1 Corinthians 15:40-42, 44

1 Corinthians 15:40-42, 44
There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

The Foolishness of Ending the Monroe Doctrine

A 200-year-old pillar of America’s foreign policy is gone. Should we rejoice?
BY RICHARD PALMER

 

“The era of the Monroe Doctrine is over,” proclaimed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on November 18. That was a historic proclamation, but what he said next was perhaps more surprising: “That’s worth applauding,” he said. “That’s not a bad thing.”

And with that, America proudly rejected a 200-year-old pillar of its foreign policy.

The arrogance is astounding. According to Kerry, the nearly 40 presidents who upheld the Monroe Doctrine did so for no good reason. It was a foolish, evil, imperialist doctrine, he appears to think. Finally, we have a president and secretary of state wiser and more virtuous than all those who went before.

The Monroe Doctrine states that any attempt by European powers to expand their control in the American hemisphere would be treated as an act of war by the United States. The spirit of the doctrine, brought up to date by former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger, is “that there should be no interference, no sponsorship of any kind of military activity in this hemisphere by countries in other hemispheres.
