NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
A few of the items presupposed by the founding documents of the United States:
•An objective rational order.
•A qualitatively measured order, i.e., a contingently determined order i.e., an order constituted by the natural law.
•Ordered to a will.
•Rational beings i.e., moral beings, i.e., entities which may choose to conform to a principle and which may register truth; proclaiming some as self-evident.
•Beings whose essence is to measure; note that beings which possess an essence are not in a state-of-becoming.
•Beings which understand liberty as a self-imposed limitation impetuses.
•Life is the fundamental unalienable right upon which liberty depends, the pursuit of happiness is doubly dependent.
•The approximation of the preamble’s principles requires an electorate possessed of virtuous character.
Note: A rational order of necessity — particularly related to the founding documents — must be intentionally ordered, i.e., is a created order; to embrace the Kantian antinomies is to render the founding documents as predicated upon sand. Unalienable rights are then absurdities, and then all other “rights,” mere fiat.
The civil rights movement addressed symptomatically societal injustice e.g., racial discrimination — through court action and legislation, rather than addressing it systematically through institutions that could attempt to inculcate objective principles of morality into those being educated.
Racial discrimination is a particular form of injustice; objective moral principles cannot be reconciled with injustice.
Now let’s deal with homosexual marriage. Civil rights presuppose a ground which is invalidated as soon its advocacy realizes the “right” which transgresses the natural law. Thus, the United States jurisprudence became a house of cards with the Roe vs. Wade decision. When homosexual marriage is realized — if it is — the groundswell advocacy for legalizing pedophilia will begin.
May God have mercy on our souls.
