Americans and The World Need a ReAwakening of Conscience in Politics Lawrence Gold

The primary fault with the U.S. Congress and with The Supreme Court is the replacement of morality with legal theory. Why do I need to state the obvious?

When legal theory substitutes for morality, the law becomes the lowest common denominator for social behavior. Law is not the highest standard; it’s the lowest acceptable standard. If it’s not illegal, it’s considered acceptable and defensible.

Law is a way of regulating from without; morality is a way of self-regulating from within.

Regulation from without is always inferior to self-regulation from within. It’s inferior in enforcement, it’s inferior in results, and it’s inferior in its economic effects. The reach of the law always falls short of the reach of morality.

But the trend of American Politics has been away from morality, in part, because of a misunderstanding of the principle of the separation of Church and State. The original intention of the separation of Church and State arose from the existence of an official Church of State in revolutionary period England, which was the Anglican Church. An official church of state imposed itself and interfered with freedom of religious choice. The separation of Church and State was never about removing morality as a regulating force in society.
