The “In God We Trust” Mayflower Compact emphasizing separation from compromise with secular god-wannabe ideologs was the first written framework for the government of the United States. It was signed by 41 English colonists on November 11, 1620. From 1620 to around 1955, when liberal tenured law school professors succeeded in overpowering the “In God We Trust” Common Law, is 335 years.
The harmful influence of controlling Darwinian Case Law Precedents advanced by law schools and the harmful affect on public education is reflected in McLean v. Arkansas.
John Stuart Mill was a foremost English advocate for human equality, freedom and human well-being in the nineteenth century. His views compare with the realistic definitions for law emphasized by William Blackstone and John Locke. William Blackstone’s four-volume Commentaries on the Laws of England was adopted as the basis for law in America.
Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England regarding Common Law reads, “Man, considered as a creature, must necessarily be subject to the laws [natural laws which sustain life] of his Creator. These laws laid down by God are the eternal immutable laws of good and evil. This Common Law of nature dictated by God Himself is of course superior in obligation to any other [imposed by god-wannabes]. It is binding over the entire globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity if contrary to this.”
Common Law—Genesis 1:1 and 1:31, the natural law is the most important body of law. Its value reflects the experience of the ages, the people’s customs inspired by men’s consciences, the Bible and self-evident nature of cause and effect. American Presidents take their oath of office with their hands on the Bible. Honorable judges are to be law finders, not law makers.
Universal principles in Divine Law for government do exist. William Blackstone’s commentaries were used by Abraham Lincoln and continued to be the basis for law in America into the early 1900s. As late as 1950, President Harry S. Truman, emphasized the Bible as the basis for our laws.
Case Law—Black’s (Henry Campbell Black, 1860-1927) Law Dictionary began to dominate the law dictionary market in 1960. It is now used more than any other source by law schools. The 1912 Edition through the Tenth Edition, 2014, appear to be clearly secularized. One of the definitions reads, “A case becomes a precedent only for such a general rule as is necessary to the actual decision reached, when shorn of unessential circumstances.” Black’s dictionary has been edited eight times since his death in 1927.
President Truman emphasized Higher Authority Common Law Precedent that leads to community harmony and American Exceptionalism. Case Law forced the secularization of behavioral and American history studies in local public schools throughout the nation. The harm from Case Law court decisions is both the secularization of the case and that the judgments may have Precedent-setting value. Imposing judgments then depend upon the judge’s political opinion of his or her role as a judge and the ideological and political instincts of the judge, thus opening the door to god-wannabe tyranny.
The United States Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787. Traditional American Common Law prevailed until around 1955—168 years later. Since the liberals’ cultural war surge, starting in 1955, we have seen the growing impact harmful to families.
