Bill Written by Thomas Jefferson as Governor of Virginia in 1779

A Bill written and promoted by Thomas Jefferson as governor of Virginia in 1779. Hmmm, not really the liberal atheist they try to make him out to be, eh?

“Marriages prohibited by the Levitical law shall be null; and persons marrying contrary to that prohibition and cohabitating as man and wife, convicted thereof in the General Court, shall be [fined] from time to time until they separate.”

Thomas Jefferson, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson
Vol. II, 557, “A Bill Annulling the Marriages Prohibited by the Levitical Law, and Appointing the Mode of Solemnizing Lawful Marriage.”

Quote of the Month; John Adams

“[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1854)

Why did SCOTUS suddenly change the interpretation of the “separation of church and state” in 1947?

Another faulty precedent from our blacked robed high priests (This is just one one of many poorly supported precedents used to force atheism into the position of a national religion)

It was not until 1947 that SCOTUS suddenly changed the interpretation of the first amendment and the meaning of “separation of church and state”. Here is a quote from that 1947 decision using the claim of Jefferson as being the main contributor to the constitution and first amendment, as precedent for their ruling;

“This Court has previously recognized that the provisions of the First Amendment, in the drafting and adoption of which … Jefferson played such (a) leading role.” Everson v. Bd. of Educ. 330 U.S. 1, 13 (194

But Jefferson was in Paris when it was written;

“I was in Europe when the Constitution was planned and never saw it till after it was established.” (1)

A simple fact unknown or ignored by many of today’s writers is that Jefferson did not participate in framing the Constitution. He was not even in America when it was framed; so how could he be considered a primary influence on it? And he was likewise out of the country when the First Amendment was written. As he openly acknowledged:

“On receiving it [the Constitution while in France], I wrote strongly to Mr. Madison, urging the want of provision for the freedom of religion, freedom of the press, trial by jury, habeas corpus, the substitution of militia for a standing army, and an express reservation to the States of all rights” (1)

More on the Atheist Usurpation of the Christian Faith in the Public Arena-

Many doctored SCOTUS justices totally misunderstand and misinterpret Jefferson’s interpretation of the so-called separation of church and state; saying that because as a federal officer he never called for official days of prayer or fasting, they purport he felt this would violate the establishment clause. (snort) But he clearly said that was not true; he believed it was only wrong for the federal government to do so- not the state governments. And in fact he had often ordered fasts and prayer days as governor of Virginia. It was his view of federalism being held in check, not anything to do with the modern view of the establishment clause, that caused him to hold back on issuing official days of prayer;

For example, Supreme Court Justices William Brennan and Thurgood Marshall noted in Marsh v. Chambers that “Thomas Jefferson … during [his] respective terms as President, refused on Establishment Clause [First Amendment] grounds to declare national days of thanksgiving or fasting.”And Justice Anthony Kennedy similarly remarked in Allegheny v. ACLU: “In keeping with his strict views of the degree of separation mandated by the Establishment Clause, Thomas Jefferson declined to follow this tradition [of issuing national proclamations].”

But Jefferson himself said;
“I consider the government of the United States [i.e., the federal government] as interdicted [prohibited] by the Constitution from intermeddling with religious institutions, their doctrines, discipline, or exercises. (like the Anglicans had done in England)This results not only from the provision that “no law shall be made respecting the establishment or free exercise of religion” [the First Amendment], but from that also which reserves to the states the powers not delegated to the United States [the Tenth Amendment]. Certainly, no power to prescribe any religious exercise or to assume authority in religious discipline has been delegated to the general [federal] government. It must then rest with the states, as far as it can be in any human authority. But it is only proposed that I should recommend, not prescribe [require] a day of fasting and prayer…. I am aware that the practice of my predecessors may be quoted. But I have ever believed that the example of state executives [governors issuing prayer proclamations] led to the assumption of that authority by the general government [of the president issuing prayer proclamations] without due examination, which would have discovered that what might be a right in a state government was a violation of that right when assumed by another.” Thomas Jefferson, Memoir, Correspondence, and Miscellanies (1830), Vol. IV, 104, to Samuel Miller on January 23, 1808.

