        Book Discussion with Bruce Ledewitz '77, Professor of Law Duquesne University School of Law with Commentary by Samuel Moyn, Professor of History, Columbia University; Irving S. Ribicoff Visiting Professor Yale Law School Yeshiva student turned secularist, Bruce Ledewitz seeks common ground for believers and nonbelievers regarding the law of church and state. He argues that allowing government to promote higher law values through the use of religious imagery would resolve the current impasse in the interpretation of the Establishment Clause. It would offer secularism an escape from its current tendency toward relativism in its dismissal of all that religion represents and encourage a deepening of the expression of meaning in the public square without compromising secular conceptions of government.

                • Lord God The Establishment Clause-


                  from The_Watchman / Added

                  The Establishment Clause: Don't Pause; Know the Clause! God's right to Establish There is an establishment clause in our Constitution, one that many fight over its true meaning. This study is not about that clause to the Constitution. This is the Established Clause of the LORD God. 2Sa 7:14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 2Sa 7:15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. This is about The LORD God who establishes and decree’s makes and creates, in righteousness he does rule and by his hand all things exist and consist. Now the Establishment clause of all laws and man, that is; there is a LORD God who rules. These are some of his Established decrees. The Establishment Clause has Established: "God's Right to Rule", even if man don't think he has that right, believe me he does! The Establishment Clause: The Lord God has established his righteousness and justice in that he can Judge the earth, the nations, and all men before him who stand in the earth. The Lord God can do this and save those who he has deemed worthy to live, while destroying the unworthy.
