Mathew Staver, JD Biography

Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel
Pro to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"

“Day after day we have recited the Pledge from the classroom to the stateroom, from private meetings to public events, and not once has it tended to establish a religion. Today’s ruling [Newdow v. U.S. Congress] illustrates why we need judges who are umpires applying settled law rather than activists intent on imposing their own ideology.”, Sep. 14, 2005
