Our Declaration of Independence speaks of "the laws of nature" and of "nature's God", and of our Creator, and of certain inalienable human rights endowed by that Creator. The authors were building the American nation on the bedrock of the "love of neighbor" commandments, which define man's proper morality. Because they were all of mixed and opposing denominations of Christianity, they were avoiding the "love of God" commandments, which define man's proper theology.
Christian Morality is in the domain of Christian secular governments;
Christian Theology is in the domain of Christian clerical governments.
Christian Morality - the love-of-neighbor Commandments - formed the foundational bed-rock upon which the United States of America was first Declared and then Constituted into being.
Let's look at the Ten Commandments.
1. I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before me.
2. You shall not take the name of the Lord you God in vain.
3. Remember to keep holy the Lord's day.
4. Honor your father and your mother.
5. You shall not kill.
6. You shall not commit adultery.
7. You shall not steal.
8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.
1. I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before me.
2. You shall not make unto thee any graven image.
3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
4. Remember to keep holy the Lord's day.
5. Honor your father and your mother.
6. You shall not kill.
7. You shall not commit adultery.
8. You shall not steal.
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house, nor his wife, nor his goods.
The first three (four in the Protestant counting) Commandments are the "love of God" Commandments, from which flow the Theological Law. The last seven (six in the Protestant counting) Commandments are the "love of neighbor" Commandments, from which flow the Moral Law.
We can see that Protestantism breaks the Christian counting of the first Commandment into two, and combines the 9th and 10th into one. The reason is that Protestantism kept the pre-Christian Jewish prohibition of "graven image" making because, until Jesus Christ, no one had ever seen the face of God, and the Jews do not believe that Jesus Christ was God. Yet, Jesus Himself tells us Who He was, and is.
Jesus saith to him: Have I been so long a time with you; and have you not known me? Philip, he that seeth me seeth the Father also. How sayest thou, shew us the Father?--John 14:9
With that identification, man had seen the face of God, and man was then free to make icons of God and venerate them, with all veneration of the icon passing on to the One represented by the icon.
But how do the Commandments treat the argument between Socialism and Capitalism, which actually is, the argument between private ownership of property and communal ownership of property?
Implicit within Honor Thy father and Thy mother is the sacredness of the normative family, and the presumptive right of parents to first authority over their own children, and to special social protections for the family.
Implicit within Thou shalt not kill is the inalienable right of all innocent human beings to continue to live.
Implicit within Thou shalt not commit adultery is the sanctity and inviolability and protected nature of the marriage covenant, and, again, the sanctity and protected nature of the family.
Implicit within Thou shalt not steal is the inalienable right to private property: the right of an individual to actually own something.
Implicit within Thou shalt not bear false witness is the protected and sacred nature of truth, and the moral requirement to protect it and to profess it fully and without distortion.
Implicit within Thou shalt not covet is, again, the sanctity of marriage, and, again, the protected right to own private property.
You can't get around it. These are the Moral Commandments; this is Moral Law, it is the Law Of Neighbors and it is Natural Law. This is what Catholics and Protestants and even Jews hold in common.
Our Moral Political Common Ground, Despite Our Major Theological Differences.
This is basic right and wrong. This is how all people who, rightly or wrongly, call themselves Christians or Jews are supposed to live with each other, As Neighbors, regardless of their divergent theologies and regardless of how they worship.
You don't need any fancy degree, and you don't need to be an ordained cleric or a consecrated religious to know this stuff. This is all basic, fundamental, even elementary Catholicism. All confirmed Catholics should know it, and all Protestants, of whatever denomination, should know it. This is how all Christians and Jews tell right from wrong; this is, or should be, the beginning point of American Politics.
This is, or should always be, the bedrock foundational basis for all legislated representative civil law. The fully mature adult properly raised in a Western Culture Family and Religion, has recognized, experienced and embraced the spiritual aspects of the Natural Law, and has become religiously motivated to love it, obey it and pass it on to his children.
And what we are looking at today is what happens after Christianity itself has been completely removed from the picture.
The USA was a Christian nation at birth. The original colonial religions were:
The primary if not whole reason that the original pilgrims and later European immigrants came here to form the colonies was to escape the brutal Protestant imposition of specific Christian denominationalism upon the citizenry. After the Protestant Reformation wars, European citizens either adopted the denomination of the current king, or they were persecuted, even unto death.
The whole reason for First Amendment freedom of worship, established by the prohibition of the federal government from establishing a national religion, was to end dictated religion and leave the citizenry free to worship in their preferred Christian denomination.
Now, contemporary Americans may argue about whether the original authors, framers and ratifiers of the Declaration and the Constitution were all perfect Christians, or Deists, or atheists, or agnostics, or even Freemasons. But there can be no argument regarding their morality, which was Christian, to a man. All of them held to the exact same sense of right versus wrong. And all of them, with very few notable exceptions, observed Sunday service in some Christian Church. Even the Deists, and even the Freemasons.
From the very beginning American law was based on Christian morality.
The Marxist Cultural Revolution has been working its evil for a hundred years, distracting from if not demonizing Christianity, and the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" set have already largely turned America's original Christian morality upside down. To the rock n' roll set, morality is immoral, and immorality is moral. The more dope they smoke and the more illicit sex they practice the more immoral they become.
Religion is no after-thought for them; it is a non-thought.
For much of the rest of contemporary America Christian religion has been "compartmentalized" and separated out from the living of life. Christianity is for Sundays and special occasions only, and all the rest of the time other subjects dominate, and religion is kept out of all other subjects and areas of the living of life.
And that's American government and American citizenry's main problem.
Christianity is something to be lived, not "compartmentalized", and not kept separate from any part of citizen life. It is supposed to be the main driver of life.
What could be more important than God?
Well, what is more important than God, for the godless and ungodly, is,
Godlessness, immorality and unreality go together. Wherever you find one you will find the other two.
From the clearly and almost openly criminal Biden Presidency and the clearly and almost openly Marxist and anti-American Marxocrat Party on down, this current federal government of the USA, quite unconstitutionally and therefore quite illegally,
And that's not all, by a long shot. Just look at Biden's Vice President, his press secretary, his cabinet and all of his Presidential appointments. It's an absolute freak show of twisted perverts, deviates and nutburgers. He's not just out to end American national sovereignty and bring America down, like all other Marxists.
He is actually out to pervert America.
It isn't just Biden who is incompetent in his job. His whole government is incompetent, and not only that, but,
We have long held that "tolerance" of sodomy was a bait-and-switch goal of the sodomites. Today, you will not only tolerate, but embrace, praise, celebrate and uplift sodomy, or you will suffer the most severe of consequences.
The sodomite movement is just as deadly to human liberty as are Marxism and Islam.
Wake up to it and face it.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
