The SCOTUS Origins of Cultural Breakdown

A good friend of mine listed the following reasons why the cultural decay is eating up the fabric of American public life at this time.

I will offer some points to affirm, counter, or add any other concerns I may have about his comments, but I do submit readily that the speedy abandonment of this country's Judeo-Christian heritage is hastening the academic, economic, and moral/cultural decline in our country, now made worse because of homosexual marriage, and the attending charge that any state refusing to grant same-sex marriage licenses are thus violating the Constitution.

The recent shameful history of the U.S. Supreme Court, and how the U.S. Supreme Court has FAILED the American people and led this country into a steep downward moral spiral over the past 50 years:

(1. (1962) The teaching of God or the mention of God's Name or prayer to the God of the Bible was removed from the U.S. public school classrooms and made illegal (Engel vs, Vitale, 1962). The result? Public education classrooms degenerating into godless hellholes of violence, disrespect, unruliness, and lack of education. Millions of children stripped of the knowledge of God from an early age. God was removed from the public classroom, and Harry Potter, witchcraft and the New Age was invited in His place.

The good new is that indeed young men and women can read the Bible in their classrooms. Students can have Christian clubs and meetings, but the school cannot officially recognize or endorse the meeting.

(2. (1964) the removal of virtually all legal or community bans in the United States against the public display of pornography. Justice Potter Stewart, in Jacobellis vs. Ohio, could provide, as his 'litmus test' as to what constituted "pornography" only the vague phrase, ":I know it when I see it". Based upon this ridiculous and totally subjective (and un-enforceable) remark by a Supreme Court Justice, the floodgates were opened for the public display of nudity and sex in this country, de-sensitizing the minds and hearts of the young over the past 50 years.

(3. (1973) The nationwide legalization of abortion in the Roe vs. Wade decision, As a result of one Supreme Court decision (based upon faulty legal logic) 55 MILLION BABIES have been aborted in this country, cheapening the value of life and deadening the consciences of millions.

Abortion is indeed a tragic thing, and should only have been allowed in the most extreme and thus limited of circumstances. The good news is that more people are realizing that life does begin at conception. Even atheists are now pro-life because science and technology have affirmed the complex wonders of a living person within his or her mother's womb.

(4. (2015) On June 26, the Supreme Court issues a 5-4 decision legalizing "marriage" between same sex couples, thus attempting to re-define the meaning of a relationship that God Himself established. The Supreme Court of the United States was given the God-given mandate to be the 'gate keepers' of this society to protect the innocent and the young from the wolves and predators of sin within the society. Instead, the Supreme Court has flung the gates WIDE OPEN and now the wolves are feasting freely upon the sheep. Shame on them.

I concur with putting "marriage" in quotation marks. Marriage cannot be define but as "one man and one woman". Any other construct makes a mockery of the institution.

If anyone differs or refuses to recognize the role of a Creator in the grand designs of our Constitution and by extension political culture, then look no further than the Preamble:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,[note 1] promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

One key word stands out: "Blessings".

Liberty is a blessing, and thus comes from a Blesser. There can be no liberty apart from Someone who grants this liberty. Without a Godly culture, there is fear, conformity, and tyranny.
