Potinus Pilate & Justice Roberts.

I think we all know the story of Potinus Pilate and Jesus.  Pilate could find no fault in Jesus and washed his hands of the affair when the Jews continued to cry out for his execution.  But what Potinus also did was he created a Biblical example that Chief Justice Roberts hoped that the people of this country would follow in a different way.  Pilate, in the custom of Rome, brought forth Barabbas and asked the Jewish people would they rather release Barabbas, who was a murderer and thief, or Jesus, who was innocent.  The crowd chose Barabbas and even went so far as to declare that they would take responsibility for Jesus’ death.  Now Pilate did this in hopes the people would make the right decision and free Jesus.  But when he saw the decision the people made he literally and figuratively washed his hands of the affair in front of the people and told them that the blood of Jesus (Jesus’ execution) was on their consciences and not his.

Chief Justice Roberts has done much the same as Pontius Pilate.  He made this statement after the decision: “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” -Chief Justice Roberts.  In other words?  He is tired of deciding what is right and wrong for the lazy people of America.  Roberts thinks we should do this ourselves.  What he has effectively done is like Pilate, giving us a very obvious choice.  do we choose Barabbas (out of control government) or Jesus (the Constitution).  Now here is the ultimate problem.  There is a third choice:  We wait, see what happens and then go to open rebellion, riots, and then civil war when we don’t like what we get.  Roberts has perhaps knowingly opened the door to all out revolt against the government in the country…
