Foundation Calls for Return to Constitution
Local Foundation “Educates” Congress
Contact: Kayla Moore, Foundation for Moral Law, 334-262-1245
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Aug. 5, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ — The Foundation for Moral Law, a Montgomery-based non-profit foundation dedicated to the strict interpretation of the Constitution as written and as intended by its Framers, has undertaken a massive project to educate the members of Congress about their duties as guardians of the Constitution.
Earlier this week, the Foundation sent a detailed letter to each of the 435 Representatives and 100 Senators explaining that the Constitution gives carefully enumerated powers to each of the three branches of the federal government. The President, according to the Foundation, has repeatedly exceeded his constitutional powers by issuing executive orders on subjects that are beyond his jurisdiction, and the Court has issued rulings that ignore the plain meaning of the Constitution and simply substitute their own subjective opinions in its place.
Foundation President Kayla Moore said, “Congress has the right and duty to protect the Constitution drafted by ‘We the People’ by overriding the President’s executive orders through legislation and by refusing to appropriate money for the President’s unconstitutional activities. Congress also has the right and duty to keep the Court within its constitutional limits by refusing to confirm judges and Justices who ignore the Framers’ intent and, according to Article III Section 2, limiting the Court’s appellate jurisdiction.”
Along with the letter, the Foundation sent to each member of Congress a 112-page booklet titled One Nation Under God which is a compendium of foundational documents include excerpts from Sir William Blackstone’s Commentaries, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and President Washington’s Farewell Address. The booklet is available through the Foundation.
Foundation Senior Counsel John Eidsmoe added, “Our hope is that the members of Congress and their staffs will study these founding documents and be reminded of the limited republic our Founders created. In this pocketbook form, the Constitution becomes like your American Express card: ‘Never leave home without it.'”
