By passing a majority opinion that married same-sex couples are entitled to federal benefits, the Supreme Court has once again stepped outside the realm of original intent in interpreting the Constitution. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community have always possessed the same rights as every citizen in the United States, hence there is no such thing as “gay rights”.
Former Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta and the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey have attempted to erase one of the last distinctions between men and women by “allowing” women to serve in combat units. Panetta stated, “Allowing women to serve in combat roles will strengthen the U.S. military’s ability to win wars.”
In spite of Panetta’s attempt to fabricate the truth, women in combat roles do not add anything to a nation’s defense in terms of combat effectiveness. As a rule, women have not played a major part in combat throughout world history for the same reason they do not play professional football; they do not perform as well as men in these roles. Sadly, one need only look at domestic abuse cases to see that in general, women are physically weaker than men.
In the entire later half of the 20th century, Christianity has been under attack in America. Some of these attacks have manifested themselves as restrictions on the display of the Ten Commandments in schools and other public places, erecting Christian crosses on public property in memory of lost loved ones, displaying nativity scenes during the Christmas season, or individual public expressions of Christianity such as school teachers giving a “glance at inspirational Bible verses between classes.”
In each case of public displays of Christianity, the alleged law-breakers have the same things in common: they are not Congress, they are not making a law, they are not establishing a religion, and they are not restricting the free exercise of religion. To the contrary, they are all doing exactly what the First Amendment protects their right to do.
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.”
