Many law school professors, political scientists, constitutional lawyers, and liberal journalists hold the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution in such awe and reverence that they must think it was handed down on Mount Sinai. The truth is that its adoption was tainted because it was accomplished by military force and three-quarters of the states did not provide simultaneous consent. Indeed, an excellent argument was made when it was certified that it had not been legally adopted.

The Fourteenth Amendment was intended to ensure that the North could treat the South as a conquered country, that the South could not re-fight the war in the courts, and that former slaves and their descendents would have the same legal rights as other citizens. Instead, it has given us a national abortion epidemic; legalized pornography, sacrilege, and blasphemy; banned prayer and the Bible from public schools and the Ten Commandments from the courts; abolished true bicameralism in our state legislatures; kept reliable evidence out of criminal trials; and impeded good police work. It has also been used to legalize the desecration of the American flag. “Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them” (Matthew 8:20).
