Unwritten Constitution Under Assault

In the United States and Great Britain, immigration abetted by multiculturalism is corrupting society’s unwritten constitution, which is the positive embodiment of the spirit that animates a society and gives it a driving force of unity in belief and national aims.

  2. Pat,

    Man is the thinking animal with a conscience. These two attributes change the dynamic. The wolf kills because he is hungry. He makes no distinction between legitimate and illegitimate targets of his desire; he only knows hunger and how to satisfy it. Man is in a completely different position. He can reason and has been equipped with a conscience; and, therefore, is obliged to make moral judgments. He can 'choose' to delay hunting to a proper season, hunt first those animals that are plentiful and leave alone those in need of replenishing, kill methodically to minimize suffering, &c.

    Since His criteria cannot be invented or superceded by man's opinions, our lack of instinct is filled by those powers of reason and a certain predictability of decision & choice, the foundation of a natural society and environment for His earthly choice-maker, fulfills His conceptual obligation to our inability.

    Since the human mind can rise no higher than his pre-chosen criteria, and he cannot invent greater than GOD's, it is a basic mark of intelligence and vision when humans choose His criteria over the man-made variety. Our extensive ignorance requires an early faith.

    Validation follows 'in spades.' Knowledge grows - and more faith follows.

    "The true God is a living, intelligent, and powerful Being.

    His duration reaches from eternity to eternity.

    His presence from infinity to infinity.

    He governs all things."

    Sir Isaac Newton
