Today Wolfgang sent me a link to this performance by a Slovenian young women’s chorus called Carmina Slovenica. Wolfgang knows I have a particular fondness for choral music, but he could not have known how much I needed to hear these strong female voices at just the moment his link arrived.
I was having a rough day because I’d been doing research in connection with a case in which there is strong suspicion that a toddler has been abused by a father’s family member who is a registered sex offender under a statute devoted to sex offenses against minors. Based on the child’s sexually precocious behavior after visiting this individual, the mother had developed unsettling fears that something was seriously wrong. But it was only after the Redemption Project ran background checks on the father’s family members that the mother realized the father’s family had apparently conspired to hide this person’s sex offender status from her.
I saw her horror when I shared the report with her. She hadn’t known. I also saw the light go on in the mother’s eyes as she realized that she had been manipulated and lied to by her former boyfriend and his twisted family.
Yesterday we learned that the father’s family is now claiming to a judge that the mother had been told about the family member’s sex offender status long ago. These people are such low-lifes it makes my skin crawl. They’re making the mistake of thinking they can trifle not only with the truth, but use the courts to override a mother’s instincts to protect her cub at any cost. They may as well have aroused a mother bear.
I am doing my best to calm her. But this is a formidable task when you consider the deep well of Natural Power healthy maternal instincts tap into.
Coincidental with these events a remarkable woman has reached out to me and we have been talking. She has published a true story under the pen name Lone Heron, which describes her upbringing in a severely abusive family. The book’s title is Inherited Rage (http://www.amazon.com/Inherited-Rage-ebook/dp/B007EECDUA), and it relates how Lone Heron survived by killing both her parents as a teen, and how she has walked the long road to Redemption since then. She has transformed herself into a natural healer of extraordinary ability and insight. Everything she is telling me validates my vision of what we should be doing to help kids recover from the tragedy of parricide and all the twisted and evil things that lead up to it.
But here is the lesson I am drawing from this coincidence. Unlike so many kids who survive by killing their abusers, Lone Heron denied she had committed the killings and refused to talk to the authorities. The courts were unable to convict her and she was, in fact, acquitted and thereby allowed to rebuild her life without the destructive interference of the state. In this one rare instance, Natural Law prevailed.
So as I see how the toddler’s father’s family is trying to use the courts to subvert Natural Law and permit their continued access to a child who may become damaged through their unnatural perversions, I am realizing that there are limits to what we can allow the courts to impose upon us as sovereign human beings.
We continually see the courts dispensing injustice and destroying lives in the process. They get away with doing this because we continue to submit to their authority. Judges like Rex Reed and John Hodge do not deserve our compliance.
I am not suggesting that we should become a lawless society, but that we owe our allegiance to a higher law, Natural Law, which we know in our hearts and which will prevail hundreds and even thousands of years from now when our legislatures, courthouses, and prisons will long since have been reduced to dust.
