Curbing the Courts:
Lessons from Columbine
High School


In the midst of the grief and horror caused by the Columbine High School massacre, a question heard repeatedly is "Why?" In response to that question, we should pose some additional questions:

  1. Activist/liberal federal judges have long been fighting to expunge every vestige of God from our nation’s classrooms and public life. Why, therefore, shouldn’t our children assume that there is ultimately no One to whom they are accountable, freeing them to behave as they choose?
  2. Activist/liberal federal judges have long been upholding the exclusive teaching of evolutionism to our children--that all of us are simply higher forms of animals who have evolved from lower forms. Why, therefore, shouldn’t our children behave like animals?
  3. Activist/liberal federal judges have long been battling to convert abnormal and immoral behavior into conduct that is normal and moral. Why, therefore, shouldn’t our children conclude that other abnormal and immoral conduct, such as homosexuality, is now normal and moral?
  4. Activist/liberal federal judges have long been elevating to a superior constitutional status the "right" of a woman to kill  her unborn, or partially-born, child. Why, therefore, shouldn’t our children conclude that they, too, have the right to kill the children around them?

As we grieve over the losses of Columbine High School, perhaps we should also grieve that America’s activist/liberal federal judges have sown the wind, but it is our children who are reaping the whirlwind. Surely it is time for us to CURB THE COURTS and reclaim our children and our country.
