Notre Dame scholastic deep dive

If American jurisprudence seems torn between the hard cold evidence in an eighteenth century text and a sensitive development of legislation the nomination of a judge to the supreme court with a specific set of expectations then a deep dive into injustice and tyranny is in the making.

Law, like gospel, has no partisan streak

It is more than strange that lawyers know less about the recent American constitution than they do about the text of the Greek New Testament. They cannot agree.  Greek does not  lend itself to personal interpretation.  It gets weirder when we realize that pastors claim to know more about the American constitution than they do about the text of the Greek New Testament, not because they know 18th century American English so well.

The open hostility between religion and American politics can never be erased.  The constitution cannot be at the same time a living document- capable of growing and becoming more focused – and dead fixed standard.

Fools rush in to believe that lawyers do not know for sure what the law says and justice gets delayed.

Individual responsibility has traditionally melted into the background.  As the record of both conscience and protest has shown revolutionary vision cannot be in bed with tradition.  One might be convinced that the best revolutionary or protest stance is to flee as the Pilgrim Fathers of the United States did, but failing to include the right to free speech and the right to bear arms only shows that these were not priorities to the founding fathers.

The bridge between commander in chief and his troops is a broken roadway: the people he calls Christian allies and the fallen soldiers he calls losers are one and the same.

The distance between an independent judge and the president does not exist

All the American English grammar in the world has made interpretation of the 18th century constitution neither easier nor accurate. One has to be a raving lunatic or seriously brainwashed to believe that the current chaos of disparate Christian beliefs is not the direct result of pastors neglecting our original documents. I do not exaggerate. The distance between the apostles and the modern expositor remains as long as dishonest men and women are satisfied with labels such as conservative, liberal, leftist, and right-wing. The fact of corrupt incompetence among lawyers and religious leaders is not without precedent, and their collusion to oppress the poor is out in the open.

Precedent on the precipice

Isaiah 29:10

For the Lord has poured over you a spirit of deep sleep, He has shut your eyes, the prophets; And He has covered your heads, the seers.

It surely looks noble to say that the supreme court has judges interpretating law and judges making law, but the facts are that neither side should have any difficulty discovering the intent of the writers of constitution (or ite amendments). Sadly, the church has way too many bogus scholars with megaphones, who do not even agree that our safeguard is the original text of our documents, and way too many scholars who are great at producing lists of what the quality life looks like, but who neglect the original and settle for peer commentary.

Isaiah 29:11, Literate Precedent

The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed book, which when they give it to the one who is literate, saying, “Please read this,” he will say, “I cannot, for it is sealed.”

Isaiah 29:12, Illiterate Precedent

Then the book will be given to the one who is illiterate, saying, “Please read this.” And he will say, “I cannot read.”

Isaiah 29:13, Repetitive Spin and Hype

Then the Lord said, “Because this people draw near with their words And honor Me with their lip service, But they remove their hearts far from Me, And their reverence for Me consists of tradition learned by rote,
