Interview With a Law Professor, Hiding In the Christian Closet

Interesting piece.

I spent a long time on the phone last night with a law professor at one of the countryís elite law schools. This professor is a practicing Christian, deeply closeted in the workplace; he is convinced that if his colleagues in academia knew of his faith, they would make it very hard for him. We made contact initially by e-mail -- he is a reader of this blog -- and last night, by phone. He agreed to speak with me about the Indiana situation on condition that I not identify him by name or by institution....

I will call him Prof. Kingsfield, after the law professor in The Paper Chase.

...

Like me, what unnerved Prof. Kingsfield is not so much the details of the Indiana law, but the way the overculture treated the law. "When a perfectly decent, pro-gay marriage religious liberty scholar like Doug Laycock, who is one of the best in the country -- when what he says is distorted, you know how crazy it is."

"Alasdair Macintyre is right," he said. "It's like a nuclear bomb went off, but in slow motion." What he meant by this is that our culture has lost the ability to reason together, because too many of us want and believe radically incompatible things.

I think this is a very common conclusion people are coming to -- the center cannot hold, and we're tired of trying to make it hold.

We are heading for a national rupture. Divorce is best done quickly. I do not wish to spend further years in a bad marriage. Divorce is coming, and so it should come quickly.

But only one side has the power. When I asked Kingsfield what most people outside elite legal and academic circles don't understand about the way elites think, he said "thereís this radical incomprehension of religion."

"They think religion is all about being happy-clappy and nice, or should be, so they donít see any legitimate grounds for the clash," he said. "They make so many errors, but they donít want to listen."

To elites in his circles, Kingsfield continued, "at best religion is something consenting adult should do behind closed doors. They donít really understand that thereís a link between Sister Helen Prejean's faith and the work she does on the death penalty. There's a lot of looking down on flyover country, one middle America.

"The sad thing," he said, "is that the old ways of aspiring to truth, seeing all knowledge as part of learning about the nature of reality, they don't hold. It's all about power. They've got cultural power, and think they should use it for good, but their idea of good is not anchored in anything. Theyíve got a lot of power in courts and in politics and in education. Their job is to challenge people to think critically, but thinking critically means thinking like them. They really do think that they know so much more than anybody did before, and there is no point in listening to anybody else, because they have all the answers, and believe that they are good."

On the conservative side, said Kingsfield, Republican politicians are abysmal at making a public case for why religious liberty is fundamental to American life.

"The fact that Mike Pence canít articulate it, and Asa Hutchinson doesnít care and canít articulate it, is shocking,Ē Kingsfield said.

It's a long piece and if you like that there's more where that came from.

I disagree. This is completely wrong.

It is preciously because the academic left understands the purpose of organized religion that they hate it so, and so wish to destroy it.

To wit, the point of organized religion, at least the various flavors of Christianity in the western world, is to provide a world view independent of the State.

Such independent thought is dangerous to the notion of "fundamental change" led from and for an all encompassing state.

15 The thing is, nearly all the old homophobia is gone. Anything on the net is just part of the usual "we're not face to face so I'll show my ass" kinda stuff.

We did an inservice yesterday with a black LGBT health advocacy group. The presenter handed out pictures of various young men and told us to tell him our first thoughts. After we said our piece, he would respond with things like "What if I told you X was bisexual?" and everybody was like "Soooo-? WTF difference does that make?"

You could tell it was compleat FAIL becoz the presenter wrapped it up with a lame "Well, I just wanted to show you that..." and then showed a lot of youtube videos.

18 Our political "thought" is being driven by the young, ill-educated cult followers of a fundamentally unAmerican administration and media.

On our side we have a GOP ruling class who finds this all "icky" and the rest of us, who live in fear of the IRS or some other government bully coming down on us.

So, yeah, it feels pretty hopeless, but I don't think I'd survive the "divorce" very well, so I have to keep trying.

19 "The sad thing," he said, "is that the old ways of aspiring to truth, seeing all knowledge as part of learning about the nature of reality, they don't hold.

I think that's what bugged me so much about the New Atheism. Not the lack of belief, not even the smug self-righteousness at the faith-based conviction that one is right.

No, it's the use of a belief (or non-belief) specifically in order to stop thinking. Like putting on a cloak of intellect. Wrap it around you and you're good to go.

