America Held Hostage by Liberal Judges with Nothing Better to Do

Got this in email today:

Federal Court in California Rules Pledge of Allegiance Unconstitutional

A federal district court in San Francisco has ruled that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools is unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton (eeeevil! - emphasis mine) ruled that the pledge's reference to one nation "under God" violates school children's right to be "free from a coercive requirement to affirm God." Karlton said he was bound by 2002 precedent of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Your Senators could have stopped this nonsense last year but they failed to act. In 2004, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would have prohibited liberal judges from ruling on issues involving the pledge, but failed because the bill died in U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

S. 1046 – The Pledge Protection Act of 2005 has been introduced in the U.S. Senate. Let's not let this happen again!

S.1046 - The Pledge Protection Act of 2005 - reads as follows: 'No court created by Act of Congress shall have any jurisdiction, and the Supreme Court shall have no appellate jurisdiction, to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, the Pledge of Allegiance, as defined in section 4 of title 4, or its recitation.'

By exercising the authority of Congress to regulate the jurisdiction of federal courts, the Pledge Protection Act will do more than express an affirmation by Congress that the Pledge is constitutional. It will rein in a renegade judiciary that has confused the freedom for religion with freedom from religion.

If your Senator is already a co-sponsor, be sure to thank him or her for supporting this vital legislation. If not, urge your Senator to sign on as a sponsor S.1046 - The Pledge Protection Act of 2005.

Email Your Senators Now!

And please, please forward this very important email to your family and friends now!

My comments:

I wrote my senators (and of course, I tried to use a little more tact than I did in this blog post). If you don't know who yours are, you can click here and find out. It takes three seconds to send a nice little email about how you don't think the state of California is a constitutionally viable part of the United States, therefore anything coming down it's judicial pipe should be disregarded (no offense to nice conservative people in CA - ya'll can mosey on over to Texas, there's plenty of room for good folk in the Lone Star State)... and while we're at it... why not just sell California back to Mexico (with Judge Lawrence Karlton in it)? That might fix their housing market, too!

One question I have to wonder is what would be the punishment for reciting the pledge?

Say a child gets punished for saying “under God” and has to go to court for his sentencing...
While swearing him in as his hand is on the Holy Bible, the Judge says, “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you G*d…" Whoops, wait a minute? Back to square one!

What are they going to do with such an offense?

While we are at it, we need to do something about our currency too, don't ya think? Where is the uproar from liberals when they spend a dollar bill that says in “God we trust” on it?

I agree... but it is a sad day in this country when you decide that (as I have) it's better to just not say the pledge at all...

America is not worthy of my allegiance if it's not protected by my Lord.

Doesn't Don Wildmon strike you as a little nutty? Have you checked out his stuff to see if he's on the square?
