Readers Write – Absolute Truth

Dear Editor,

Alan M. Dershowitz, the internationally known legal scholar, the night before the Supreme Court heard the Hobby Lobby case, commented that everyone knows that the founders meant by the establishment clause in the 1st Amendment was the Federal Government could not establish an official Federal religion.

Dershowitz went on to explain that it has been reinterpreted now. In other words that the present courts interpret the U.S. Constitution differently from what the founders meant. It seems axiomatic (a self evident truth) to me “that if a man or group of men have the authority to make a law that is binding on me what they meant by the law is what is binding on me.” The only way anyone can say the Establishment clause keeps a public school teacher from having a Bible on her desk is to change the meaning of the 1st Amendment.

The radical left denies there is anything as absolute truth. The extreme left has been doing that since the 60’s when they started the absurd, “What is true for you may not be true for me.” John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus clearly meant that as truth for every man. Regardless what that means to you, Jesus said that no man can go to God the Father apart from Jesus Christ. That is absolute truth!

The First Amendment clearly states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;…” Now in the free exercise of their religious beliefs Hobby Lobby chooses not to provide insurance for devices that destroy a fertilized egg, human life. They provide insurance coverage for other means of birth control. One of the arguments against them is that they are a corporation. The 1st Amendment nowhere distinguishes between an individual, a church, a family, or a family that is incorporated. True to form the radical left, not believing in truth, thinks it means what they want it to mean.

Your’s praying that America will once again believe in Truth.
