Atheist Looks to Remove 'Under God' From Pledge of Allegiance, Currency
SAN FRANCISCO â€” An atheist seeking to remove the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and U.S. currency is taking his arguments back to a federal appeals court.
Michael Newdow, a Sacramento doctor and lawyer, sued the Elk Grove Unified School District in 2000 for forcing public school children to recite the pledge, saying it was unconstitutional.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Newdow's favor in 2002, but two years later, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Newdow lacked standing to sue because he didn't have custody of the daughter on whose behalf he brought the case. He immediately filed a second lawsuit on behalf of three unidentified parents and their children....
Maybe the so-called athiest wants to remove every reminder of God because his conscience tells him there is a God and he is sinning against God.
"Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" Romans 1:19-20
Having just come across some articles on a search engine about how the Bible condemns gambling, it would appear that the gambling addiction is growing faster in America (and Canada) than alcholism and drug addictions. This is a blight on society. Just another tool of the devil.
How can any human being who doesn't believe in His creator waist so much time (and money) to have the words 'under God' removed. The USA is a deocratic country and since the majority believes there is a God, how can one man even think he can get his way passed as a minority of your country? This man needs prayer as it is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God
