Religion and Journalism in American Politics

Why is Atheism, and not Catholicism, off limits in American Political Debates? And where did Journalism get any right to "monitor" American Political Debates?

Religion In American Politics

We are a Constitutional Republic, and not a Democratic Republic, and that is an important point. We are not ruled by "Our Democracy"; we are ruled by our Constitution. All of us, equally. All of the people, and all of the government officials, from the President on down. The Constitution, as the supreme law of the land, is our only secular ruler.

What does our Constitution say about religion?

In Article VI, it says:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

The First Constitutional Right in the First Amendment says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

There is nothing in our Constitution prohibiting the public questioning of any candidate on their religious beliefs. What is restricted by our Constitution is a requirement of a candidate to be or not to be of any particular confession or faith, as a requirement for the position.

We have shown that the "principle" of Separation of Church and State is unconstitutional on its face. No such intention was held by the authors and ratifiers of the Constitution, who would have abhorred the very idea and the secular religious-cleansing that followed it. It gave atheism the political upper hand over the original Christian confessions that formed the moral basis for the writing of the Constitution itself.

Note well that the "Separation Principle" is not to be found in the Constitution itself, but only in an unconstitutionally established legal precedent of a Constitutionally questionable Supreme Court ruling in Everson v Board of Education 1947. As an unconstitutional constitutional principle, it awaits a Presidential or Congressional act to strike it down as unconstitutional, null, no law and no legal precedent. 

The reason this is such an important issue is that morality, which flows from religion, is the basis for secular law. When the morality of the people is the same as the morality of the secular law, peace and calmness predominates in the land. When the morality of the people and the morality of the secular law are at odds, there is discord, chaos and trouble in the land.

I submit that the morality of the American Constitution is Christian.

The vital question today is, what is the morality of the government?

Note that the worst questioning of any candidate for high office, particularly for the office of Supreme Court Justice, is reserved for Christian confessions, and especially for Catholics, and even more especially for traditional Catholics.

But not for atheists. They get a pass. They are "sophisticated".

The reason is the difference between Constitutional Rights, all of which are seen as both Natural Law Rights and in agreement with Christianity, and Atheist rights, which are not in the Constitution at all, but are held by the atheists to be superior to and overriding of actual Constitutional rights. 

  • The right to abort people.
  • The right to commit sodomy or other perverse sex acts.
  • The right of homosexuals to marry.
  • The right of gender re-identification and re-re-identification.
  • The right of easy no-fault divorce and even easier re-marriage.
  • The right to commit fornication and cohabitation.
  • The right of the state to assume authority over other people's children.
  • The right of the state to control all education.
  • The right of the state to control medical practice and insurance.
  • The right of the state to prohibit discrimination against immoral people.
  • The right of the state to prohibit discrimination against immoral acts.

None of these "rights" are in the Constitution and none of them flow from Christian morality. They are all born of atheism, agnosticism, weak belief or heresy, and they are all vehemently protected in American politics as if they were somehow sacred, or even sacraments.

The Marxocrat Party sponsors every one of these spurious rights, and stands ready to defend them to the death.

And that is what Catholic Judge Amy Coney Barrett is about to be questioned, insulted, harangued and harassed about in the absolutely unnecessary hearings coming up. There is no need for hearings. There should have been a simple up or down vote and be done with it, and Lindsey Grahamnesty knows it.

So his pals across the aisle will get in their disgusting shots at her.

Just once, I would like to see an immoral monster like Diane Feinstein questioned on her faith in atheism and the source of her love of abortion and sodomy, without being put off by the claim that "religion is personal" and not subject to public questioning.

As we have said before, religion relates to reality. There is nothing personal about reality. A religion is either true, or it is not true. There is either One God, or there it not, and anyone who cannot publicly state where he stands on that question is hiding something for good reason. Political reason.

Religion should be the main point and the primary focus of all political argument. What could be more important than religion in politics?

But, that religious questioning should always run on a two-way street.

Moslems, for instance, while not prohibited from candidacy for Constitutional office (until after we successfully outlaw Islam), should be asked in public political forums whether they fully ascribe to Islam's drive to bring the world into total submission to Islamic religion, law and government, or, if they could honestly take the oath of office and bring themselves into total submission to the legal rule of the American Constitution.

One or the other; it could not be both. There can be no compromise point between submission to Islam and submission to the Constitution.

Similarly, Marxists of any variety, but especially Marxocrats, who's "religion" is almost definitively atheism, while not prohibited from candidacy for Constitutional office (until we successfully outlaw Marxism), should be asked in public political forums whether they fully ascribe to Marxism/Socialism/Communism/Fascism/Nazism, or if they could honestly take the oath of office and bring themselves into total submission to the legal rule of the American Constitution.

One or the other; it could not be both. There can be no compromise point between submission to Marxism and submission to the Constitution.

It is not a mere coincidence that Islam and Marxism are antithetical to Catholicism and also antithetical to the American Constitution.

Journalism In American Politics

There is nothing in the Constitution making the news media or the field of journalism any part of the government. Freedom of the Press, in the First Amendment, was intended for all of us ordinary people, not for any special class of people that might arise and be anointed by anyone, or anointed by themselves. The clause was intended to protect citizens like Thomas Payne, who, having access to a printing press, was the "blogger" of his day, who earned the ire of the Crown by printing and distributing anti-British-rule pamphlets.

The "press", as a class, has no special place in American politics. We the People are the "press", and we are all equally the "press".

Today's big-shot millionaire journalists got their creds from Woodrow Wilson's seduction of the media, and they have thrived on that love affair with the Marxocrat Party ever since.

The American News Media is almost totally Marxocrat Party owned and operated. The only major news broadcasting network exception to that out there today is Fox News, and half of it's writers, anchors, journalists, analysts, etc., are Communists. (I mean Marxocrats). "Fair And Balanced" they call it. To keep a balance between the pro-Constitution and the anti-Constitution factions. They think a little bit of anti-Americanism in the mix is good for America. Of the remaining non-Marxocrat half at Fox, half of them are Never-Trumpers, NeoCons, and and "Fiscally Conservative but Socially Liberal".

Neither fish nor foul; what Ben Franklin called Mug-Whumps, with their mugs hanging over one side of the fence and their whumps hanging over the other. Pretending Christians who supported abortion, for instance.

People who oppose Christians imposing "their morality" on us all, and so they help, or do not resist too much, the immoral to legally impose their immorality on us all instead.

Against our will, without our representation and in direct violation of our Constitution.

Imposing immorality is "good", but imposing morality is "bad".  See?

None of these so-called social issues are Constitutional issues anyway. Short of Constitutional Amendments ratified by a super-majority of states, they are state issues. If they are not mentioned in state constitutions, they are local issues. They cannot legally be addressed at the federal level, either way. But that doesn't stop the unconstitutional Political Parties.

Why does anyone think the debates, or any debates, need a moderator or a referee of any kind? Who the hell is Chris Wallace?

Back in the Debates page we recommended a two man Presidential debate with only a time-keeper, which could even be mechanical.

We stand by that.


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.

Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi

Atheist Genesis:

In the beginning there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing.
And then nothing accidentally exploded and created everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into self-replicating bits of everything.
And then some self-replicating bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into dinosaurs.
