For the Hill-Dwellers

Christians, Imperialism & the Rule of Law

O Lord, who shall abide in your tabernacle? Who may dwell on your holy hill? . . . He who swears to his own hurt and does not change. (Psalm 15)

In such, and only by such, is the Rule of Law established: those who keep the covenants they have made, even when it is to their disadvantage. Americans in recent years have been treated in an unprecedented way to the public exposure of those who have vowed to uphold the law, but who overthrow it with astonishing shamelessness whenever it does not suit their cause, or even convenience, apparently confident—and with increasing reason—that everyone but the nasty legalist is a sympathetic party to their perfidy.
