You may not be aware of this, but two High Court judges have recently thrown us back to pagan times, having ruled that human rights should override established religious beliefs. After 5000 years of moving in one direction, we are now being turned backwards to the times of anything goes. Why? Because anyone can invent any human right he wishes – even a fart can be designated as a human right – and then insist on its superiority over everything else.
Human rights, so that you know, were invented to substitute the rules of human behaviour, set out in the Commandments of the Bible that can’t be adapted to suit people’s changing lifestyles. With human rights it’s simple: one day assisted suicide is illegal and the next it’s a human right set in stone. One day seducing children is considered wrong and the next underage sex could be proclaimed a basic human right.
But back to our judges. The purpose of High Court judges is to administer justice in accordance with the laws of England and Wales. These judges swear the judicial oath, or affirm, stating that they will ‘well and truly serve our Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth the Second in the Office of a Justice of Her Majesty’s High Court… and do right to all manner of people after the laws and usages of this Realm, without fear or favour, affection or ill will.’
A couple of days ago two senior Family High Court Judges, Lord Justice Munby and Mr Justice Beeston stated the following while ruling on an issue concerning the adoption rights of a Christian couple that objected to homosexuality on the grounds of their religious beliefs. The judges ruled: ‘Although historically this country is part of the Christian West, and although it has an established church, which is Christian, there have been enormous changes in the social and religious life of our country over the last century. Our society is now pluralist and largely secular.
