What is morality?

morality2

by Jerry Broitzman, Vice Chairman of CPoW, Milwaukee County Affiliate

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) considers morality as Job #1.  If the moral order is restored to the decision making process, then sound social and fiscal decisions will follow.  Most people can see the logic in this, even if sounds too “religious” for them.

John Adams said that we must have a moral and religious people in order for our constitutional form of government to succeed.

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” – John Adams

However, what is morality?  In our current culture of moral relativism, morality is “being true to one’s self.”  In other words, if I believe it to be true and I am somewhat consistent in that belief, then I am being “moral,” so long as it does not hurt anyone else.  Has a nice ring to it, right?  Well, every murderous dictator throughout history has been “true to one’s self,” so there is a very fundamental flaw in that way of thinking.

But let’s use a different, hypothetical example:  Let’s say, for instance, that I truly believe everybody should dye their hair purple.  If everyone in America dyed their hair purple, we would all have something in common and be less suspicious of each other.  As such, the crime rate would plummet and we would live harmonious, productive lives.  Remember, I truly believe this, I have been consistent in this mind-set and it doesn’t hurt anyone.  Therefore, I am being moral.  Because I am a moral human being, I begin a multi-year, national campaign to implement my idea.  Over time, the US Congress is convinced of the merits of my idea and passes a law:  All Americans must now dye their hair purple.

Does this sound silly?  Well, congress passes laws in this manner every day.  Without an objective moral standard, the majority will determine what kind of laws are passed, no matter how silly they appear.

At CPoW, we believe in the moral absolute as found in God’s Word, the Bible.  Now, just to prevent confusion, we look to the King James Bible for the true Word of God.  Our Founding Fathers did the same, so we must be on solid ground.  It is clear that our Founding Fathers derived the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution from biblical principles.  Currently, the United States has strayed far from it.  We intend to bring it back on course.  We will restore the moral order as found in God’s Word and restore the constitutional principles on which this country was founded.  At CPoW, morality is Job #1.

Jahi McMath’s Right to Life

Jahi McMath

These six things the Lord hates and seven are an abomination to him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among the brethren.” Proverbs 6:16-19

By Riley J. Hood – CPoW State Chairman

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) condemns the ghoulish way Ms. Jahi McMath was treated by Oakland’s Children’s Hospital.  What have we become, when a children’s hospital no longer tries to save a child’s life?

Jahi is a thirteen-year-old girl who suffered complications after a tonsillectomy, resulting in brain damage. Because a person suffers brain damage doesn’t give anyone permission to say that person “brain dead” or “legally dead” and then refuse treatment when they are physically alive.

It is self-evident that Jahi is very much alive. According to Dr. Paul Byrne, “Clearly, a patient with a beating heart, circulation and respiration, is not a cadaver.” Dr. Byrne further asserts, “No one shall be declared dead unless respiratory and circulatory systems and the entire brain have been destroyed.”

There is a big difference between brain damage and declaring someone brain dead.  There is a big difference between not being able to save a life and not even trying to save a life. Jahi is in this situation through no fault of her own and only a criminal would want to let her die and refuse to allow another hospital or doctor to intervene on her behalf.

The criminal this time isn’t a family member trying to refuse treatment, it is the hospital itself. Neither situation is acceptable, but this represents another lowering of our national ethics.

The CPoW party platform states “We also oppose all government ‘legalization’ of euthanasia, infanticide and suicide.”

I finally would reassert the United States Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
