Legislating Morality PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. John E. Russell Sr   

Law is the result of codifying and writing morality and ethics for the protection and welfare of people. Therefore, every statute is the legislation of morality and every statute is either Biblically based or arbitrarily based.

United States law was originally based on Biblical morality. Secular humanism introduced an arbitrary factor, which depends on the subjective state of mind of the legislators at a particular time. Our statutes and judicial decisions are now based on a "curious mixture" of Judeo-Christian and immoral beliefs.

Secular humanists have become religious nihilists. They are attempting to destroy the Judeo-Christian basis of our society and replace it with an arbitrary basis. Some have called humanistic law, "social law," while others have described it as originating in "politically correct" thought, which is a consensus of radical left thinkers at a particular time. (Atheist John Dewey, the author of Humanist Manifesto I, rejected absolute moral values and taught that moral values and ethics should be based on a consensus of society.)

Humanistic thought is moving further and further away from the truth. One can see a parallel of humanists with Nazi socialists. The metaphysics of the radical left (secular humanists) and the radical right (Nazis) are the same. Even a superficial study reveals a use of the same techniques and a movement toward immoral law.

Hitler went about attempting to build a "super race' by murdering people whom he defined as "inferior" and breeding human beings like cattle. We have been doing some of the same evil things in the United States since the 1970s. We have defined the preborn as non-human. The handicapped newborn have been defined as those having lives not worth living. Newborn female babies are being killed in some parts of the world. (Infanticide was one of evils of Greece when it was in decline.) Old and sick people have been murdered here in the United States for some time without any criminal charges brought against the murderers. Unless there is a positive change in the U S, the future may find us defining such classes of people as the handicapped, people on welfare, old people and the mentally ill as "useless eaters." People who are not "Politically Correct," may be declared inferior and not worthy to live. Euthanasia is still allowed in the USA.

A "pluralistic" society will not work. All points of view cannot be treated as equal. Every philosophy and religion necessarily clashes with others. Christianity has been extremely tolerant of other religions and has allowed a chief antagonist, Secular Humanism, to grow in strength. We have allowed an extremely aggressive religion—Islam—to flourish in the USA. Islam will destroy a nation if left unchecked. Only one religion can be in control—the United States must make a decision. Our nation and constitution was based on Christianity. If Secular Humanism wins, then we all lose.

But if serving the lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. . . . but as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15, NIV
