Chris Ferrara’s book has become the subject of many conversations on the Mike Church Show of late

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Chris Ferrara: Protestant critics of the founding documents weren’t saying the documents were evil in themselves.  They were saying: Yes, you’ve got a great technical form of government here, but the document doesn’t recite any fundamental principles that would guide its interpretation.  It doesn’t invoke divine law as other constitutions have done, either in terms of custom or of documents.  At the nation’s founding, there was some invocation of God, some appeal to higher principles.  What these Protestants were saying in the 19th century was our constitution doesn’t do this.  What is left out, they said — this is mid-19th century — will one day be declared un-American.  Now it’s considered un-American to say that Christian moral principles should govern laws and institutions.  Since the U.S. Constitution is now applied to the states via the Incorporation Doctrine under the Gitlow decision, effectively every state constitution must conform itself to the U.S. Constitution.

Mike:  So it’s over, game over?”…… Check out today’s transcript and Clip of The Day for the rest…

Mike:  Back to the Dude Maker Hotline and Chris Ferrara, author of Liberty, the God That Failed.  The conversation we were having when the gremlins pulled the plug on us, you were right in the middle of explaining the missing element in today’s America or today’s United States and how the average citizen has become a willing participant now and seemingly an imprisoned participant in a closed system, that is…

So the higher constitution, that of the United States, trumps the lower constitution under the Incorporation Doctrine.  So even if you amend Virginia’s constitution, that violates the United States Constitution.  As I point out in the book, Protestant critics of the founding documents weren’t saying the documents were evil in themselves.  They were saying: Yes, you’ve got a great technical form of government here, but the document doesn’t recite any fundamental principles that would guide its interpretation.  It doesn’t invoke divine law as other constitutions have done, either in terms of custom or of documents.  At the nation’s founding, there was some invocation of God, some appeal to higher principles.  What these Protestants were saying in the 19th century was our constitution doesn’t do this.  What is left out, they said — this is mid-19th century — will one day be declared un-American.  Now it’s considered un-American to say that Christian moral principles should govern laws and institutions.  Since the U.S. Constitution is now applied to the states via the Incorporation Doctrine under the Gitlow decision, effectively every state constitution must conform itself to the U.S. Constitution.

Mike:  So it’s over, game over.

Ferrara:  Yeah.  Now we have another problem coming down the pike.  If the states are going to be prevented from defining marriage in accordance with Christian moral principles, then what’s going to happen with the Supreme Court’s decision of upholding gay marriage in New York on the theory that the states have the right to define marriage as they see fit?  As Scalia said in his dissent from that decision: The Supreme Court says today that the states are free to define it any way they please.  They can define it traditionally or non-traditionally.  That’s just the other shoe waiting to drop.
