Let's make it simple.  Hard and fast rule: Governments don't give people rights; Governments take rights away.

The Constitution does not give people rights.  Not to citizens.  Not to illegals.

What the Constitution does do is restrict the government from taking away certain rights.  Well, if you're a citizen.  If you're not, then the Constitution probably doesn't apply to you, so the gubmint can do what it wants to you if you happen to show up on its turf.

So where do we get our rights from?  "All men...are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights."

Thank you.  ::hug:: Great post.  ::clappingoverhead:: Finally someone recognizes the operation of the Constitution.

Lets look :

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense,  promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Think about this:
      1.  Cows
      2. The Constitution
      3. The Ten Commandments


--------------------------------------------------------------

COWS
      Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

--------------------------------------------------------------
THE CONSTITUTION
      They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for  Iraq  ... Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.

--------------------------------------------------------------

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS


      The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a government building is this --you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of politicians.... it creates a hostile work environment.

Apparently many of you here didn't get the memo...............we no longre refer to that particular  parchment of misinformation as The U.S. Constitution. 


HERE-YE, HERE-YE, HERE-YE, NO LONGER SHALL WE CELEBRATE THE AFOREMNETIONED PARCHMENT!  FROM THIS DAY FORTH WE SHALL CELEBRATE THE "MAGNA CARTA OF THE UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA".  All citizens, non-citizens (and even you guys hiding in that gully just outside of Phoenix) shall bow to Obama the Great and will swear alliegence to the same, under penalty of death!

.............................ok, I know, I'm being silly..........uh, well, maybe, WE'LL SEE......... ::frustrated::



in His name......... ::amen!::

A Tale of Four Ships

Once upon a time there were four ships – (1) the USS Constitution, (2) the USS Titanic, (3) the USS California, and (4) the USS Carpathia. 

The USS Constitution represents the USA as God intended for her to be, “a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere.

Seems like a lot of updating over the years.........  A little back tracking, then some more updating.......... More flip flopping than a Jehovah Witness church history lesson.....lol

@ what point did it become perfect???

After slavery??

After women got the vote??

After Native Americans got citizenship??

After jim crow finally died in the 60's???

 ::cool::

No one said it was perfect.  But that doesn't give every liberal judge the right to change it just because he doesn't think it is perfect.  If it needs to be changed, there are appropriate provisions made in the constitution itself to change it.  It is not for some yay hoo sitting on the ninth circuit to change it.

It seems my post was removed???

IF that is the case this will likely be my last post as I do not want to participate on a Christian board that would delete something like that...  One can come here & question God but not a man made document???  lol

Exactly it is not perfect, nor will it ever be...  It has been & will always be very fallible & subject to interpretation & implementation..........  Que sera sera..

But it is not to be changed by anyone - only by the provisions established for that.  If it can be changed by every Tom, Dick and Harry who sits on a bench it is of no use whatsoever to anyone for anything.

freedom of religion how precious to the christian how we have noticed what goes on in other countries that does not have this.

But that is certainly subjective........  I would think various changes have been made & many thought those making these changes unqualified & mistaken.........

I do not have issue w/ the document itself, as flawed as it maybe or the interpretations of it may seem.......

For me the issue is really about Christians focusing on & relying on this man made document........  IMHO they should focus on Christ----->>> First & foremost NOT THE CONSTITUTION....

As anyone can clearly see it is not logical even from a secular prospective..... 

One need only look @ murder.......... If on Tuesday I hit my neighbors wife in the tummy & cause her "fetus" to die I can be charged w/ murder.......... If that did not happen & on the next day Wednesday she decided to abort the baby it would not be a crime....

If anyone, especially Christians are looking to a system or document that can have such blaring inconsistencies, well may the Lord help them.....

You are correct it is inconsistent and poorly interpreted. It is a poor interpretation that there is some right to privacy in the constitution that allows for the slaughter of unborn children. Any mother who would intentionally rip their unborn child limb from limb should be held for aggravated murder and given the death sentence.

I agree.......

 A woman does not get pregnant by her self that would make 'him' an assoraery  to the crime.

Simply getting one pregnant does not make one an accessory to the crime. It is an absurd idea. Only when the man takes part in the abortion does he become an accessory. Becoming pregnant is not the crime. Slaughtering the unborn child is. Not sure why this is so difficult to grasp.
