CRA 2005 Update
A classic justification for passage of the Constitution Restoration Act of 2005 (S. 520 in the Senate and H.R. 1070 in the House) is shown in a recent federal district judge’s ruling that the Indiana Legislature’s mention of the name of Jesus during prayer is unconstitutional. See http://www.family.org/cforum/news/a0038817.cfm. While the Speaker of the Indiana House characterized this unelected federal judge’s decision as “intolerable”, it remains to be seen what specific action will follow.
It’s been said that when everything is said and done, more is usually said than done. Enactment of the Constitution Restoration Act of 2005 would totally remove jurisdiction from the federal courts over the acknowledgement of God as sovereign source of law, liberty, or government. And if a federal judge ignores this statute, that fact would be evidence of a breach of the “good behaviour” condition for the judge’s holding office. That development would give America a much-needed lesson in constitutional law, specifically Article III, Section 1.
The threats to America’s national security today are such that it behooves us to heed the warning of that “Defender of the Constitution” Daniel Webster:
“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and continue to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.” (Daniel Webster, statesmen and orator, God Bless America, Prayer and Reflections for Our Country)
For a more current affirmation of this imperative, Billy Graham, upon receiving the Congressional Gold Medal in 1996, stated: “As we face a new millennium, I believe America has gone a long way down the wrong road. We must turn around… If ever we needed God’s help, it is now.”
You can help by urging your congressman/woman and U.S. Senators to become co-sponsor of the Constitution Restoration Act of 2005. Here is a link: http://www.lafamilyforum.org/explore.cfm/newsandalerts?Screen=alert&IssueId=5326&SessionID=$SITEID=-1:AID=176:APP=GAC$
Don’t put it off; do it now even as Louisiana’s recently approved Senate Concurrent Resolution 30 has urged Congress to act.
