Is John Kerry Insane?

“Human societies cannot, without becoming criminal, act as if God did not exist or refuse to concern themselves with religion, as though it were something foreign to them, or of no purpose to them…As for the Church, which has God Himself for its author, to exclude her from the active life of the nation, from the laws, the education of the young, the family, is to commit a great and pernicious error.”
--Leo XIII, in 1884

The separation of Church and State has reached a point where it has become an abomination, a tool for the mentally deformed among us and contrary to the Founding Fathers intentions. This is why Islam insists upon the union of church and state, which in our eyes is an error but nonetheless constitutes a reaction to a totally artificial and unsustainable barrier between common sense and reality. If a country's laws are not informed by moral principles rooted in some sort of Deism, there will be no reason for laws at all, except the laws themselves, which would hardly be a reason for anything. Without God why not stick a fork in your neighbor’s eyes or head, or relieve him or her of their possessions? Why not rob and rape the other members of your community? Without God there really is little reason not to engage whatever base instincts happen to rise within.

I had an interesting discussion with a retired criminal attorney from the US on the Pampas of Argentina. He said the system of law that we have exists not for justice but for the system itself. He himself had gotten two murderers off the hook who subsequently went about their business and killed again. His reaction? He couldn’t connect the dots to his own stupidity or to that of the system for which he worked. Flash to Diane Feinstein arguing for the morality of partial birth abortion or John Kerry bellowing about the greatest Senator in the history of Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy, the drunken murder of Chapaquiddick. The most notorious, yes but the greatest? John Kerry needs to be removed from politics before he hurts himself.
