Constitutional attorney William Ball asserted that there is a court that is higher than the United States Supreme Court; it is the court of “public opinion.” What he was referring to was the foundation of our way of life — government that is of, by, and for the people.

This experiment in government was historically unprecedented, the success of which depended upon the worldview that human opinion could never provide the unity necessary for civilization. Consensus could only be achieved through a common acceptance that morality and government issued by God to the individual.

If this common belief diminished, then freedom would no longer be granted to the individual from God. Freedom would then be determined by the state and the elitist view of what would be best for the population. “Bottom up government” by the people has been reversed to “top down government,” determined by the ruling elite. 

Treason against our way of life is being accomplished through voter fraud, immigration without walls, state-controlled education, lawmakers who exempt themselves from law, being a law unto themselves, and judicial activist judges. 

Until the plant bed of this liberalism is recognized, there is no remedy for ignorance of true American history and the basis for our way of life. Education must be returned to the private sector where the Christian viewpoint has free course.

LBGTQ, transgender, and bathroom-user issues are indicative of the moral confusion being taught in our public schools and universities. Legalizing these behaviors does not make them right. These trends are just another strategy for destroying the moral foundation of our Country. Scripture says, “Seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children (Hosea 4:6).” Think, people!

The author's theology is antithetical to self-government. I believe in self-determination. And I would rather not base my science or moral code on the writings of men who had no idea where the sun goes at night.

Dwight missed his calling as an accident of birth (born 450 years, or so, too late) He would have been a loyal and enthusiastic member of the Spanish Inquisition ("What do you mean there's no one left to torture into becoming a member of the true faith. There's gotta be some Jews out there, go out and find 'em, my flailing arm isn't even tired. If you can't find any, grab someone suspected of not praying sincerely enough about how Jesus loves us one an all. I'll teach them how to pray, by god!)

Flannery O'Connor couldn't have conjured a more perfect protagonist.
