The Nutty Left Judges Are At It Again

Today, September 14, 2005, the Pledge of Allegiance has been declared unconstitutional.... Again. Guess where this little ruling came from? tick, tock, tick, tock... If you said California, (as usual) you got it right. The problem I have with this ruling is not the ruling itself since I know people on the left coast are so completely out of the mainstream they're dry docked, and they are also quite possibly insane. My argument is against the logic used by the judge: ...one nation "under God" violates school children's right to be "free from a coercive requirement to affirm God." If the judge would kindly point to anywhere in the Constitution that states the Pledge is a violation, I'd be happy to agree with him, and buy him a beer. Fortunately that is not the case: Article. III. Section. 1. The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour, and shall, at stated Times, receive for their Services, a Compensation, which shall not be diminished during their Continuance in Office.

I think that his judgeship should read the above and know that his ruling is wasted. Everyone knows this will be overturned. Political heads will roll if it is not. As for the left coast judges, you already lost, but you continue to press. Activist judges making laws infuriate me more than average lefties since they are almost always lefties to begin with, and leftist judges make for very bad rulings. So, once again, the Supremes will have to come in and clean up the mess the left coast has so graciously thrust upon us.

Since I have not done so in several years, I re-read the Constitution top to bottom.

http://www.house.gov/Constitution/Constitution.html While I am not a lawyer, I was not able to find any mention of religion as it may apply to the Pledge. Sure, there's the old bug bear:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

But I do not see, and neither has any other court except on the left coast, how "One Nation Under God" is an inference of Congress making and establishing a religion. It's not. They know it, and we know it.

Face it, activist judges will be the death of this country if we allow it. I for one refuse to let this go unchallenged.

Lefty judges and the pledge
