California Eugenics and the Devil’s Schemes

In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians he makes a comment that I have always found intriguing: “… in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.” (2 Cor. 2:11)

I find this interesting, because as it seems to me, Christians continue to be outwitted by their chief Enemy and merrily remain unaware of his schemes. Of course, this applies to non-Christians, but that goes without saying, since they don’t even believe he exists. Christians, the bulk of whom … continue reading...

The Jaffe Memo, Part 4: THEY mix religion and politics! – The Hyde Amendment

In Part 3, I promised to give an example of the totalitarian attempt to suppress religious expression in the public sphere.  Here we go.

Consider the HARRIS v. McRAE Supreme Court case of 1980.  This case revolved around the Constitutionality of the Hyde Amendment.  You will recall that Roe vs. Wade had made abortion on demand a ‘fundamental’ right in 1973.  Those who opposed abortion worked swiftly to at least ensure that government money, in particular through Medicaid, would not be used to pay for abortions.  This was the Hyde Amendment.

Now, it is very interesting to note that when … continue reading...

Christianity and Libertarians, the Republic, and the Consent of the Governed

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed Declaration of Independence


The last few months I’ve seen some strident statements of opposition against libertarians by conservatives.  I’m on several … continue reading...

Ron Weddington’s Racist, Bigoted, (Malthusian), Evil letter to Bill Clinton after his election

I came across this recently and it took me a bit to track down the original document.  It seems that it may only be available in pdf?  Here is the PDF I found of the original.  So that it might get wider exposure, I asked a trusted ACM volunteer to transcribe it for me.  I think the insight into the mind of certain folks gained from reading it is valuable.  It’s also more evidence that this way of thinking didn’t die with the Nazis.

(Ron Weddington was co-counsel for the pro-abortion camp in the Roe vs. Wade camp)

Literacy and the Rule of Law

Today the Supreme Court opened their session and I began reflecting a little on the function that this court provides for our country. As I am in constant contention with non-Christians, secular humanists and atheists in particular, I was also thinking a little about arguments that I am often engaged in with them in relation to the Constitution. Politically, I would consider myself a ‘Constitutionalist-Libertarian’ which basically means that I don’t think the government should have much power over the private individual and that the power they do have should be precisely laid out and constrained by the Constitution. In … continue reading...
