now, nearly all U.S. cit­i­zens were Chris­tians and “ma­jor­ity ruled” not only in the Supreme Court, but also in the in­di­vid­ual states.

Jus­tice Hugo Black changed all that, and now the only hope for Amer­ica to sur­vive the as­sault of for­eign pow­ers who hate this coun­try would be for the cur­rent Supreme Court to re­visit and re­verse Everson vs. Board of Ed­u­ca­tion, thereby al­low­ing the Bi­ble, prayer and the Ten Com­mand­ments to re­turn to the schools of Amer­ica. Then the na­tion’s school­child­ren, once again em­pow­ered by a Judeo-Chris­tian so­ci­ety, would suc­cess­fully ward off the con­cen­tra­tion camps, tor­ture cham­bers and deaths that come with the usual for­eign takeovers.
