Creating Parents With A Judicial Magic Wand

by Chuck Colson - February 27th, 2007 - Townhall.com

Isabella Miller-Jenkins is only four years old, but she is at the center of one of the most important legal battles of our time. A judge will soon decide whether a woman with no biological or adoptive ties to Isabella can legally be declared her mother.

It sounds incredible, but it is the logical result of where our anything-goes society has been leading us all these years.

As the Washington Post reports, Isabella was conceived via artificial insemination while her mother, Lisa Miller, was in a same-sex civil union with Janet Jenkins. But later the civil union fell apart. Lisa took Isabella and left Vermont for Virginia. She also returned to the Christian faith of her childhood and became "determined to 'leave the [lesbian] lifestyle'." That meant that she no longer considered Janet to be Isabella’s parent.

But in our reckless pursuit of getting whatever we want at all costs, our nation has begun interpreting the law in a way that reinforces all the fictions that Lisa Miller no longer believes.

Our courts bend over backward to find ways to interpret laws so that justice (as religious believers see it) is denied to our citizens and the amoral beliefs of atheists shall prevail. They call this "the rule of judges". This ruling is typical of the abuse of logic practiced where parenthood is concerned.

As an example of the injustice that is normal in our courts, consider the case of a faithless wife. She conceives a child by a lover, while still having sex with her husband. Her pregnancy is thus an insult to her husband as she has cuckolded him even though he doesn't know it. Later when she divorces him he discovers that the child is not his. The courts have ruled that he is still the parent for child support purposes but frequently not the parent for custody purposes.

The real father can claim his custody rights, but is not required to pay child support in most circumstances. Don't believe it? Just check into some of the ridiculous court rulings our judiciary has created . . . rulings which have been affirmed by the supreme court.

There is no justice in America. The courts are corrupt.

Detainees Can't Challenge Cases

by Matt Apuzzo - February 20th, 2007 - Associated Press (Breitbart.com)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Guantanamo Bay detainees may not challenge their detention in U.S. courts, a federal appeals court said Tuesday in a ruling upholding a key provision of a law at the center of President Bush's anti- terrorism plan.

The problem is that this small victory for common sense will probably not prevail when it gets in front of the tyrannical power mongers on the Supreme Court. Even with two new members appointed by Bush, the court balance still leans toward the socialists view that the court must embrace politically correct non-sense and ignore safety and concern for our survival.

The rule of judges is most likely the long term decision as this reasonable decision gets over-turned.