More than that, they ascribe to their progressivism and atheism firm faith (there it is again) that the world is kept from utopia only by irrational superstition.

It's not that they won't think critically about other's firmly-held beliefs. They won't think critically about their own.

30 >>It disturbs me that everyone must preface their remarks with "I am personally for gay marriage"

I oppose SSM. I think it's bad public policy that led to predictably terrible results.

I'm also a member of a religion that has some of the most uptight rules about human sexuality, marriage, etc.

That said, I would not hesitate to make a SSM couple a cake for their reception or photograph their wedding.

So talk about being in the minority -- I hardly see anyone who espouses that set of views.

*shrugs*

If someone wants to call me homophobic for opposing SSM or someone else wants to accuse me of being bad Christian for the cake thing, that's their problem, not mine.

This has stopped being about ideas. It's stopped being about values. It's about sides.

Whoever it was who wrote about shooting the survivors the other day had it exactly right.

I'm pro gay marriage and every other pro gay thing. I do see it as a civil rights issue. But they insist on terrorizing pizza joints.

I am not religious at all, but the best people I know are devout and take their faith seriously, but they are tarnished as rubes.

"Gay" marriage is rather remincent of the scene in 1984 when Winston is being forced to agree with the claim that 4 fingers is actually 5...if the state demands it.

'Do you remember,' he went on, 'writing in your diary, "Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four"?'

'Yes,' said Winston.

O'Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended.

'How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?'

'Four.'

'And if the party says that it is not four but five -- then how many?'

So did I.

When I was in CA I read up on the SSM thing b/c of Prop 8. I spent time at some "gay conservative" blogs and really tried to understand why it had to be MARRIAGE, not a civil union or other legal arrangement. None of the folks advocating for SSM could provide me with a satisfactory argument.

I was still somewhat "meh" about the issue until the Prop 8 opposition people turned into thugs, trying to destroy individual people's lives for simply exercising their political right to give to the Prop 8 effort or sign a bloody petition.

Now I'm completely against it. I'm sick of redefining American culture to shut up the screeching leftists.

79 National divorce.

Welp, having seen what happens when nice 40ish beta males get tired of their harpy wives in my circle of friends, and decide they'd like to separate . . . it doesn't go well for them. They get destroyed. And financially raped. And get AMAZING horrible lies told about them. So they can't live where they want anymore, if you take my meaning.

Divorcing the Left is not gonna fly. Not without one hell of a nasty fight. So, civil war that would be (the regular kind, not the cold kind we're in now).

My hope is that we can hang in till they just collapse. They're close. Trust me. Wait for the old harpy to have to check herself in to rehab.

Let me lay a little personal take on you. Divorce is designed to convert the long stoked hatred of wronged (read: all) womenz and using the heat generated convert the biomass and earnings of Ye WhiteHeteroChristianistMaleMicroAgressor (as featured on LIFETIME) into a feed stock, on which the bottom feeders of the divorce industry thrive.

Here, my friends is the epicenter of current truth. Do we believe that immigration policy, the Keystone decision, voter ID law objections, or restrcting the military's right to vote are honest attempts at achieving a normative social outcome? Of course not.

I have a book of Eric Servareid's essays published int he 1960s. In them he repeated characterizes Marxism not as an ideology, but as a justification for obtaining and retaining power. We see the same thing in action today from the left. There have been no serious attempts at reinvigorating middle class economic fortunes since January 20, 2009. If anything, the opposite is true: Taking no action is itself an action.

Why the continued assault on churches? Why the attempts to remake the voting rolls? Why use the military for social engineering experiments? Why create a Crucible atmosphere in the science community over global warming? Why muddy the concept of family? Why promulgate by executive action what can't be done by legislation? Simple: To hollow out other power centers.

With my fellow Christians being slaughtered, and persecuted in foreign lands and facing the enmity of my fellow countrymen here where I live.

Jesus said people wouldn't like what he was teaching . . . He told us that people would revile us and that even our family (fellow countrymen ?) would turn on us.

It seems like its time to put up or shut up - damn the costs.

I'm inclined to cut ace some slack on that point. I've been commenting here for a decade (and reading longer than that) and while that has been discussed in all that time, he's come from insisting it was all crazy talk to recognizing the inevitability of the situation. That's a big step.

