A must read column by Vox Day at WorldNetDaily today.

I am going to be writing somewhat more frequently for the next month until things get really busy before our move to SD. I am excited this Fourth of July. I am thinking about independence and all that it means. Not just our independence as a nation, but the freedom that God offers us through His Son, Jesus Christ. It is silly for people to say that America is not a Christian nation, because the very notion that has held this nation together has been a deeply rooted truth of the Christian faith. Which is to say that true Freedom and Liberty can only be maintained with proper form and restraint. Our Founders set us up as a nation of laws that restricted our license, doing whatever we want to do, in order to preserve true freedom. For them, license was the antithesis of liberty. We have lost sight of that in our era, aided by a Supreme Court that continues to find new “rights” which amount to nothing more than justifications for the types of “license” our Founding Fathers understood as destruction for freedom and liberty.
I also want to thank John Rabe for his wonderful blog entry on July 2nd which compares the SCOTUS’ authority to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. I had not thought of it in that light before, and I couldn’t agree more.
