Self-ev­i­dent truths ab­sent

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - LARRY VOLKENING Hous­ton

Our na­tion was formed by men who pro­claimed the ex­is­tence of self-ev­i­dent truths as their im­pelling rea­son for form­ing a new coun­try. Today we have be­come baf­fled by the fol­low­ing: which re­stroom an in­di­vid­ual should en­ter, which sexes should be present in a mar­riage, whether a hu­man fe­tus con­sti­tutes a hu­man life, and whether uni­ver­sity stu­dents be pro­vided ‘safe ar­eas’ free from per­sonal views in op­po­si­tion to their own.

Much of this na­tion has lost even the com­pre­hen­sion of self-ev­i­dent truths eas­ily un­der­stood by a six-year-old. The re­jec­tion of the ob­serv­able fact that nei­ther our Found­ing Fa­thers nor our Con­sti­tu­tion de­clared a sep­a­ra­tion of church and state has opened wide the spigot of sec­u­lar fool­ish­ness.

We are a na­tion no longer of self-ev­i­dent truths sup­plied by God, but of self-pro­claimed truths sup­plied by self-grat­i­fy­ing men. The first built a great na­tion, but the cur­rent is de­liv­er­ing on an Obama prom­ise to fun­da­men­tally change Amer­ica.
