justice 10, righteous 8, righteously 3, right 3, righteous cause 1, unrighteousness 1, miscellaneous 2.

—Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary

In 1892 in the Supreme Court case of HOLY TRINITY CHURCH v. U.S. 143 U.S. 457, 12 S.Ct. 511, 36 L.Ed. 226 February 29, 1892. In the Court Opinion it was stated “These and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.”

In 1963 a law suit was filed “the Pennsylvania School District of Abington Township v. Schempp” This case involved yet another voluntary activity by students: the use of the Scriptures. At issue was a Pennsylvania policy which stated:

Each school… shall be opened by the reading, without comment, of a chapter in the Holy Bible. … Participation in the opening exercises is voluntary. The student reading the verses from the Bible may select the passages and read from any version he chooses. Abington at 211, n. 4, 207

The Court further explained:

There are no prefatory statements, no questions asked or solicited, no comments or explanations made and no interpretations given at or during the exercises. The students and parents are advised that the student may absent himself from the classroom or, should he elect to remain, not participate in the exercises. Abington at 207 more information on this case at http://members.aol.com/EndTheWall/Educ_Bible.htm

The point is to understand what justice is and without the proper application there of is detrimental to society as a whole, two questions comes to mind. Are you willing to allow correct and proper justice to be lost? Are you willing to have your children and your children’s children suffer the consequences and loss of freedom God intended for The United States of America?

The choice is yours to make united we stand and divided we fall…
