I’ve been getting conflicting information on the true foundation stone of American Greatness. Which one was it: The Ten Commandments or Heterosexual Marriage?
Erstwhile Judge Roy Moore says it was the former:
Moore says he displays the Ten Commandments in judicial buildings because they are the foundation for America's legal system.
"It is required that this nation acknowledge God's law as its foundation, because both the Constitution and Bill of Rights enshrine those principles," he says.
Rebecca Hagelin, the perky sweetheart of the Heritage Foundation, says it was the latter:
Four activist judges in Massachusetts may have just marked the beginning of the end for America.
How? By destroying the building block of society, and replacing it with nothing more than straw.
To redefine marriage – the very core of what we know as family – is to wreak havoc on every other institution that holds our country together. From the legal system, to interstate commerce, to health care, to your neighborhood, everything would eventually fall apart. Why? Because the nuclear family – starting with the marriage of one man and one woman – is the very foundation of the entire human race and every single civil society since the beginning of time.
Good thing she didn’t engage in hyperbole, because then her editorial might have sucked (I stole that line from Scott Adams).
Until someone clears up which one of these is the true foundation of this Great Nation, I’ll have to keep supporting my evil, liberal false idols of justice, fairness, tolerance, and inclusion (somewhat redundant too, but I didn’t want to leave any principles out for fear of hurting their feelings).
