In the United States, many strive with a sense of pride that we are a nation of religious, ethnic, and cultural differences. With many others, this writer values our free devotion for tolerance. Tolerance not because its coerced by religion or state. Sheer tolerance for the aesthetic beauty that is gained through association with other people.
In this land of ours all of that is under siege. Under siege by religious extremists of both the catholic and protestant churches. A movement that has a history here and around the world for the suppression of religion, ethnic, and cultural differences (note yesterdays posting) to their own. They own the congress and the executive branch of government. They acknowledge that they just need one more Scalia / Thomas on the Supreme Court, and then they will own the Supreme Court. Now, in praise of the President, the religious extremists of the catholic and protestant churches have announced that they have their nominee. A guy dubbed “Scalito” because his judicial views parallel those of Justice Scailia. It’s not just Roe that is under siege. It’s every case that comes before the highest court that falls outside of their christian perimeters.
Here are a few lines these religious extremists have released. Bush needs to step up and combat the pervasive culture of death that has gripped the nation. Of course, those extremists are not talking about the six American soldiers who lost their lives in Iraq today. Because of the criminal terrorists war being conducted by this American administration.They are talking about life that does not yet exist. They like to quote Jeremiah 1:5, as a biblical source of authority for their stance. I knew you before you came forth from the womb of your mother. However, Christians who believe in reincarnation use that same authority to support their stance that we are reborn many times. Most Americans believe that Christians have the right to accept as sacred either one of those interpretations. However, most Americans believe that they do not have the right to legislate from the bench of the Supreme Court religious doctrine that will place the nation under christian religious extremism.They refer to senators and others who support a women’s right to control her reproductive life as water carriers and stalking horses for the abortion industry.
We must to preserve the constitutional mandate for the absolute separation of church and state. People of religion in America should be free to practice their religion. If religious extremists favor one interpretation of God for themselves, and their followers that is wonderful in America. But by American constitutional law, they do not have the legal or moral authority to do so for the rest of America. The rest of America happens to be the majority of Americans. Some of whom do not recognize the existence of any God. That too is wonderful because it is also what makes America wonderful.
This is a battle that religious extremists must experience defeat! The democratic party is powerless on its own to derail the goal of the christian religious extremists. Politicians love power, and their power comes from corporate money. They will be careful not offend corporate America. Not that corporate America cares about Roe or the religious rights attempt to Christianize the nation. What corporate America cares about is the defeat of any cases before the court that might effect capitalism in an adverse manner. Which is as you know from yesterdays posting, is the third leg of the conglomerate of Americanism. That has in the past has been so successful around the world. Which also is the needle in the hay stack that will not allow Democrats to do anything put make some loud noise when it comes nominee Alito’s senate confirmation hearing. So the people outside of congress must step up and really pressure the democrats to defeat the nomination of Samuel A. Alito. Not only is liberty at risk which encompasses far more than Roe. But also, the aesthetic beauty of differences from the christian religious extremists perspective.