Also, we're both currently living behind enemy lines and likely to be trapped here when it happens. Unless we abandon all our friends first, which isn't easy (not least because aside from NY or Chicago on the one hand and Texas on the other it's not clear how it will all shake out).

130 None of the folks advocating for SSM could provide me with a satisfactory argument.

Then it's for a reason they're to embarrassed to articulate.

Validation.

This really struck me when I heard a radio interview with Charles Murray who said that one of the cultural shifts is that the elites -- professionals, upper middle class -- are all about marriage now. Instead of the old days in which "a piece of paper doesn't define my love", now it's common and desired to be married.

And it's a status symbol.

Hence, gays want the status. They want to say they are "married" and introduce themselves as "married" and use the word "married". In part there's this desperate desire to validate themselves and get others to say "you're a good person and what you do is not weird" but it's also about fitting in with this cultural shift.

I think it's hilarious that gays were tricked into embracing heteronormativity.

The CSA would accept most of the the Midwest, KS, OK, NE, NM, AZ,CO MT, KY, WVA, UT, ID.


Basically we carve out the SE and the core of the country. We leave the Northern States on the coast to form their own country, and we leave the West Coast to form their own country.


The Midwest OH, IN, IL, SD, ND, MN WI all should form their own country


That gives us Four countries. SE, Left Coast, NE, Midwest

148 So the anti-gay position doesn't have power for the first time in recorded history and that's not fair!

It's not like things were nice and quiet for the last hundred years for gay people. Even twenty years ago simply revealing you were gay had an immediate social cost that, depending on where you were, could include violence.

How many gay men have been violently assaulted or killed simply for having the temerity of being gay? Note that this stuff still happens in America today to say nothing of being the law of the land in many parts of the world.

And how many anti-gay bigots have been violently assaulted or killed for their beliefs?

I hate to break it to you, but we have reached the point where revealing that you are anti-gay has an immediate social cost. Just like revealing that you are a racist has an immediate social cost.

"Oh, but I'm not anti-gay. I'm just anti-gay lifestyle. I'm just anti-gay marriage." No. Just like people who opposed interracial marriage were racists, people who oppose gay marriage are anti-gay. That's the world you live in. You have two choices: Get used to it, or don't.

Because they aren't conservative, maybe? Or is that just crazy talk?

Principles matter. The vast majority of politicians don't have 'em... at least in the sense that are core ethical/moral positions that, when challenged, will be tossed aside for the better good of retaining a powerful job to do, um, important stuff.

Maybe if we chose politicians who say what they mean, mean what they say, and let the chips fall where they may we might have an operable democracy. Alas, 'tis but a dream. We're boned.

We don't hate the sinner we hate the sin. As much as I detest you at times, I still would like to see you come to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Mock us, hate us, lie about us. We were told about you and your kind. Yet we continue to go into all the world.

217 honest question: do you all really believe Jesus literally died and came

come the fuck on.


Yes. I believe that God created the universe. I believe that God caused the stars to be formed in the heavens, set the sun and moon in their courses, defined the "rivers of the seas," and made Man in His own image.

I believe that God called Abram out of the land of his fathers, and showed him a land that He would give his inheritors.

I believe that Abram was renamed Abraham, and his wife Sarah bore him a son.

I believe that, after generations of captivity, God sent Moses, of the Tribe of Levi, to rescue the Hebrews from the Egyptians.

I believe that the Hebrews, led by God, wandered the wilderness for 40 years because of their unbelief.

I believe that after the 40 years, God allowed the Hebrews, now under the leadership of Joshua (Yeshua) son of Nunn to occupy the land now known geographically as Palestine.

Fast forwarding some: I believe that in the time of Caesar Augustus, a man named Yeshua (Jesus) was known to be the son of Joseph, a carpenter in Nazareth of Galilee.

I believe that this Jesus taught with authority and power, and gathered many people to be his disciples.

I believe that the Jewish political/religious leaders and the Romans put him to death by hanging on a cross.

I believe that 3 days later, the tomb was empty.

I could say I believe all these things because they're in the Bible. And that would be true, so far as it goes. But I believe them because they historically verified or logically inferred from things which have been historically verified.

