In response to R.V. Gossen:
Micah 6:8 happens to be one of my favorite verses.
The word “mercy” is used instead of the word “kindness” in the 1599 Geneva Bible, King James Version, Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition, 21st Century King James Version, New King James Version, Amplified Bible, Contemporary English Version, New International Version, New Living Translation, World English Bible, Wycliffe Bible.
The word “kindness” is used in the American Standard Version, New American Standard Bible, English Standard Version Anglicised, Lexham English Bible, New Life Version, Revised Standard Version, New Revised Standard Version.
The word “grace” is used in the Complete Jewish Bible.
The word “love” is used in the Common English Bible, Good News Translation.
The word “goodness” is used in the Darby Translation.
The word “faithfulness” is used in the Holman Christian Standard.
I very much prefer the word “mercy”, as it implies forgiveness, which is necessary to being forgiven.
Bill Forbes didn’t need extensive research to understand what kind of person Morris Dees is, or what kind of organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is. Articles are plentiful on the subject.
Evidence abounds that the largely discredited SPLC is a hard left fascistic propaganda organization which uses demonization, smear tactics and fear mongering as its favorite strategy methods of choice. The SPLC has said that fundamental Protestants, Catholics, Orthodox Jews, Constitutionalists, so-called “Patriot” groups and many other decent hard-working people are “haters” and a dangerous threat to society.
Wikipedia has an article on SPLC founder, Morris Dees, here:
IMO, lawyer Morris Dees hates and disrespects the U.S. Constitution. I have nothing but contempt for his ilk.
The bottom line is the Constitution is a specific-performance two-party contract, not alterable unilaterally by one party (government) to the contract. The way you amend it is by following the procedures set forth in Article V, not by cutesy manipulation, misinterpretation, deception, and ad hominem attacks on the opposition à la the despicable Morris Dees.
