Thornwell on the Virginia Federal Court Overturning State Sodomite Marriage Ban

“They who join the unhallowed crusade against the institutions of the South will have reason to repent, that they have set an engine in motion which cannot be arrested until it has crushed and ground to powder the safeguards of life and property among themselves.”

Dr. James H. Thornwell, 1862

I quote this here because 154 years after Thornwall’s quote above we are still reaping the fruit of that baleful Yankee “French” Revolution as seen in the recent decision in Virginia to overturn a ban against same sex blasphemy.

The crushing and grinding to powder by the latter day abolitionists and Jacobins continues unabated.

One can hold, at one and the same time, that slavery was not a good idea and that the war of Northern aggression was a conflict where the troops of Revolutionary Chaos overthrew the last bastion of Christendom.

The safeguards of life and property that are being torn down in this Virginia decision is the life of those who pursue sodomy as a lifestyle (all statistics report that the average lifespan for these image bearers is considerably shorter that the overall average) and the property that is being crushed and ground to powder is our heritage and lineage. Those who choose this lifestyle steal the Heritage property of the trustee family that went before and of the trustee family that otherwise might have been.

Regarding that Federal Decision from Judge Arenda Wright Allen it is apparent that the intellectual capital of the ruling class has fallen a great deal since the time when Thornwell was a member of that class.

Judge Arenda Wright Allen, the Federal Judge who wrote the opinion in the Virginia case that struck down the Virginia ban on sodomite marriage, claimed the Constitution declares that, “all men are created equal,” which is, instead, the first line of the Declaration of Independence. Well, Federal Judges who make law from the bench can’t all be perfect.

Allen wrote, on the first page of her opinion, “Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal. Surely this means all of us.” Who can argue with such blinding brilliance from the Bench?

For Pete’s sake, we have people serving on the Federal Bench who can’t tell the ruddy difference between the ruddy Declaration of Independence and the ruddy Constitution. WORSE YET, her clerks, who are responsible to review Allen’s legal opinion and provide supporting material for the decision apparently LIKEWISE don’t know the difference.

Next, this bimbo apparently thought that when the Declaration of Independence said “all men are created equal,” that it originally meant ONLY men were created equal with other men. She didn’t realize that “men” here was the plural noun used in 1776 to refer to all mankind.

This asinine stupidity drunk on Malt liquor and high on crack cocaine is stupefying coming from a Federal Judge.

This is the quality of your leadership America. This is the consequence of affirmative action.

  1. Agreed! A Johnson from a century ago with much clearer vision.

    “And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.” – John 9:39

  2. From a “Meet Judge Allen” excerpt:

    “In the latest case, however, she faced a more abstract and historic question than one person’s guilt or innocence. Does the Constitution’s guarantee of “equal protection” mean that same-sex couples should not be denied the ability to wed?

    Wright Allen said it did, in a sweeping opinion that referenced a landmark Supreme Court opinion that struck down statutes banning interracial marriage.”

    When the church began to fight for the legitimacy of miscegenation, they basically made all the arguments for this issue as well. A feature piece in the local paper last weekend was on the acceptance of homosexuals in the “evangelical” churches. It’s comin’…and we’ve already established and legitimized all the necessary arguments to ensure it.

    Well done thou good and…never mind.

  3. Thank you sir, I love to see a man of god jump into the breach. I wish that all preachers had that courage. I wish that all men that call themselves christians would be so bold.