Because these things are historically verified, then I choose to believe the Bible when it says that "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God." I choose to believe that Jesus died, was raised on the 3rd day, was seen by many who could identify him, and then was raised to God's right hand.

If you think to shame me for that belief, you are sadly, sadly mistaken.

We are heading for a national rupture. Divorce is best done quickly. I do not wish to spend further years in a bad marriage. Divorce is coming, and so it should come quickly


Here's the problem, Ace:

The last time there was a similar cultural/political split came in 1860, and back then it was fairly clearly defined geographically: A supermajority of the population in the north were anti-slavery, while a supermajority in the south were pro-slavery. So the split was easy to do: draw a line approximately where the two different philosophies met each other on the map.

But now, oh now, things are completely different: the split is generally urban vs. suburban/rural, and coast vs. interior.

There's no way you can physically divide that up on a map.

How can you create a separate country that includes Brookly, Ann Arbor, Berkeley, Hawaii, half of Miami (but not the other half), Minnesota's urban centers (but not the countryside), and the slums of New Jersey?

You can't. Physically, at least.

So what form will this "divorce" take? How can we "split" from the progressives?

And what about people like you and me, anti-communists who live in the belly of the beast, surrounded on all side by immediate neighbors who would shun us if they knew out political outlooks? When The Divorce happens, will be be given over to the custody of progressive madmen?

I can't see how this ends well -- or ends at all.

"The fact that Mike Pence can't articulate it, and Asa Hutchinson doesnt care and can't articulate it, is shocking," Kingsfield said.


The fact that it doesn't fit on a bumper sticker or even in 140 characters really hurts.

222 What I want most is a peaceful divorce. Conservative states want to go. Leftists should want them to go too, but the country is being held together by spite. It's ridiculous.

I'm convinced that a movement to peacefully break up the country would, over time, succeed. Leftists, however, will never allow it peacefully.

Meanwhile an old, dangerous enemy is more open in its paranoid, Mafioso and aggressive view of the rest of the world, poses as the Third Rome, a defender of the faith and church, misuses symbolism of St. George and vows to fight decadence, is full of conspiracy theories and tales of NATO "sodomite snipers" kicking off the Maidan protests. Their populace is awash in nationalism and loves the SJW stuff coming out of the USA, "proving" the West wants to export the gay liberation stuff to them, and they aren't having any of it, no way.

Their leader cynically exploits all this, portrays them as a country at bay, and love every Ferguson and Pizza Parlor story coming out.

Yes.

I believe that Jesus, who was God inhabiting a human body so that we might better relate to Him, was put to death ostensibly by the powerhungry of His day, but in truth as payment for my sins, because only blood can pay for sin and only Divine blood could pay for all of us. I believe His resurrection from the dead is proof of His claims and as such, I throw my lot with Him entirely.

We were all Masons, members of the Order of the Eastern Star, and went to grange hall meetings.

OK. But there are several other religions that say totally different things. And those true believers are convinced that their "bible" is correct.

How do we know which one is right? They can't all be right. Correct? So by definition the vast majority of religions have to be wrong. Christianity is the largest religion on earth (I think) but that doesn't mean it's the correct one. And if it is, does that mean the billions of non-Christians who are Muslims, Hindus, Taoists, etc are going straight to hell?

I was agnostic at best. I'm still not that religious, but the night my mom died changed my attitude forever. I know I told this story before. I had 5 bad disks in my neck from a car accident. It blew out really bad in 2004, and the traces from that took 3 years to go away. It blew out again in 2011 which was 4 months before my mom got sick. I have one of those cervical traction things and had to be in it a few times a day. Spending a month in the hospital with my mom just made it worse. My neck was freezing up, I couldn't turn my head, my right arm and shoulder was numb, etc. The night she died I went home, sat on the couch, looked up and said mom, I hope you are ok. That's the last thing I remembered, I passed out. I moved to the bed eventually and could not sleep on my side for more than 15 seconds before the neck kicked in. For some reason it didn't hurt and I passed out again.

when I woke up the next morning there was no stiffness, and all traces of the neck injury was gone, all if it. I had a new body. Its been 4 years and I don't even think about the neck anymore. I can do everything I did before the car accident. Mom sent her message..no pain.

