I continue to read about the pedophile website that has disgusted many, including myself, and rocked most of western Washington. I read that the site is down now but the rhetoric regarding freedom of speech continues. While many are disgusted and few approve of this site most seem to agree that he is guaranteed his right to freedom of speech and his right to operate this site.
I wish to disagree with his “right” to freedom of speech in this case. Our constitution was written for the governing of a moral people in a moral nation. Freedom of speech should not be construed to mean freedom to condone and promote immoral behavior. The freedom to speak in favor of immorality is not the intent of the guarantee. Our founding fathers feared God.
Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for Liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, They may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting Liberty. They will only exchange Tyrants and Tyrannies.
John Adams (June 21, 1776)
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other.
John Adams (October 11, 1798)
It was very interesting to read the Herald’s opinion section today because they have outlined a template for Satan’s work in our world. Only they know whether this was accidental, purposeful or perhaps…. divinely inspired!
But even worse, he seems to be among a movement of pedophiles who seek to normalize and legitimize their abhorrent behavior with the long-term goal of having their predatory abuse of children become legalized. Pedophile’s Web site a disturbing reminder
I call this a template because we can easily apply the same language to behavior like abortion, homosexuality or others and pose the same argument against legalizing and validating those immoral behaviors. Our society is constantly struggling with laws that seek to control behavior that should be controlled by morality not legality. And moral laws that we have made and will make will be both woefully inadequate and redundant. God has spoken his law. It’s up to our nation to continue to follow it.
For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Let’s resist sin, not validate it.
