A Headline Begs for a Constitutional Briefing

federal court upholds prayer in congress
Let’s start with order and word counts in the first three articles of the Constitution, as amended.

The order of the three branches of federal government and the word counts are thus:

Legislative Branch, Article One, has ten sections and 2,268 words.

Executive Branch, Article Two, has four sections and 1,025 words.

Judicial Branch, Article Three, has three sections and 377 words.

Do you see a pattern?

Think in terms of a board game.

The Legislative Branch makes the rules.
The Executive Branch moves the pieces on the board.
In the case of disagreement among the players, the Judicial Branch resolves the conflict.

I ask again. Do you see a pattern?

The three are not ‘co-equal’; they do not have equal powers (authority).

A former pastor used to say, “Anything with two heads is a monster.” He was referring to those old Japanese Godzilla movies featuring huge multi-headed creatures. If we surrender ourselves to the myth of three co-equal branches of government, we submit ourselves to a tyrannical monster.

Have you not the time to read and study the U.S. Constitution?

Here is a link to the official document, updated by amendments. https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/constitution-transcript

The Judicial Branch has no authority to either grant or to deny our natural rights.

Jesus Christ is the highest authority, our lawgiver, executor of the Will of God, and our ultimate Judge. As He said on the Mount of Olives, “…you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