I'm not so agnostic anymore.

296 >>I thought yesterday about the massacre in Kenya. How easy it would have
been to deny Christ and be spared. And they didn't, and were killed, no
different than the early apostles, all but one of which died brutally.

And this is happening every day - people murdered by ISIS and Boko Haram are murdered for not renouncing Christ. They're beheading kids over this, for Pete's sake.

So yes, Moo Moo, I really believe Jesus literally died and came back 3 days later.

Greek homosexuality was primarily "mentoring".

We're not talking about consenting adults here.

Ditto with the Romans' brief experiment with gay marriage, which was pretty much confined to Nero and...well, there was also a distinct lack of adults in that scenario as well.

Only no one would have donated money to them.

The entire South had to be dragged into repealing their anti-miscegenation laws by the Supreme Court (Rule by judicial FIAT!!!!!111!!) in 1967. Fifty years later and no one espouses these once universally popular opinions becuase there is an immediate social cost to doing so. Everyone seems to have gotten the memo even though I'm sure lots of people still hold these beliefs.

Right here in the heart of the devotedly liberal, Obama-worshipping, Gaystapo-headquarters SF Bay Area, there used to be, located in a bad part of Croakland, a business called "Your Black Muslim Bakery".

It's closed now, because of the head of the bakery having been sent up on a murder-one conviction.

I do wonder how many of the ardent local social justice warriors here, instead of attacking a small town pizza parlor two thousand miles away over the Internet, would have been comfortable personally walking in to Your Black Muslim Bakery to order a cake for a gay wedding.

Somewheretime there's a Creator who made exploding stars and sharks, and (oddly enough) me.

keeping track of myself and my critters is going to eat up the remainder of the time I have left.

Point being: I don't have the time, position, or desire to judge anyone else's choices in life. Not to say that if I see bad I won't step off the road and take care of it, but for the most part I expect to be left the hell alone and extend the same courtesy to other people.

380 So, kosher rules are cuckoo-crazy to you?

Jews have been following them for 3,000 years. Hasn't seemed to hurt or affect anyone else on earth in any way.

Yep -- the Bible features dietary restrictions against shellfish, pork, insects, and a few weird animals as well. This is news?

A few Christian sects follow kosher rules, but most don't. And the amount this affects me is...???

Should we similarly mock gluten-intolerant vegans, for having a kooky dietary restriction?

Gluten intolerance is a disease called Celica. Look that shit up.

Back to the topic at hand....yes Kosher rules are as ridiculous as any other biblical rule, old or new testament. That's my point. It's some arbitrary rule like you can't eat lobster. Why the fuck not? Oh because god says it's evil. Really? God gives a fuck that I eat lobster but he's totes cool if I eat salmon. Yeah, that makes a whole lot of fucking sense.

It'd be one thing if the US hadn't previously supported slavery, denying women the right to vote, Jim Crow, etc., in the past, but it seems pretty fucking stupid to continually hearken back to a time when apparently everything was okay (which we can apparently say was the years 1970-200.

I don't like what's going on. A business should be allowed to deny service to whomever it chooses. ..but, this whole the America I know/want is dead because I don't currently like the way the wind is going is retarded.

It'd be one thing if this were already a utopia and liberalism where shitting all over it, but it's not and it never was. there have always been problems, but the USA has always done the best at addressing and remedying them.

Mistakes in policy will always be made, but in no other country is their an avenue to remedy these mistakes.

Stop shitting all over everything because things aren't going your way and be part of something better.

Work in the system and make things right. Stop trying to take a moral high ground based on a historical precedent that doesn't exist.

He did that as well.

The marriage was only referenced by later writers who may have been trying to slander or mock Caligula -- we don't know how many of the stories about him were actually true.

Same with "gay marriage" in ancient Rome. Legally, such a thing did not exist -- campily, gay Romans on rare occasion would stage a mock "wedding", even though it was never official nor legally binding. It was more like a tranny stage act performance than an actual wedding. Gays have always done such things, as a lark, for fun. Dressing up as a bride -- fabulous!

458 The marriage was only referenced by later writers
who may have been trying to slander or mock Caligula -- we don't know
how many of the stories about him were actually true.



