God Save America

I call heaven and earth to witness this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live.... Deuteronomy 30:19

We need to bring the Declaration of Independence back into prominence in our public life. Even many pro-life advocates seem to think that the constitutional right to life of innocent people only comes from the Fourteenth Amendment, forgetting that the entire country was founded, long before the passing of the Fourteenth Amendment, on the right to LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is the effect of divorcing the Declaration from the Constitution. Instead, we need to see the Constitution as a means of protecting the rights enumerated in the Declaration, rights deriving not from the state but from God and nature. The whole point of federalism and separation of powers is to safeguard these rights, by making it harder for the government to become tyrannical. If we lose sight of this purpose, the Constitution becomes open to tyrannical interpretations, such as Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade. It also becomes merely an arbitrary set of rules, which there is no intrinsic reason to prefer to another set of rules. It is not surprising that federalism and separation of powers are being abandoned at the same time as abortion is being promoted. It is time to stop shunting the Declaration aside and promoting the Constitution at its expense, as so many jurists seem to do. The Constitution must be interpreted in the light of the Declaration, or else we are to lose the Constitution.
