Law, This Is It!

Oh Lord, Not Contempt of Court

2 min read

Final night although observing Hannity & Colmes on Fox News (10-26-2006), a segment featured an African American man who was held in contempt of courtroom for saying “Oh Lord.” What is actually going on listed here? Is this even now not the United States of The us, in which the U.S. Supreme Court opens their every day periods with the invocation: “God help save the United States and this Honorable Courtroom.”

I didn’t hear what condition courtroom this gentleman appeared in, but my hunch is it was somewhere in California. Most likely that decide forgot that engraved in stone higher than the head of the United States Chief Justice are the 10 Commandments. Moses is also provided among the good lawgivers in Herman A. MacNeil’s marble-sculpture reduction on the East Portico in situation their is any question as to where individuals Ten Commandments originated.

Our national Declaration of Independence uphold our God-supplied legal rights. These inherent rights have in no way been more happily expressed than in the Declaration of Independence, which states: “We keep these truths to be self-evident that all gentlemen are endowed by their Creator with particular inalienable legal rights and that between these are daily life, liberty and the pursuit of contentment, and to safe these”–not grant them but safe them–“governments are instituted among the adult males.”

United Supreme Court 1844, in the circumstance of Vidal v. Girard’s Executors, 43 U.S. 126, 132, Justice Joseph Story sent the court’s feeling. The circumstance involved 1 Stephen Girard, a deist from France, who had moved to Philadelphia and afterwards died. In his will he remaining he full estate, valued at over $7 million, to establish an orphanage and college, with the stipulation that no religious affect be permitted. The metropolis turned down the proposal, as their attorneys stated:

“The strategy of instruction proposed is anti-Christian, and thus repugnant to the regulation….”

United States Supreme Court February 29, 1892, in the case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 143 US 457-458, 465-471, 36 L ed 226, Justice Josiah Brewer rendered the substantial court’s final decision stating:

“The Declaration of Independence recognizes the presence of the Divine in human affairs. …The contentment of a folks and the superior buy and preservation of civil government fundamentally rely upon piety, faith and morality. …Faith, morality, and awareness [are] required to very good government, the preservation of liberty, and the pleasure of mankind.”

The judge who just lately could not belly “Oh Lord” in his court docket would do perfectly to remember that the independence of expression is upheld in the initially amendment of the Constitution. Also it is traditionally acknowledged and documented all through our countrywide heritage that we are a Christian, God-fearing nation. This decide acted dishonorably and ought to be held of contempt of court docket, not the citizen who claimed “Oh Lord.”
