Warning Labels And The Constitution - Only In The 21st Century
No joke. Wilder Publications has started putting warning labels on copies of the United States Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and other historical documents. It reads that each document is "a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today.” For more you may refer to this article. To be sure significant progress has been made with issues such as race in the last 200 plus years, but the word "values" has become a relative term. Tolerance is the new "value" of our society. That said, intolerance is not an option either. Unconditional love, grace, and truth have never been more needed than right now. Time-honored traditions and writings are under constant attack as everything is being watered down or twisted to fit 21st century, post-modern, political, scientific, religious, and secular agendas which place little emphasis or value on things like the Constitution of the United States of America. What's next, a warning label for the Bible? Don't laugh.
