Merrel Wilkenfeld’s in his letter, “Radical right should embrace whole Constitution,” in the Sept. 4 edition of The Lancaster News, has proven again that the left is really uninformed, misinformed and does not know or understand the Constitution.
The so called radical, religious right is more tuned into the Constitution than the left. The left always brings out the words – separation of church and state – mentioned in the Constitution. I ask them to go and read the separation-of-church-and-state clause again.
Our Founders were extremely concerned that the state would tell them which religion they were going to have – just like in England or in Spain.
They did believe that men should bring their faith and their God into government. They did not even think that an atheist could serve in government because of the oath that they had to say which included ...”so help me God.” Can an atheist today say that oath with any truth? If they do, can we believe them?
Our Bill of Rights gives the people the right to bear arms. This right would protect us from a standing army of the government, which England did have against its people.
The Bill of Rights is to protect the people from the government who are elected by the people.
Our Founders said our creator gives us unalienable rights. Our government is created among men to secure these rights by getting its power from the consent of the governed.
The struggle today is that the government is taking powers it does not have while getting strength from a voting block that believes in voting itself benefits. (What Constitution?) That second right is what gives the people the strength to protect the other nine rights.
History records that Hitler took away peoples’ guns, then their religion, then their property and then shipped them to some gas chambers.
He was voted into power by the people, also. The left is following this play book and those stinking guns are getting in the way.
The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 10:2, “The heart of the wise man inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool inclines to the left.”
