America’s Clairvoyant Founders

All too often, I succumb to the temptation to think that America’s Founding Fathers (peace be upon them) were merely human. I entertain heretical thoughts, such as our Holy Constitution being a superannuated eighteenth century relic. In my darkness of unbelief, I imagine that important parts of the Holy Constitution are structurally antidemocratic, and I sometimes even suspect that document may be better scrapped rather than our having to patch it up with another boatload of amendments.

But that would be to underappreciate the superhuman qualities of the Founding Fathers (pbut). It turns out, for example, that they foresaw the future with a clairvoyance that cannot be accounted for by godless materialists. As laid out in “The Founders’ Unchanging Principles of Liberty,” one of the many amazing documents brought to us by the National Center for Constitutional Studies, the Founders (pbut) in the eighteenth century perfectly anticipated and endorsed the political program of the Christian Right of the twenty first century.

Verily, a miracle indeed.
