Blessings to you!
The airwaves are awash with commentaries on the hearings to confirm or deny the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.
Until yesterday, I was able to roll along, listening without much opinion either way, figuring that those "in the know" would make the right decision. Then, the other day I heard something that brought everything into focus for me. It brought the question to my mind, "Could it be the Supreme Court is off-course, that it is missing the mark of its mission?"
This firestorm of thought began when Ms. Sotomayor said, "The heart should not be driving the law." That got my attention because it suddenly occurred to me that MINDSET is what is wrong with these hearings, AND the mindset currently in place could be standing in the way of true justice.
I want to be perfectly clear...I am neither for, nor against Sotomayor, I am for "liberty and justice for all," and that is not possible under the mindset demonstrated in these hearings.
Let's get back to the words that started all of this, "The heart should not be driving the law." Well, yes and no. Semantics and hidden agendas are twisting this concept into knots and choking the true importance of the law.
The greatest judge of all time, Solomon, asked one thing of God. He asked for an understanding heart.
