Injustice: Idiot Fruit Of Humanist Law

Surrounded by Idiots

As we participate in the collapse of the increasingly idiot humanist culture around us questions come to the fore in our (not so idiot) minds. How did we arrive at this low place? Why didn’t we see this brutality and injustice coming? News of the latest injustice fills our eyes and ears daily to a point where we are hardly surprised at the assaults to our rights. Today’s news carries a story about a man in Michigan who was ticketed by police for leaving his own vehicle, on private property, running with no one inside. The police surmised that the vehicle could have been stolen, the supposed ensuing police chase could have been dangerous to public safety, and so justified their unbiblical stomping on what should, obviously have been, a freeman’s lawful rights. This rather minor trampling of justice pales in comparison to our nation’s tacit acceptance of the murder of over 3,000 unborn babies every day of the week. The destruction of justice often begins with small infractions that are ignored and accepted and then the larger, gross injustices eventually become easier to pass into the culture. As Christians we need to consider how our acceptance of compromise or injustice today may cause us to participate in even greater injustices later on.

Symbols of Idiocracy

One of the largest symbols of justice and idiot humanist religion in our country is the Supreme Court building in Washington, DC. With its Neoclassical pillars, marble façade, self-supporting stairs, marble interior, and busts of crazed, leftist justices and political heroes, it stands as an architectural shrine visited by thousands of (might we say worshippers?) every year. The official rules say you must speak in hushed tones while gazing upon the relics. The hushed tones may not bother us too much for, as we understand, it is impolite to disturb the justices, um err — priests. And priests they are as they supplant the law of Moses the biblical priest (Psalm 99:6) with their own versions of whacky holy writ.

This undermining of biblical ideals at the Supreme Court was expected and predicted even within the architecture of the building itself. Its various pediments and friezes exhibit the prevailing philosophy of its designers. The east pediment (that triangular section between the tops of the support columns to the underside of the roof) shows Moses holding the Ten Commandments flanked by Confucius and Salon. Inside the courtroom a panoply of eighteen lawgivers look down on the living (supposed) lawgivers below. By honoring all these alternative lawgivers the architects were letting us know that justice is not a fixed standard. It, supposedly, derives from a combination of perceived justice from every age and culture. We are to believe that every philosophy, however nuts, must have a voice in our supreme courtroom.

Architecture for Justice

The idea that every philosophy must have a voice in American justice is foreign to our founding philosophy and religion which was almost exclusively Protestant Christian. Out of the fifty-four signers of our American Constitution fifty-one had degrees from seminaries or were elders or deacons in Christian churches. Unfortunately, by the time the Supreme Court building was built in the 1930s our national religion had become, essentially, humanism. Christian ideals were pushed to the rear and humanist preferences elbowed their way forward. This is why we find, for instance, Confucius on the eastern pediment. Confucius produced a religion of optimistic humanism. His many aphorisms can be witty or wise or even profound but they are not inspired, nor do they claim to be, on the level that God’s Word is inspired (perfectly). In fact Confucius’ writings seem to have no organized civil law code. Confucius, it seems, never did come up with solid standards of justice—he had no means to do so. Yet these architects for the Supreme Court Building (our idiot humanist handlers) want us to seek justice under Confucius’ gaze. Salon, the other humanist hero on that eastern pediment is reported to have brought better justice to Athens around 600 BC. However, his writings have all been lost and only survive as a few fragments, references in the writings of Herodotus and Plutarch who both lived long after Salon died. No one really knows much about Salon but the humanists in their project to undermine Christian culture and justice in America, chiseled him up there in support of their misguided faith.                                    

The panoply of eighteen more humanist law givers above the living justices contains all sorts of mad entries such as Menes the Law Giver, Draco (from whence the word draconian derives), and the Greek, Lycurgus, who ruled about 730 BC. Under Lycurgus the law declared that defective babies must be thrown off a cliff (modern humanists chop them into pieces and throw them into dumpsters) and a heavily supervised slave system supported the state. Muhammad is up there too, by the way, representing Muslim Sharia law. This would be the system that oppresses women to a point of absurdity, including the mark of the beast, female circumcision, and cuts off the hands (what is it with Muslims always wanting to cut something off?) of thieves instead of demanding restitution to the victim as biblical law requires. Sharia law, home for misogynistic mama’s boys afraid of real women, was suitable to be represented on the Supreme Court walls by our humanist caretakers. The humanists of our age do not want us to question their insane pluralistic heroes or ideals for justice. They desire us to remain quiet and by our silence endorse their unctuous cult of pluralism. Humanists think we should look to the leaders and producers of some of the most unjust societies in the world to protect us from injustice in our own time. Lady Justice, who they sculptured into the Supreme Court building three times (and who we hope remains uncircumcised) should not be expected to defend the entire humanist pantheon of law givers. That humanist dream has been running for over eight decades now but it is both foolish and immoral.

Humanists like those who designed our Supreme Court building have been working relentlessly to undermine, reduce, and replace Christian law with a variation—a home-made revelation from their own Zion. What they have been entirely unable to do is to foster righteousness or justice in the land. They cannot stop the inevitable entrenchment of tyranny. With no firm basis to determine what is just they trade away their culture's inheritance of more just laws for the pottage of ancient humanist tyranny. The words of the Apostle Peter might just as easily describe American culture, when he discusses the return to sin and tyranny in his day for:

[deceivers spoke] out arrogant words of vanity [and] they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error, promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them. It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "a dog returns to its vomit," and, "A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire" -2 Peter 2:18–22

Trade Idiocy for Justice

The first code of law written for Americans by Americans was The Massachusetts Body of Liberties, written in 1644. That code identified for almost every line of law the Scripture that taught the principle for the law. The Body of Liberties was not perfect but it made a sincere attempt to instill justice and (even in its title) liberties for Plymouth Colony. Since that day our nation has slowly trended away from Scripture and toward humanistic tyranny. No one thinks of our current law as a body of liberties, for it is not. With our vast system of unbiblical prisons, police search and seizure for the barest of causes, licensing for an estimated one third of all career trades in our nation, virtually no restitution paid to victims of crimes, and deserved death penalties being rarely administered, liberty has fled the land and the injustice of idiots has rushed in to fill the void. When we consider the required rates of taxation it is not an exaggeration to say we have traded liberty for tyranny. When the biggest fear most Americans suffer is that of their own government’s tax enforcement or police agents kicking down their doors at night, it seems high time to restore just laws and just courts.

The only answer to the encroaching slavery is to return to biblical law. Our hearts must return to the God of our forefathers. His written Word in Scripture has to become our bulwark against humanist idiot (I couldn’t resist working that in one last time) tyranny. We must rear up a generation of courageous men who will demand just, biblical laws and courts. It is imperative that every Christian family teach their own children the basics of God’s law and how to apply it in current culture. Our children will never learn this type of vital information nor the courage to promote it within the government schools. We must take hold of the Word and law of God and implant it in our children’s hearts. If weak willed churches will not help with this work then we need to change churches. Psalm 119 instructs:

The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts. I have inherited Your testimonies forever, for they are the joy of my heart. I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, even to the end (Psalm 119:110–112).

Our nation is fast falling into tyranny. And, not so symbolically speaking, we need to rear a generation who will chisel all those ridiculous humanist lawmakers off the Supreme Court building. The next generation awaits the action of our generation. Let’s get to work.
