The Supreme Court in the Age of Relativism

According to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, Relativism is “The belief that different things are true, right, etc., for different people or at different times.” Another tenant of Relativism is the shifting meaning of words, in other words, words no longer hold meaning constant, they can mean one thing one day and another the next in the same context or statement. In such a world, not only is everything relative it is also meaningless, but when this standard is applied to the law, then the law also becomes lawless.

Are all Laws Necessary?

If anyone were to take the time to read the Federal Register of Laws, in which all laws passed by Congress are recorded since its first session in 1789, and they read an average of 700 pages per week, it would take them over 25,000 years to read them all.

Is Roe v Wade the Law of the Land?

Since the Supreme Court passed down their landmark Roe v Wade opinion on January 22, 1973, approximately one and a half million unborn children have been sentenced to death each year in America. People who campaign for legalizing the murder of the unborn frequently use the slogan “Roe v Wade is the law of the land,” but this is contrary to what the supreme law of the Land actually says. Article I Section 1 Clause 1 of the US Constitution states, “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