While Jefferson refused to issue a federal call for prayer, he had certainly done so as a state leader. In addition to his 1774 efforts with Virginia’s call for prayer, in 1779 as state governor he issued a statewide proclamation calling his fellow Virginians to prayer, asking them to give thanks “that He [God] hath diffused the glorious light of the Gospel…” He also authored bills that insisted on using the book of Leviticus for marriage standards. as well as other bills resting on clear biblical authority.

Jefferson and Separation of Christianity from Government

In 1779 when Jefferson became governor of Virginia, he introduced into the state legislature a package of bills including one on marriage;

“Marriages prohibited by the Levitical law shall be null; and persons marrying contrary to that prohibition and cohabitating as man and wife, convicted thereof in the General Court, shall be [fined] from time to time until they separate.”

Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Vol.1, 556,”A bill annulling the marriages prohibited by Leviticus Law and appointing the mode for solemnizing lawful marriage”

It seems pretty clear here, that the SCOTUS jurists didn’t find or use any precept from 250 years of American government or history, when they redefined the definition of marriage for us in 2015. Oh, well! As I’ve said, SCOTUS has bankrupted itself with wild decisions, made outside of their authority, based on imaginary precepts, poor jurisprudence, fear of cultural repercussions and faulty interpretations. We need to get a rope on them, throw them, tie their feet together and let the people vote again, and the legislators legislate.

The Supreme Court of the US has bipassed God given rights and has overstepped its authority more than once and invented rights that don’t exist to increase its reach. For example;

-The right to outlaw prayer in schools doesn’t exist – 1963

-The right to outlaw God and the Bible from the schools does not exist- 1941

-The right to make atheism the default state religion doesn’t exist – a result of above rulings- and Darwinian indoctrination –

-The right to keep slaves doesn’t exist (1857, Dred Scot SCOTUS ruling legalizing slavery)

-The right to kill prenatal infants does not exist – 1973-prenatal infanticide ruled as legal-

-The redefinition of marriage, ignoring 250 years of American precepts- 2015- SCOTUS found the right to redefine marriage for an entire nation-

Not a great track record- unless you’re a Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin or Engels or Trotsky fan.

“We must go to them with the propaganda of atheism, for only this defines the place of man in the universe”
Leon Trotsky, Russia

THE LA TIMES INADVERTENTLY ADMITS TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT WHAT’S CAUSING CALIFORNIA’S MASSIVE WILDFIRES

THE LA TIMES INADVERTENTLY ADMITS TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT WHAT’S CAUSING CALIFORNIA’S MASSIVE WILDFIRES

When they say thinning is needed, they’re admitting we need to return to more logging AND grazing. And it’s not just fires that cause damage when we don’t log and graze. What they don’t want to tell you is they now know logging and grazing help the land sequester carbon, which they blame for “Climate Change” Any idea how much carbon goes up when it burns? Massive carbon is added to atmosphere. So uncontrolled burning is never good. They have destroyed the forest in 20 years and lost billions of dollars doing it. And yet you think they understand and can control the climate? This is what happens when pagan atheist/pantheism takes over a government- which then adopts their forest management practices to it- Have we learned yet?

Scumbag? Why CNN is reduced to name calling

Scumbag?
Why does the left continuously rely on name calling? Because if they could they would attack his policies, but they can’t do that without looking like idiots. “Scumbag”?
– Tore down the biggest government created crisis scam in history, the global warming money suck and power grab; and the weather didn’t change.
– Boldy placed our Israeli embassy in Jerusalem, something too straightforward and respectful of the Jewish nations right to exist, for any other blathering, politically gaming president. He did it.
-Called North Korea’s bluff, at least enough to establish a relationship again between the two Korea’s. No previous president came close.
-In 6 months he kicked ISIS’s ass, and changed the rules of engagement which saved American lives and allowed us to win. Obama created ISIS.
-He stripped away thousands of Obama era business regulations that were killing the economy and he turned the economy around, helping entrepreneurs and workers. All Obama could say is, “Duhhhhh. ”
-He placed a new head in the EPA who took the reins away from the hyper urban environmentalists who were having Cowboys shot, cows kicked off the land and more tortoises moved in (just for starters) Maybe we can log again?
-He has openly attacked the UN world organization for its flagrant bias against the one Jewish nation and its horrific wasteful spending. No other president had the guts.
-And these are just a few of the things he has done that no other president would have had the steel to do, they don’t even come close. Have a nice day.
