In a video posted on Worth Reading, Calderon is quoted as saying of Arizonas' immigration law, "It is a law that not only ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree..." (See video: http://worthreading.ning.com/video/video/show?id=5061658:Video:19947&xgs=1&xg_source=msg_share_video )
Do not be deceived by Calderons' seemingly reasonable stance, for it is not rational but rather irrational. It is irrational precisely because it is the outworking of thought filtered through disordered passion--of desire---rather than of the dispassionate clear thinking and logic that results only from impulse-control and commitment to enduring truths, moral law, and principle.
Calderon hypocritically speaks of reality, which itself reflects enduring truths, when what he really embraces is flux---the continuous change resulting from the restlessness and boredom that gnaws within the soul of every morally and intectually immature terrible-infant in an adult-size body. Translated, what Calderon is really saying is that laws ought to be changeable according to what we want when we want it, or more precisely, what disordered Liberals desire when they desire it.
Consider for example, the chaos that would ensue if the rules on which football, basketball, golf, and baseball were subject to change in accord with the desires of resentful, envious, greedy players, fans, franchise owners, bureaucrats, or government officials. Should this come to pass, a disgruntled player could demand that foul balls be redefined as 'alternative home runs.'
And why should this subversion of rules not come to pass when already we have accepted as valid the desires and consequent demands of males and females who, controlled by disordered impulses and compulsions, have demanded and received redefinition as 'gays'? And on the basis of this insanity, they have been accorded rights protected by paralegalistic hate crime laws. In acquiesing to this disorder, we will find ourselves blackmailed into accepting another and another and another until finally, sanity will have given place entirely to insanity.
Either truth, morality, laws, and rules have enduring meaning or they do not. If they do not, which is the stance of todays' immoralists, then truth, morality, laws, and rules are to be made up as we go along, according to what we want when we want it. And by extension of this view, Americas' founding documents---the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Rule of Law are as meaningless as the politically correct paralegalisms, inverted truths, and paramoralisms made up by the immoralists who increasingly control our government, universities, judiciary, media, entertainment industry, unions, and seminaries at every level of society and are forcing their insanity onto all of us.
Whereas America was founded as a Constitutional Republic firmly grounded on transcendent immutable truths, universal moral law, and natural law that is not from man but from mans' transcendent Creator, which means that man is not at liberty to change any of it for man is not the transcendent Creator, todays' America more nearly resembles the democracies the Founders abhorred and warned future generations against:
"[D]emocracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths." --James Madison, Federalist No. 10, 1787
John Adams makes clear that those individuals possessed of the greatest will to power will soon seize control of a democracy after which it is assuredly doomed to collapse of its' own corrupt weight:
"[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few." --John Adams, An Essay on Man's Lust for Power, 1763
The Psalmist laments: "What are the righteous to do when the foundations have been destroyed?"
This is the untenable position todays' righteous must contend with, for immoralists---vice squads of evil--- have virtually destroyed the foundations of our nation. Having removed the transcendent Creator and put themselves in His place, they have successfully rendered meaningless all of this nations' enduring truths, unalienable rights, morality, and law and by extension, property rights, traditions, institutions, holidays, language, and national boundaries. In short, the foundational 'glue' that defined good from evil, truth from lie, normal from abnormal and which held us together, defining and shaping Americans and America has been destroyed by immoralists.
That immoralists like Calderon have not bothered to read Arizonas' recently passed immigration law comes as no surprise. Why bother reading it when he and his fellow immoralists already know that it is not what they personally desire? ...Linda
