LETTER TO EDITOR: Group wants Satan monument placed where one of the Ten Commandments stood
Even so….it can clearly be proven that belief in God excludes Satanism and Atheism from official public display. They are the only allowed exclusions when it comes to the processes for the public application of the separation of Church & State specified in our current Constitution. By way of the logical procedures of argument, and its requirement to consider everything that is presented, combined with the citizenship responsibility of the rest of us to defend with our lives their right to worship, as long as they maintain a mind’s eye to the civil rights of others; they, and their representatives have been able to make everybody believe that the - embedded in ALL of our national documents - display of God’s recognized intent is a violation of the rules against the establishment of a state approved religion. This is completely false.
We must recognize and accept what it means that some requests for Constitutional cover can easily generated a misperception, because the answer must be sifted from processes that produce the real feeling of a pipe wrench gripping and twisting the mind and its ability to reason. Frequently….this is what it is like when the intended fairness and intended righteousness is required to be promoted in an environment where everyone is allowed to be right their own way. This is clearly provable by observing the amount of trouble/disagreement there is between the ones specifically trained to construct such judgments.
You see….in our first governing document, The Declaration of Independence , immediately in the one sentence first paragraph and in the first sentence of the second paragraph, the founders assigned us and our effort to be a free and happy people to the authority, intent, and existence of God/The Creator. With civil authority alone they had the right to form a pre-exact rules organization/society, or society (Hmm) the way they wanted to. That is….they had the legal right to state that God as they knew Him will be the bases for the source and makeup of human righteousness and tolerance of difference, and to “Declare” that it must be the sanctioned process for searching for a way of supporting the human need to have a chance to survive periods of being incorrect. That it must be the sanctioned process for allowing the human need to find a way through the limitlessness. That it must be the sanctioned process for the human need to meet the demands that develop from being exposed to first one day, and then another day before anything can be made to fit each set of eyes and each set of hands.
In our second governing document, The Articles of Confederation [Ratified in 1781], in the second and last paragraphs of Article XIII, they signed their names after issuing the authority, “And whereas it hath pleased the Great Governor of the World to incline the hearts of the legislatures we respectively represent in Congress, to approve of, and to authorize us to ratify the said Articles of Confederation and perpetual Union…And that the Articles shall be inviolably observed by the States we respectively represent, and that the Union shall be perpetual.” -and- “In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands in Congress. Done at Philadelphia in the State of Pennsylvania the ninth day of July in the year of our Lord…”
In Article VII of our current Constitution , the founders specified the center of the Universal Source of our right to live free and seek happiness by again signing only after issuing the authority “…in the year of our Lord…”
The very first statements in the Oklahoma State Constitution are:
Invoking the guidance of Almighty God, in order to secure and perpetuate the blessing of liberty; to secure just and rightful government; to promote our mutual welfare and happiness, we, the people of the State of Oklahoma, do ordain and establish this Constitution.
§ 1. Supreme law of land.
The State of Oklahoma is an inseparable part of the Federal Union, and the Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land.”
One other important thing, without variation or in other words, to a man, they ALL worshipped and signed their names/their lives, and the lives of their wives, and the lives of their children to a God that excluded Satan’s preferences from the affairs of men. Thereby….Satanists and Atheists are to be excluded from equal rights of official public display. Because Divinity requires that they live as free souls, they may worship who they choose, and we must defend their right to survive the effort to find their way. Even so….they only have the civil right to make displays on the property or properties that they own. In the case of the Satanist’s request to have the equal right to place a statue on public property, it is clearly constitutionally legal to specifically exclude their religious issues/preferences from the public space.
Every Founding Father practiced a belief in God that excluded Satan from using the affairs of men. Their religions were: Episcopalian/Anglican, Presbyterian, Congregationalist, Quaker, Dutch Reformed/German Reformed, Lutheran, Catholic, Huguenot, Unitarian, Methodist, Calvinist, and Protestant.Life sure is interesting, isn’t it?
