Life Changing Scotus Decisions
by Pete Ketcham
The Supreme Court of The United States (SCOTUS) has had a far greater impact on the moral course of this nation, than I believe most of us are aware of. I have attributed the beginning of our moral decline solely to the actions of the 60’s baby boomer generation as they progressively gained political power, but failed to fully realize how solidly the SCOTUS decisions locked that power into place. A decision by the SCOTUS is almost impossible to reverse, and becomes a beacon of guidance for the philosophy of the entire nation. All fifty states must abide by these decisions which impact the life of every US citizen. It is somewhat mind boggling, how nine politically connected lawyers, appointed by one man (POTUS) are able to determine how the entire 325 million citizens of this nation will conduct their lives.
For example, the demise of christian biblical principles, which had been the guiding underpinnings of the American education system began in 1948, with the following US Supreme Court decisions erroneously based on the establishment clause of the first amendment, which prohibits the government from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” :
1948: No religious instruction permitted in schools.
1962: No prayer permitted in school.
1963: No Bibles can be distributed in schools.
1985: No meditation permitted during school hours.
1992: No invocation or benediction at graduation ceremonies.
1995: No prayer at school sporting events.
As you can see, SCOTUS has literally wiped out any christian influence in our education system after 200 plus years of it being the moral foundation of national education.
In addition to the preceding SCOTUS school decisions, the following are more of the same harmful life changing SCOTUS decisions:
1857: The Dred Scott decision affirmed that black people were not citizens, and basically were considered as property. This brainless prejudicial decision did not settle any slavery issue, but actually helped lead the nation into a bloody civil war four years later.
1973: Roe Vs Wade, making abortion (the killing of unborn babies) during the first trimester, legal throughout the entire nation.
1992: Through a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood, SCOTUS declared that abortion was legal through the entire pregnancy period. As we now know, this decision facilitated Planned Parenthood’s ability to sell aborted baby parts.
2015: Same sex marriage was made legal as SCOTUS ruled that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to same-sex couples by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. This insane ruling overturned thousands of years of cultural norm that marriage was between a man and a woman. Not only that, but this decision has created nationwide strife, perversion, and bitterness. It has no more settled the marriage issue than the Dred Scott decision settled the issue of slavery. This ruling will not stand indefinitely, as it flies in the face of nature, God’s law, and plain common sense.
As we review these past SCOTUS decisions, it becomes clearly evident that as our nation declined in cultural values and morals (brought on by the progressive liberal left), the nine black robes of the SCOTUS have facilitated this decline by their inane irreversible decisions that have become the “law of the land.”
I realize that there needs to be a final authority concerning the interpretation of our constitutional laws, but these nine judges should not be appointed for life by one man, the president, (even though they do have to be confirmed by congress). They should be elected by the public to a four or six year term, and limited to two terms. But, as it now stands these nine lawyers (judges) are entitled to maintain their position of power for life, are practically immune to impeachment, and are able to project their political bias into everyone of their decisions with impunity.
Somehow, someway, we need to bring this rogue judicial branch of our government back under control, including the lower courts.
