A godly preamble for Cleveland.

July 28, 2017

A godly preamble for Cleveland.

1. Before continuing in this article or any article in this blog, I recommend that you read the article entitled, Lakewoodites for McCartney: (which was originally written when I was running for a seat on the city’s council,) otherwise the paragraphs that are numbered 2 – 5, and 77 – 78, and 81 of that article. But persons ought to know that they (and you) are responsible, (although some act recklessly,) and ought to act responsibly. If you choose to only read those seven (7) paragraphs, for your convenience you may read the page called, Preface.

2. My understanding is that the charter for the city of Cleveland in the state of Ohio does not have a preamble. Whether it does or not, I have a proposal to make a preamble for the charter of Cleveland, Ohio to improve the city in a manner that is not inconsistent with the scriptures, which could put Cleveland in a better position to get God’s blessings considering Deuteronomy 28 of the King James or Authorized Version of the Holy Bible (scriptures).

3. Although I do not live in Cleveland, I did when I started the rough draft for the preamble. It was started on May 6, 2013. When I was typing the initial rough draft for it, I did not know what was occurring in Cleveland. Three (3) young women were liberated from their captivity after about ten (10) years. Three (3) girls or young females were taken against their will by a pervert that held them for approximately a decade, or more or less. What that perverse person did to those females was something that ought to be reserved for a man and his wife.

4. The pervert that raped those girls is dead, which is what rapists deserve, although it was reported that he committed suicide. The United States’ Supreme Court won’t allow the states to put rapists to death, unless they kill their victims. For that you may read Kennedy v. Louisiana, 554 U. S. 407 (2008).

5. The Bible teaches the death penalty for thieves that rape, taking that which ought to be reserved for the person that the victim might marry or is married to. You may read Genesis 2, Genesis 34, Deuteronomy 22, Judges 19 & 20, II Samuel 13, Esther 7, Romans 1.

6. To overcome the bondage that we are in so that we can get and keep the liberty to obey God by practicing his judgments that he issued could involve a few things. Bad judges could and ought to be impeached for bad acts, such as bad opinions, which (opinions) are ostensibly based on the Constitution. Consider section 4 of article II and section 1 of article III of the American Constitution. I think that allowing rapists to escape justice is not consistent with good behaviour. A constitutional amendment could be ratified to subject the Constitution to the scriptures to direct the judiciary to regard God’s word. State laws could be made to provide for the death penalty for rape; but defended differently in court to show the Court that the free exercise of religion means the unrestricted practise of Christianity. And a city could provide for the foundation to make godly ordinances, which could then be defended better in court: seeing that some would litigate to protect rapists after those sinners attack their victims.

7. For persons that think that such a proposal, to provide for the divine will, is unconstitutional, you may consider some information provided in the article, Lakewoodites for McCartney, which I wrote when I was campaigning for a public office.

8. I have given an idea for a preamble that is intended to produce godly ordinances (paragraph 9). The file name for that is 2017.07.28.1a. After that I have given credit to the sources that I got the idea from for the various words of this proposal. The words of the text are separated by a hyphen. After that the source or sources is or are given (paragraphs 10 – 42). The file name for that is 2017.07.28.2a.

9. Preamble.

We, the citizens of the City of Cleveland, in the County of Cuyahoga, in the State of Ohio, in order to form a godly and truthful and righteous and moral city, exercise our God given constitutionally protected right and liberty to obey Almighty God, to whom we are thankful, advance the will of God, establish judgment and justice, insure tranquility, provide for the common safety, promote the general happiness and welfare, and secure the blessings of God to ourselves and our posterity, do frame and adopt this charter for the government of the city. We acknowledge that we and our words, such as constitutions or charters or laws or statutes or ordinances or resolutions or proclamations or contracts or otherwise, are under the God of Israel and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. We acknowledge that the holy scriptures (the scriptures) are the Authorized or King James Version of the Christian or Holy Bible, which is the old and new testaments. We acknowledge the superiority of the Creator (the Lord God omnipotent) and his law, and the rest of the scriptures. We acknowledge that we are subject unto the higher powers to the extent that they are not contrary to God’s will that is expressed in the scriptures. We acknowledge that we ought to walk in the ways of God Almighty by observing and doing his commandments; because God is worthy, and to avoid his curses. We hope that God’s blessings come on us if we heed his word (the scriptures). Thus we desire to have the benefits of scriptural municipal home rule, and to exercise all the powers of local self-government. We desire to be righteously ruled by godly rulers that fear God, and that shall do justice and judgment, that evildoers be terrorised or punished, and doers of good be praised.

41. municipal home rule, and to exercise all the powers of local self-government. – Preamble to the charter of Lakewood, Ohio.

43. The stoppage or reduction or rape, and the proper punishment of rapists are some of the blessings of God that we might get for obeying God. Other blessings which we might have are a reduction of other crimes, a restoration of sanity regarding gender differences, such as keeping males (persons that have the ability or potential to naturally beget, or the wherewithal that are for the begetting of, offspring) out of the restrooms of females, (persons that have the ability or potential to naturally bear, or the wherewithal that are for the bearing of, offspring) where both women and girls are, and the protection of marriage, which necessarily pertains to a man and a woman.

44. The people need to know that a man may not sexually touch a woman unless and until they are married. Consider Exodus 22:16-17 and I Corinthians 6:9-11 and I Corinthians 7, and other scriptures. Making fornication illegal can help to raise the dignity of men and women. It can also take away a defence claim when a male defendant says that he copulated (had sexual intercourse or coitus) with the female, but didn’t force her.

45. This proposal promotes morals and good government, (See section 7 of article I of Ohio’s Constitution.) which is according to section 1 of the charter.

46. Thank you for taking the time to consider this idea. If you agree with it, if you reside in Cleveland you can contact your representatives that are members of Cleveland’s city council: otherwise Clevelanders may circulate a petition to amend the charter according to section 200 of the charter.
