Judge Moore & Foundation Defend “Under God” in Pledge in NH Schools

Judge Roy Moore and the Foundation for Moral Law (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/) filed an amicus curiae brief (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/PDF/FreedomFromReligion_v_Hanover_FML_amicus_04_19_2010 NULL.pdf) in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit today defending New Hampshire schools who allow students to voluntarily recite the Pledge of Allegiance, including “one nation under God.” The Foundation argued that atheist Michael Newdow, who brought the lawsuit and lost at the trial court level, is wrong in alleging that the Pledge is unconstitutional. The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment only requires that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” it does not banish an acknowledgment of God and His sovereignty over the government.

Judge Roy Moore noted:

“Even after the very liberal 9th Circuit upheld ‘under God’ in the Pledge in California, radical atheists are continuing to oppose it in New Hampshire schools. The fight for our liberties and the right to acknowledge God continues because our rights are constantly under attack. We must keep defending our belief that we are under God or else we’ll soon find ourselves under the tyrannical rule of atheism.”

Just last month the 9th Circuit upheld “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance (http://www NULL.ca9 NULL.uscourts NULL.gov/datastore/opinions/2010/03/11/05-17257 NULL.pdf) and “In God We Trust” on our currency, handing another defeat to atheist activist Michael Newdow. The 9th Circuit held,

“The Pledge of Allegiance serves to unite our vast nation through the proud recitation of some of the ideals upon which our Republic was founded and for which we continue to strive: one Nation under God —the Founding Fathers’ belief that the people of this nation are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. . . .”

Over three years ago, Judge Moore and the Foundation filed amicus briefs in both cases in the 9 th Circuit to defend the right to acknowledge God under the First Amendment. (Read the Foundation’s briefs in Jan Roe, et al. v. Rio Linda School District (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/PDF/Jan%20Roe%20and%20RoeChild-2%20v NULL.%20Rio%20Linda%20Union%20School%20District NULL.pdf)(Pledge) and Newdow v. Congress (http://www NULL.morallaw NULL.org/PDF/Newdow_National_Motto_FML_brief NULL.pdf)(Motto).) The Foundation hopes for a similar outcome in this New Hampshire case and will continue to be vigilant about defending our unalienable right to publicly acknowledge the Creator God.

    Thomas Jefferson’s Second Inaugural Address:

    “ In matters of religion I have considered that its free exercise is PLACED BY THE CONSTITUTION independent of THE POWERS OF GENERAL GOVERNMENT. I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the religious exercises suited to it, but have left them ( the exercises that are suited to religion), as the Constitution found them under the DIRECTION AND DISCIPLINE of THE CHURCH OR STATE AUTHORITIES ACKNOWLEDGED BY the several religious societies.”

    As I see it—Independent means to stand ALONE and can support iself. Religion does not have the same government that the United States of America has. God and Jesus governs Humans to be good and do right, whereas, President Obama is governing our country or LAND at the moment; but that could change at any time. He might lose his governing power but God and Jesus never will. President Obama might change his mind in governing our LAND; but God or Jesus ‘s Governing NEVER CHANGES their minds on how a person should act or behave properly.

    So as you can see, Our United States Constitution only protects the governing of the LAND that We, the people, live in; and governs the LAWS that are placed there to protect the good and right people of the land.

    But we have no constitution whatsoever in our country concerning principles,morals and values. Therefore, I suggest to our representatives who represent We, the People of the most WONDERFUL country in this WORLD, whom WE have elected to protect the good and right citizens of America, to represent US in making a NEW LAW that proclaims and declares that the The King James Version of the Bible or any revised editions of this One Book become the United States MORAL CONSTITUTION.

    We can’t have one legal BOOK governing land and leagal NO BOOK governing the people can we? I’ve done the ground work with Gods help of course; now where ARE the CARPENTERS?

    The Declarations of the Rights of Man–1789

    “A society in which the observance of the law is not assured, nor the separation of powers defined, has no constitution at all.”

    Representative Randy Forbes has a bill out right now looking for votes from the Congress men and women to make 2010 THE YEAR OF THE BIBLE–that does nothing to forever protect our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren’s future.

    Instead, lets make 2010 the YEAR that The United States gave birth to The BIBLE as being the Moral Counstitution of the United States of America. Let us join together the our Constitution and The Bilble in Marriage so the two can become one Body of LAW.

    Let us FOREVER protect our land and our children from the people who say “There is NO GOD”! God Bless America.

    Thomas Jefferson said, ” In matters of religion I have considered that its free exercise is PLACED BY THE CONSTITUTION independent of THE POWERS OF GENERAL GOVERNMENT. I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the religious exercises suited to it,”. It’s time for US to put a SUIT on Religion–don’t you?
