Exodus 20:1-2 “And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”
Writing for the minority in the Stone v. Graham decision (see the previous post), Justice Rehnquist reasoned:
“The Establishment Clause does not require that the public sector be insulated from all things which may have a religious significance or origin.”
Additionally, Justice Rehnquist argued the following:
“The Ten Commandments have had a significant impact on the development of secular legal codes of the Western World.”
Yet, in an attempt to insulate the public sector from all things that have religious significance, the Supreme Court removed from our view the entire basis of Western law. Without such a foundation, it is no surprise that we now hopelessly flounder as a society.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICA WOULD RETURN TO ITS BIBLICAL FOUNDATION. Without being affixed to our original foundation, we drift away from stability and towards bondage. We do so because of our inappropriate insulation from the very truths that have had a significant impact on our entire society.
