We all have innocent blood on our hands
Letter to Chief Justice Renquist of the
U.S. Supreme court on March 25, 2005
Date: March 24, 2005
To: Chief Justice Renquist
Supreme Court of the United States
Washington, DC 20543
Subject: We all have innocent blood on our hands
Dear Chief Justice Renquist,
I watched in stunned disbelief as your court and other lower ones turned its back on Terri Schiavo, and allowed the butchers in Florida to try to kill her (as of this writing sheís not dead yet, but by the time you receive this she may be). I was especially surprised and shocked to learn that you agreed with this decision. David Barton and otherís have consistently pointed to you as the justice on the Supreme Court who was most adamant that our founding fathers intended for this to be a Christian nation. A Christian nation would never have allowed these barbarians to have committed such a heinous crime against a totally defenseless woman. I donít mean to be disrespectful, but in all your studying did you ever come across this Bible verse? It speaks very directly to this situation.
And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city, And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who [is] with you in the judgment. wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do [it]: for [there is] no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.
2 Chronicles 19:5-7 (KJV)
Do you understand the profound implications of this command from God Himself to all judges? It means that you are first and foremost accountable to Him, not to the constitution, not to the politicians and not even to the citizens of this country. Your position is a sacred God-given one, and you are acting on behalf of God Almighty Himself. He is "with you" in your judgments (if you seek his counsel, and will abide by it). Do you sincerely believe that if Jesus Christ were sitting in the room with you that he would tell you to stand aside and watch her be killed? Killing for self-defense is permitted by God. Killing for euthanasia clearly is not. Even if Terri did want to die, suicide is also forbidden by God, so you would have been obligated to oppose it if you were following Godís will. I think one would have to engage in some pretty serious Bible interpretation back-flips to try to get the Bible to agree with killing a defenseless person, or for allowing anyone to commit suicide for any reason.
You, the other Supreme Court justices and the lower courts clearly put secular interests over Godís will in this case. I believe you will all answer to God for what you did on Judgment Day. If she dies, you will all have innocent blood on your hands. What a tragic way to end a long and distinguished career. Like the apostle Peter who three times denied Jesus because his fear of men was stronger than his fear of God, this court will go down in history as the one with the cowardly secularist judges who feared men more than they feared God.
Before you think Iím picking on you, Iíll confess to you that I too have innocent blood on my hands if she dies, because until this last election, I wasnít following Godís commands to me either as far as how we are to choose public officials was concerned. Like probably 99% of Americans today, I have been in direct violation of this command:
Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place [such] over them, [to be] rulers of thousands, [and] rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:
I have switched my party affiliation to the Constitution Party, because their party alone places these God mandated litmus tests front and center. However, prior to that, it was people like me who voted in the politicians who for the most part have refused to apply this God mandated litmus test to the judges they appointed to the Supreme Court and lower courts. As a nation we all deserve to answer to God on Judgment Day. We also richly deserve his chastisement today. Many Christians already believe that God is chastising this nation, and that itís only going to get worse because we still continue to do things like this, and we continue to avoid putting Him front and center. Itís probably too late to save Terri. But I would beg you to consider the sacred position you and the other justices have, to ask Godís forgiveness for what you all did, and to consider going public with an apology to Terriís family, and to our Lord.
I will keep you in my prayers. I also invite you to visit these links on my web site, which were forwarded to several members of the local and national media earlier today. They delve into this issue in more depth. May our Lord truly be "with you" in this hour of darkness in our nationís history, and may he forgive you, and give you the strength and courage to serve Him as He would have you to, regardless of the opinions of men.
