God said it, you just weren't listening, Tonnington, and this constitution, as applied, makes absolutely no allowance for God.. or natural law, which accepts Him as its Creator. Before marriage was a civil institution it was sacred one, and He doesn't want it turned into an absurdity. In that way the Charter, or at least the way it is being interpreted, is a document of amazing arrogance in its assertion that man's (okay humans', to be politically correct) powers of intellect in fact supersede those of that which created him.. as manifested in those beliefs that spawned and sustained the society we live in.
The Charter reflects the Deist bent of its model in the U.S. Constitution.. but has been applied in an even more aggressively anti theistic (atheistic) way. There's no equal justice before the law the way the Charter is being applied. Its application is blatantly biased towards new age, post structural, post Christian 'morality'. Something, that in the 2000 years of Western Civilization has only gotten real ascendancy in the last 30 years.
Parliament is actually not bound by the Judiciary's interpretation of Charter. It is empowered to make laws primarily in the best interests of Canada, regardless of what the courts say, through the use of the NWC and the consultation of people of Canada. It is the courts that feel they are too august to be bound by any consultation with their 'inferiors'. The courts now reign from a world of self contained sophistry, beyond good and evil; far too proud to be constrained by responsibility to a 'figment of the primitive imagination' that the less enlightened call God. It is a franchise of absolute power they have been deeded by default of Parliament and paraphrasing Lord Acton, they have been corrupted, absolutely.
The sad sack lot of parliamentarians we have now, have not the wherewithal or gristle to do stand in their way. They allow themselves to be led the courts, who have, in many cases proven themselves to be complete dolts in recent years. We have moved into a realm of the total conceit of these courts.. and we are in a death spiral as a society because of it. The media, the educational establishment has unwaveringly proselytized this brave new world to the point where anyone who speaks against it is subject to ridicule, banishment, if not imprisonment... yet.
I frankly expect a civilizational collapse of the West at this rate, and a new Dark Age.. like, but much more catastrophic than that which followed the fall of the Pax Romana .. with massive depopulation, retreat of technology, incessant conflict, subsistence economies.. here, in North America and Europe.. spanning centuries.
I expect we'll be fully involved with that, within our lifetimes. We are seeing repeated shocks now that presage a series of mammoth destructive events in the economy, and in society in general.. it's all interrelated. The glue that has bonded us is dissolving.
