“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” — John Adams
A couple of weeks ago, I volunteered for my church’s VBS. It was a good time and I enjoy my role as Science and Craft teacher. One of the projects we did was making boomerangs. This was a science project where we learned about dihedral angles and airfoils. The latter gives lift and the former is what creates the ability of the boomerang to come back to you. Yay, physics! Our popsicle-stick boomerangs really did work, too.
Of course, I get to tie this into religious and life principles and our theme for the week was how God created his world special. And part of that are laws for us to follow and laws for nature to follow. The lead-in was a recitation of some bizarre laws. Some of these came from the literature provided, others came from my John’s Bathroom Reader (I know you know what I’m talking about…)
– It is illegal in one state to bite off someone’s arm.
– In Missouri, it is illegal to drive your car with an uncaged bear in the vehicle with you.
– In a city (I think LA), it is illegal to tie your giraffe up to a light pole.
– I think in the same city, it is illegal to snow.
Funny thing about laws is that they don’t usually become laws until someone has done that thing and it has caused a problem. I’m curious about that bear and giraffe one…
Our freedoms work with people who respect each other and respect life. For people who share a moral foundation. That is how we get away with fewer laws. That is how it works.
We are not that anymore. We live in a country where we have financially incentivized medical and psychiatric personnel promoting the mutilation of children. A moral people does not do this. And absolutely it is within the purview of the law to protect the lives of children and interfere in this debacle of corrupt medicine, lobotomized parents, and their confused offspring.
Any governor who thinks the law has no business here deserves to be ousted and protested with extreme prejudice.
