Respect the decision of the Supreme Court?

From The Watchman, Tom Ambrose...

Why should anyone respect them for using our Constitution as toilet paper? This is communism, folks, pure and simple. Your right to own anything – be it your money, your opinion, or your home – is gone.

The result? Divided citizens warring against each other instead of against the manipulative politicians pulling their strings.

It's past time for all of us to wake up. Prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock said, "We must be unanimous, there must be no pulling different ways; we must all hang together." "Yes," replied Ben Franklin, "we must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately." Is this not so now?

I give you my word: Unless one of the two major political parties show clear, convincing evidence that its members have returned to consistently following the Constitution, I will never again vote for either a Republican or a Democrat. Even the few good ones in each of the two parties are forced to kowtow to the corrupted principles and people who dominate their parties.

God, Family, Country: Our Three Great Loyalties

Men receive blessings by obedience to God's laws, and without obedience there is no blessing. Before the final triumphal return of the Lord, the question as to whether we may save our constitutional republic is simply based on two factors: the number of patriots and the extent of their obedience. That the Lord desires to save this nation that he raised up, there is no doubt. But that he leaves it up to us, with his help, is the awful reality.

There were men at Valley Forge who weren't sure how the revolution would end, but they were in a much better position to save their own souls and their country than those timid men whose major concern was deciding which side was going to win, or how to avoid controversy. The basic purpose of life is to prove ourselves, not to be with the majority when it is wrong. Those who hesitate to get into the fight for freedom because they're not sure if we're going to win fail to realize that we will win in the long run, and for good. Time is on the side of truth, and truth is eternal. Those who are fighting against freedom and other eternal principles of right may feel confident now, but they are shortsighted.

This is still God's world. The forces of evil, working through some mortals, have made a mess of a good part of it. But it is still God's world. In due time, when each of us has had a chance to prove himself—including whether or not we are going to stand up for freedom—God will interject himself, and the final and eternal victory shall be for free agency. And then shall those weak-willed souls on the sidelines and those who took the wrong but temporarily popular course lament their decisions.
