Obama’s Justice Inspires Lawlessness

February 23rd, 2011 3 comments

One of the foundational principles of our great American experience is what is known as the rule of law. Our Founding Fathers created a Constitutional Republic built upon the timeless principles of the Word of God. It was the Scriptures and the laws which emerged from these biblical principles which created a culture of unprecedented freedom, liberty and prosperity.

That’s why the news today that the Justice Department will no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act, a law created by our Legislative Branch as the express will of the people, simply because President Obama doesn’t want to, should be a cause of extreme alarm. When our own government disregards the clear law of the land you have the beginning of lawlessness. If the President of the United States can conveniently choose which laws he supports while ignoring those that don’t fit his personal taste, then why should the average American bother with respecting the law?

The Bible tells speaks of “lawlessness leading to more lawlessness” (Romans 6:19). Perhaps that’s why we are witnessing an epidemic of lawlessness in our state legislatures where one party conveniently walks out of the process and refuses to submit to or even debate the agenda of the majority party, a majority created by the free votes of the electorate.

Unfortunately, if a reverence and respect for the rule of law is not modeled by the highest ruler in the nation, we can only expect an escalation of lawlessness and anarchy among the rank and file. Unfortunately, President Obama is fueling this spirit of lawlessness and I shudder to see where our nation is headed if the rule of law is not, once again, embraced and honored.
