 Not only are our statutory and common law rooted in biblical morality; at a more fundamental level, so is our constitution. If we remove that foundation, the fabric of our society will unravel, and we'll eventually lose our liberties -- ironically, at the hands of those claiming to champion freedom. And, by the way, the Massachusetts Supreme Court, in demolishing traditional marriage, is itself legislating -- that's right, I said "legislating," not "adjudicating," morality.

 Secularists in our culture and on our courts are not just turning the First Amendment Establishment Clause on its head and using it as a weapon to smother religious liberty for Christians. They are further attacking our Judeo-Christian foundation by promoting individualism to the extreme -- to the exclusion of Biblical truths.

 In the abortion cases, the mother's personal convenience taken to an obscene extreme trumps the very right to life of the baby made in God's image. In the Massachusetts gay marriage case, the Biblical concept of marriage is summarily and arrogantly rejected by four robed anti-culture warriors in favor of the newfound sanctification of homosexual behavior.

 We might as well just be blunt about what's happened. According to our renegade courts, the government is not just forbidden from endorsing the Christian religion, it must now disavow its Judeo-Christian heritage. It must bastardize itself.

 Sadly, chillingly, it's all based on a lie: that the Framers intended to create an impregnable wall of separation between religion and government. But whatever the Framers believed, they certainly didn't intend to bastardize government from its Biblical parentage the instant it was spawned. What sense would it have made for them to build our Constitution on the solid, immovable rock of Biblical principles, then immediately uproot that foundational anchor?

 The courts are making quite clear their disenchantment with this wonderful document we call our Constitution, as they dismantle it bit by bit. If the prescient John Adams was correct that our Constitution is made only for a moral and religious people, perhaps before too long it will not be suitable for us.
