The unlawful awful rule of lawlessness
Most every year at this time some humanist judge misinterprets the law and rules that there can be no prayer or benediction at a graduation ceremony. This year, it was US District Judge Fred Biery in Texas who ruled that the Medina Valley School District cannot offer a prayer at its graduation otherwise the school is "sponsoring a religion." Valedictorian Angela Hildenbrand is standing up to Judge Biery. She says that her "liberties are being infringed upon by this court's ruling to censor" her speech. And the Liberty Institute has filed suit on behalf of Hildenbrand to challenge the decision. Even the Texas Attorney General is up in arms, saying its part of an ongoing attempt to purge God from the public setting.
Judge Biery should be removed from the bench, disbarred and dethroned. The First Amendment is written in plain English and the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the country. It is based on the Supreme Law of the universe--God's law. It is the social contract with the American people. It says plainly, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." That means hands off, no matter where or in what circumstance religion is exercised. Judge Biery obviously does not know the meaning of plain words or he has another agenda, which in prosecuting his duties as an unbiased source of the law, he is in violation of his oath of office.
An unjust law is no law at all. The definition of unjust is derived from the laws of God as presented in the Holy Bible. The foundation of all law in civil societies is from God's law. This is a historic fact that is traceable to the very beginnings of law in the time of Moses, through the generations into Roman and Greek societies, through the Magna Charter, English Common Law and the US Constitution. It is Biblical and Scriptural to stand against unjust laws and unjust enforcement of laws. When Peter was brought before the authorities for preaching Jesus, Acts 5:29 says, "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men."
Even in Acts 4:18-21, Peter and John had this exchange with the Sadducees: "And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard." And by law, you and I and every child are allowed to exercise our right to religion in any setting we wish. Its sad that lawsuits have to be filed against Judges like Biery. In reality, all of Texas should come to the graduation and pray, then run Biery out of the state for the disgraceful and unlawful way he rules.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
