For we also used to be foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, Whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. But although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened."

Deep thinkers may call that “judicial activism”. Back where I come from, we call that lying. Judges don’t just twist and stretch the law for fun, usually they do it to support some article of faith in the liberal creed. That’s what wins them the support of the media and academia. Attempts to justify judicial activism are very complicated and very clever, but they boil down to the kind of excuses any parent of a small child should be used to hearing.

For a bit of context and wit [if a bit snippy], check out Gary North's satirical piece on proposed revisions to the Declaration.
