Tennessee County Drafts Resolution Begging to Be Spared From God’s Wrath
One of the great myths of conservatism is that “local control” is our best protection from tyranny and in particular from the overarching power and evil of the federal government.
More and more people are beginning to realize that it is historically at the local and state level where the worst abuses and the greatest corruption have occurred. Federal power has reached such enormous levels largely because local and state officials have repeatedly failed to respect the Constitution or even obey the law. From Jim Crow and the various corrupt political machines of our history to the recent outbursts of local theocracy, all tyranny may not be local but that is where the tyrants and fascists have the best chance of getting away with it. They know this and I think it is the underlying reason for their hatred of the feds. If it were up to local government, there would be no OSHA, no EPA, no voting rights, no unions, no minimum wage, no protection from abuse of every kind in many areas. The thieving grifter classes could pillage and exploit to their heart’s content without the federal government. No wonder they hate it so much.
Apparently the Blount County Board of Commissioners is being asked to consider a resolution begging that God spare the county, and the region surrounding it, from his wrath following the Supreme Court’s June decision that legalized same-sex marriage in the United States.
You know what, nothing I say can even come close to describing the actual insanity of this proposal put forth by Commissioner Karen Miller, so I’ll just let it speak for itself:
Whereas, the Governor, Attorney General, and ALL WE Blount County Legislators have sworn an oath consistent with the moral Law of God (“So Help Me God”) to uphold the Constitution of Tennessee and the Constitution of the United States; and Whereas, the fulfillment of this oath, in the American tradition, may not be read to contradict the written Constitution, Justice, Reason and higher Natural Law.
Federal judges have once again usurped powers not delegated to them, and have violated Reason, the Rule of Law and Natural Law by purporting to strike down State laws and acts of the People recognizing and protecting Natural Marriage.
WE adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities. As the Passover Lamb was a means of salvation to the ancient Children of Israel, so we stand upon the safety of the Lamb of God to save us. WE adopt this Resolution begging His favor in light of the fact that we have been forced to comply and recognize that the State of Tennessee, like so many other God-fearing States, MAY have fallen prey to a lawless judiciary in legalizing what God and the Bible expressly forbids
