My friend, we all have a worldview that we support. We all have beliefs that we carry with us and affect everything we do and everything we are. Liberals have a worldview in which God doesn’t exist. The Judeo-Christian view holds a worldview where God exists and we’re accountable to Him.
When Christian judges are asked questions regarding their religious beliefs it presupposes a worldview: that there IS no God and therefore if they bring their worldview they cannot possibly be good justices. In other words, we’re expected to go along with their liberal worldview, where God doesn’t exist.
But, you see, our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values. The Founding Fathers may not have agreed on doctrine, but they mostly agreed that God does exist and our rights are given by Him only.
A liberal worldview is mob-rule: if enough people believe it’s OK to kill kids with Down Syndrome, or the elderly or the sick, then that’s what they expect a justice on the SCOTUS to uphold. This way, God doesn’t give us rights, but rather Government. If Government changes its mind tomorrow, and Christians are to be burnt at the stake, then a liberal justice or judge is expected to go along with it.
But that’s not the way this country was founded. In the Judeo-Christian worldview we leave doctrine discussions for our private lives, but we know, for example, that murder goes against God’s law. And Government has the obligation to protect God’s creation – Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Ideas have consequences. If you believe there is a God, you’re going to live a life that honors Him. And you honor Him by respecting other people’s lives and possessions – after all God says “you shall not kill” and “you shall not steal”. God is a capitalist. God approves of the Constitution of the United States.
If, on the other hand, you believe there is no God, then not only will you live as if you didn’t have to respond to Him, but you’re enabling others to do the same. So if someone kills you tomorrow legally, based on your race or your age or whatever other reason, liberals will be OK with it. Your life isn’t protected. Remember, in a mob-rule, if enough people vote to “cleanse” this country of “deplorables” and “undesirables”, you might fall under their category and there’s nobody to protect you.
Let me be clear – only one of these two worldviews has to be correct, from a logical standpoint. Two contradictory statements cannot possibly be both true – either God exists or He doesn’t. But, you see, the God I’m talking about is not some creation in our minds. We’re talking about a Being that exists APART from us – whether you believe He exists or not. He’s self-existent, eternal, immutable, holy, omnipresent, omniscient and almighty. He’s transcendent, in the sense that He’s SUPERIOR to us in order of being. This is God. All theists agree with this proposition. He is a necessary being, without whom nothing else could possibly be. We’re EFFECTS. And He is the CAUSE. Aristotle called Him “the first cause” of things. He knew that nothing that exists today could possibly exist if somewhere, somehow there wasn’t a being with the power of being within himself. If there ever was a time when nothing existed (no space, no matter, no God), what could possibly exist today? Nothing, of course.
Ideas have consequences. The Judeo-Christian worldview is the Western Civilization worldview. We remove God from our way of life, we become barbarians.
Here’s the exchange between Senator Graham and SCOTUS nominee ACB during the Senate Hearings:
"GRAHAM: Let's talk about the two Supreme Court cases regarding abortion. What are the two leading cases in America regarding abortion?
BARRETT: Most people think of Roe V. Wade, and Casey is the case after Roe that preserved Roe’s central holding but grounded it in a slightly different rationale.
GRAHAM: So what is that rationale?
BARRETT: Rationale is that the state cannot impose an undue burden on a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy.
GRAHAM: Unlike Brown, there are states challenging on the abortion front. There’re states that are going to a fetal heartbeat bill. I have a bill, Judge, that would disallow abortion on demand after 20 weeks, the fifth month of the pregnancy. We're one of seven nations in the entire world that allow abortion on demand at the fifth month. The construct of my bill is because a child is capable of feeling pain in the fifth month, doctors tell us to save the child's life, you have to provide anesthesia if you operate, because they can feel pain. The argument I’m making is if you have to provide anesthesia to save the child’s life, ‘cause they can feel pain, it must be a terrible death to be dismembered by an abortion. That's a theory to protect the unborn at the fifth month. If that litigation comes before you, will you listen to both sides?
BARRETT: Of course, I'll do that in every case.
GRAHAM: So I think 14 states have already passed a version of what I described. So there really is a debate in America still unlike Brown versus Board of Education about the rights of the unborn. That's just one example. So if there is a challenge coming from a state, if a state passes a law and it goes into court where people say this violates Casey, how do you decide that?
BARRETT: Well, it would begin in a district court in a trial court. The trial court would make a record. The parties would litigate and fully develop that record in the trial court. Then it would go up to an appeals court that would review that record looking for error, and then again, it would be the same process. Someone would have to seek certiorari at the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court would have to grant it, and at that point it would be the full judicial process. It would be briefs, oral argument, conversations with law clerks in chambers, consultation with colleagues, writing an opinion, really digging down into it. It's not just a vote. You all do that. You all have a policy, and you cast a vote. The judicial process is different."
