II.5 Right to Profess the Founding Truths of Natural Religion

Supreme Court

Suppression of the Founding Truths

The republic rests on religious truths that are known to the ordinary powers of the human mind. These truths do not form any part of an establishment of religion because they belong to no church, temple, synagogue, or mosque. The First Amendment does not apply to the philosophy of Deism. The Supreme Court errs badly when it separates the citizens from the founding truths of their own country.

The Supreme Court does not see the difference between religious truths that are evident to reason and those that depend on faith in supernatural revelation. As a result, the founding truths have been banned from our nation's public life. We cannot honor them in our public ceremonies, teach them in our public schools, or join them to our public laws.

Supreme Court

Tyranny of the Judiciary

The First Amendment begins: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” The Supreme Court has interpreted this to mean that it excludes all religious truth from our nation's public life. The Court believes, absurdly, that the First Amendment suppresses the founding truths of our country!

To use the power of the law to suppress the founding truths is tyrannical. Those who seek to eradicate these truths from public life undermine the foundation of our political union. The Supreme Court, through its false and absurd interpretation of the Constitution, has infringed on the inalienable right of the people to publicly profess whatever religious truths a majority finds agreeable to reason. The Court has infringed on the sacred right of religious liberty.

Freedom to Profess
Natural Religion

The Supreme Court cannot forbid the American people from joining together in the public profession of whatever truths they agree are evident to the ordinary powers of the human mind. No one believes the First Amendment bans our founding conviction that God is the author of our rights. No one believes that the Constitution bans the Declaration of Independence. The First Amendment separates from public life only the doctrines of private religious organizations that transcend reason.

The truths of the Declaration of Independence have been defended and developed by the greatest political minds of our republic. The people of the United States are free, by right of nature, to join together in the public profession of these truths as the first principles of their republic.
