Steve Bonta, PhD Biography

Director of Communications for the Constitution Party
Pro to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"

“Michael Newdow, with his incoherent claims of constitutional support for his crusade against the Pledge of Allegiance, is only the latest anti-religious extremist granted a hearing by the modern American secularist establishment. His ludicrous claims — that ‘it’s my parental right to keep the government off my child’ (even as he insists on allowing the government to educate his child in public school), and that ‘the Constitution says that the government isn’t supposed to be infusing religion into our society’ — don’t deserve to be dignified by further comment here…

America, however, cannot deny God’s supremacy and remain free. To drift away from our Christian moorings is to chart a course into bondage, both spiritual and political. The French Revolutionaries and others of their ilk began by erecting secular, even anti-Christian states glorifying Man, and ended up enslaving themselves under mob rule, guided and harnessed by tyrants and demagogues. For us there can be no middle ground; we either mimic the mistakes of those who turned their backs on their Creator, or keep both ourselves and our government subservient to the supreme Law-giver, remaining, as our Founders hoped, one nation under God.”
