Thomas More Law Center Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
Reasoning:

“Yesterdays ruling of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals which found the words ‘under God’ to be unconstitutional is but the latest example of the widespread judicial hostility to all things religious. Over the course of the past 40 years, the courts have wielded unprecedented power in imposing their anti-Christian, anti-religious agenda on America, with this ruling representing one of its most egregious decrees. Sadly, religious people have slept as their liberties have been systematically stripped away by an activist court system, atheistic in disposition, and ruthless in its disregard for the religious foundations or our country.”
