Judicial activism takes us from the pillars of morality

Something is wrong with the Supreme Court of Canada. I wish I could say that we can trust them, but they have flagrantly betrayed our trust. They have become guilty of judicial activism. Remember, these justices are appointed, not elected by the citizens of Canada. Even they would acknowledge, if they were honest, that their mandate and expertise is in the field of law, not in the field of morality and public conscience.

Something is wrong with the Supreme Court of Canada.

I wish I could say that we can trust them, but they have flagrantly betrayed our trust. They have become guilty of judicial activism.

Remember, these justices are appointed, not elected by the citizens of Canada. Even they would acknowledge, if they were honest, that their mandate and expertise is in the field of law, not in the field of morality and public conscience.

Yet the Supreme Court of Canada, following the lead of other misguided supreme courts, insist on desecrating moral standards that have been in place for centuries! This is judicial activism! It does not deserve respect, nor does it deserve our compliance. What it does deserve is the disapproval of our citizenry, loud and clear.

The moral people of our country, the people of conscience, believe that: life is sacred, marriage is sacred, gender is sacred. All were instituted by God as revealed in Holy Scripture. These institutions are the foundation of our western society and are necessary for our survival. History has proven them over and over.

What could the Supreme Court be thinking? How is it that they feel they have some sort of obligation to overrule the God of Creation? In their distorted arrogance, they are not serving Canadians, they are only serving themselves. They seem to want to believe that none of the above institutions are sacred, in fact, are trivial and irrelevant.

Do they hate our present society so much that they would attempt to remove its pillars, causing our eventual collapse? Do they hate God so much that, not being able to attack God directly, they resort to attacking His biblical standards given to us for our own good centuries ago?

Do they lack common sense? Certainly they lack wisdom, for the God of creation through His Son, Jesus of Nazareth, is wisdom’s only source.

Perhaps the Supreme Court wishes to become an oligarchy. Are we as citizens freely giving them this power? I hope not!

What has been the cost with some recent rulings?

Millions of unborn children in North America have been legally killed by abortion doctors with lethal weapons in their hands.

Traditional marriage is defamed and diminished, with Hollywood crassness steadily gaining in popularity.

And now euthanasia, which is a Greek word for “easy death.” This legalized murder is about to be given a happy-face by Western media and liberal politicians.

We seem to be moving into a culture of death and self-destruction, and can’t seem to help ourselves. What is pushing us to act like lemmings, rushing over a cliff?

As thoughtful citizens, we watch, listen, and ponder the messages coming from old and new sources. The newer ones are liberal media, Hollywood, liberal/socialist politicians, liberal legal minds, deviant marriage specialists, and liberal churches. So, what is the essence of their messages? Just this: “that we need to cast off traditional morals for a new vision of freedom, love, and enlightenment.” In other words, accept a “Woodstock” mentality.

It sounds wonderful but is really are turning to the dark ages, easy death and moral chaos.

Wait a minute! Who is really leading this parade of hopelessness and foolishness?

Personally, I can think of only one power, one force, in all the universe that would desire such chaos. According to Holy Scripture, because of man’s sin, God conferred onto a demonic angel the power of death. This angel became the “Prince” of the earth and the “master of deceit.”

Could this angel of supernatural power actually deceive millions, even billions, of earthlings including the Western world’s supreme courts?

Absolutely!

As I ponder the experience of the old Roman Empire, I wonder if we have already gone too far to avoid a similar collapse from within?