Same with "gay marriage" in ancient Rome. Legally, such a thing did
not exist -- campily, gay Romans on rare occasion would stage a mock
"wedding", even though it was never official nor legally binding. It was
more like a tranny stage act performance than an actual wedding. Gays
have always done such things, as a lark, for fun. Dressing up as a bride
-- fabulous!



There's a distinction between camp and reality.

Elagabalus (emperor from AD 218-222) used to cross dress and wanted to marry a guy. Thank Gaia, there weren't any homophobe Christians in charge then. Those tolerant open minded pagan Romans cut his head off and dumped him in the Tiber to show their support for his lifestyle

465 Recommended reading: The Righteous Mind, by Jonathan Haidt. a pretty good scientific look at the left/right divide. Essentially, the left does use the same moral palate, and has a great deal of difficulty believing that the right can have a moral basis for decisions they disagree with. the right's palate is more varied, and can therefore conceive of the rationale for the left's decision while still disagreeing. It explains how it is so easy for the left to create un-persons against whom no measure is too extreme.

It's just Sharia, a theological concept which does not distinguish between church and state. As such, it is incompatible with our system of governance.

By your twisted logic, the First Amendment is a "faith based law" which - to the literate population - is patently absurd.

Yeah, the conservatives have been too busy for the past 30 years to pay attention to the fact that the radical leftist loons took over the schools and indoctrinated their children. We are doomed because the left controls everything and unfortunately, they also have the younger generations on their side now as well. The conservatives didn't bother to pass on their values to their children. They didn't bother to keep an eye on what their children were being taught. They also couldn't be bothered to go out and be activists for right leaning causes. They basically let the left take over and didn't do a damn thing about it!

I am really sorry that the revolution was and is inconvenient. I am also very sorry that freedom is so expensive. Oh well, I am sure the left won't round up every conservative, and I am sure at least some of us will be able to keep a small room for our families in our own house after everything is nationalized. Yeah, I am sure it will all be okay. Uh huh. Sure.

Posted by: Mistress Overdone at April 03, 2015 02:21 PM (2/oBD)

506 From the piece: "Say, for example, that a Catholic school had no trouble hiring a chemistry teacher who openly advocated for same-sex marriage, because that teacher was in the school to teach chemistry. His views on gay marriage are irrelevant, in practice. The school may have a different standard for hiring its religion teachers, or its social studies teachers, requiring them to be more doctrinally in line with the Church. But that is a distinction that may not hold up in court under challenge, Kingsfield said."

So we are now in an era wherein the US court system decides and regulates Church doctrine. Great.

The point of the RFRA laws was to provide clear statutory relief for cases of religious dissent with either the government or civil disputes. It was to prevent every 1st amendment appeal from going the Federal circuit course, which is absurd.

The center is holding, but the institutions are systematically invaded from within. We want healthy food, clean environment, but we get the "green" movement. Then we get CO2 is a poison.

Religions get marginalized as well. And the private sector and public sector get unions. And Democrats now seem to be fed the hate propaganda from Hollywood and the MSM, where communism crept in and made McCarthy the bad guy (obnoxious as he may have been)

I still see the large groups of people holding, but the institutions systematically overrun. Hopefully the blogs can still save the day, and maybe some candidates with the right message.

At least he is trying to do something.

Where is Pence suppose to even start when Americans are no longer taught the foundational elements of why we are America- and the current culture tells them that our Judeo Christian belief system is something to be embarrassed about and uncool?
It's these kinds of attacks that discourage politician from putting themselves out there.
It helps the liberals with the roll over.
It's how societies descend into evil- few will fight back and the watchers will sit and critique the "style" of those that do.
At least that is one of the explanations of why so many Germans enabled you know who...Hitler.

593 Christians staying under the radar to survive in academia is hardly a new trend. That reality existed for decades. One of my early wake-up calls occured when our graduate director announced that he had never met an intelligent Christian. Standing beside him was our leading grad student (highest GRE scores) whom the Director also mentored. This intelligent man was a Christian and his equally intelligent wife was a minister. The grad director attempted to rid his student of his faith and when his efforts failed; made little effort to help his student find a teaching position after his dissertaton was completed.

Indentification as either a Christian or conservative turns one into an academic and social leper within university circles.

". . . all of these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not Him that sent me."

"He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

"But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning."
