Here is why the U.S. Constitution’s 14th amendment is so important to preserve

Here is what I’m talking about in the previous blog post. Just today, there is a story out of South Korea where the South Korean Supreme Court upheld, by a slim margin, imprisonment for adultery. If you remove adultery/imprisonment and replace gay marriage/constitutional amendment, it reads eerily similar to a story on the gay marriage issue.

From the article:

South Korea’s highest court upheld Thursday a decades-old adultery law that can send people to jail for having an extramarital affair that critics say is anachronistic and infringes on personal freedom.

The fourth appeal made to the Constitutional Court since 1989 was brought by the lawyers for a popular actress who was charged under the law when her TV personality husband filed a criminal complaint against her for having an affair with an opera singer.

“The legal clause does limit an individual’s right to sexual freedom and the right to privacy, but does not violate the principle of forbidding excessive measure,” the court said in an opinion overturning the appeal.

“This society’s legal perception that adultery is damaging to the social order and infringes on another’s right continues to be effective,” the court said.

The lawyers for actress Ok So-ri, whose legal name is Ok Bo-kyung, brought the appeal in January when she and her husband Park Chul entered messy divorce proceedings with both holding separate news conferences where they exposed embarrassing details of a troubled marriage.

Ok admitted to the affair in a tearful confession which also included accusations of Park as an inadequate husband.

“The adultery law … has degenerated into a means of revenge by the spouse, rather than a means of saving a marriage,” Ok’s petition had said.

I also feel obliged to post a link to the anti-Christian affect that I was alluding to in the previous blog post.

In conservative Islamic areas in Pakistan, Egypt, and The Sudan, we have young Christian girls being kidnapped, forcibly converted to Islam, and then forcibly married to Muslim men… and the law finds this acceptable.

From the link:

Pakistan is by no means alone in this horrendous practice. It is equally common in Egypt and The Sudan. Unlike Pakistan and The Sudan, where Sharia Law reigns and hence the kidnapping and rape of Christians is no crime, Egypt theoretically has laws that protect all citizens.

But not in practice.

And, just as it recently legalized Female Genital Mutilation, it has also started to embrace other bizarre and cruel Islamic practices.

Yes, indeed. “Principles only mean something when you stick to them when its inconvenient.”

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
