Throughout the course of nearly every single Supreme Court nomination in the past couple of decades has been the topic of “Settled Law”.
This is a wicked and dangerous idea that needs to be eliminated once and for all. Many use this term when it comes to discussing the 1973 Supreme Court opinion on Roe v. Wade that legitimized the serial murder of children within their mother’s wombs. This is not, nor has it ever been, settled law.
There are only ten laws that are settled. Forever unchanging and compleatly irreversible. These laws are found in the Book of Exodus and have the common name of the Ten Commandments. And they can be usually found in every courthouse across this great nation. Rightly and proudly displayed to the public.
These are the only settled laws in all existence.
Every law that man has made is changeable by man at any time. What is illegal today can be legal tomorrow. What is legal today can become illegal just as quickly. This includes the opinion on Roe v. Wade, which isn’t law at all since it is a court opinion.
Many laws are changed, modified, rewritten, ignored, and removed every single year by state legislatures and Congress with a simple vote and then signature of the chief executive.
So take the notion of settled law out of your vocabulary. It doesn’t exist outside of the Laws of God.
