In Proverbs 22:28, God said, “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”

When the nation of Israel crossed the Jordan and possessed the Promise Land, the land was divided equally among the 12 tribes so each family’s inheritance was clearly marked on its four corners with landmarks – what we would call today a surveyor’s benchmark. They were never to be moved.

These benchmarks clearly defined the four corners of every man’s property so his family could perpetually enjoy the privacy and right to follow after life, liberty and the pursuit of free enterprise.

For anyone to move or remove the ancient landmarks was to deprive that family of their inalienable rights – the freedom of life, the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion and the freedom of free enterprise – the Four Landmarks of American Society – any society.

God placed a severe curse upon anyone for moving the ancient landmarks (Job 24:2) because such action would deprive and encroach upon future generations from reaping the full benefits of freedom. To remove a landmark was a felony.

Over the past 60 years, the Supreme Court has been engaged in felonious activities by redefining, moving and removing the Four Ancient Landmarks our Founding Fathers set for their descendants over 400 years ago at Plymouth Rock. The very landmarks the justices are entrusted to guard.

Beginning in 1954, the Supreme Court, in complacency and conspiracy with then-Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson and the IRS, redefined the first ancient landmark of “separation of church and state,” and moved the First Amendment, though ever so slightly, declaring that the pulpit and the church no longer had a constitutional voice in the political process, which began a generational encroachment upon Americans’ religious liberty and freedom of speech. Without these two landmarks there can be no other freedoms.

Then in 1962-63, the Supreme Courtm along with certain atheists, removed the second landmark by taking prayer and Bible reading out of our schools.

Since the Supreme Court removed this ancient landmark, our school children went from being the world’s brightest in education to ranking among Third World nations. Today, barefoot children living in thatched-roofed huts with dirt floors score higher on SAT tests than American suburban and inner-city youth wearing $200 Nikes.

When the Supreme Court removed the most necessary element to education – “the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” – what can one expect? The worst problems in the classrooms in 1962 went from talking and gum chewing in class to gun violence, rape, mass murder and gang activities on campus.

Again, in 1972, the Supreme Court removed the third ancient landmark our fathers set. The Supreme Court, in conspiracy with the infanticide and genocidal death merchants of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood, had the audacity to redefine the LAW OF GOD, and encroach upon the freedom to LIVE of the yet-to-be-born Americans in the womb. The Supreme Court made what was once the safest place for a child – its mother’s womb – into the most dangerous place on earth, especially if you are black!

Today the Supreme Court is being told that if it does not redefine the last of the Ancient Landmarks – marriage between one man and one woman – America will become a backwater democracy. That America must get with the “emerging global consensus” of legalizing same-sex unions as marriage.

There is no emerging global consensus. It is a lie!

According to Austin Ruse’s Breitbart News article “Same-Sex Marriage Rejected by Majority of Countries Around the World,” I quote: “Only 17 of the 193 member states of the U.N. allow for same-sex marriage, and a court imposed only one of those. … 47 nations have constitutional provisions enshrining man-woman marriage, and more are coming.”

He goes on to report, “Only one country on the entire planet – Brazil – has mandated via its judiciary that same-sex couples across its nation have access to traditional marriage. If the U.S. Supreme Court is concerned about being out of step with the world’s leading democracies, it couldn’t make a bigger mistake than becoming one of only two nations in the world to cut democracy off at its knees and force its judicial will upon the people.”

Of the 37 U.S. states legalizing so-called same-sex marriage, only two did so by the vote of the people. The other 35 states had so-called same-sex marriage determined by federal courts – overturning, encroaching upon the people’s constitutional right to the vote – removing their landmark.

What is at stake before the Court this week is not the rights of 3 to 5 percent of the population to have their choice of lifestyle legitimized, but whether the Supreme Court will remove the final landmark of civilized nations – natural marriage for the 95 to 97 percent of Americans – and see generations deprived of their inalienable rights – the freedom of life, the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion and the freedom of free enterprise. It is already happening with bakers, photographers and pizza makers.

Today, America needs a landmark decision to overturn the 1954 Johnson Amendment. America’s preachers need to restore the ancient landmark of freedom of speech and start preaching from their pulpits that it’s not a matter of “right versus left” but it is an issue of “right versus wrong.” Some political policies are evil, and some politicians have no business in Congress.

Today, America needs a landmark decision to put prayer and Bible reading back in our schools and restore the ancient landmark “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

Today, America needs a landmark decision to overturn “Roe v Wade” and restore the ancient landmark “Thou shalt not kill.”

And today, the Supreme Court needs to make a landmark decision to leave the last remaining ancient landmark in place – natural, biblical marriage between one man and one woman!

For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they two shall be one flesh?

What God hath joined together, let not COURT put asunder.
