Honoring God is Constitutional

NEWS: In 2005, a federal judge in Sacramento ruled that the Pledge of Allegiance was unconstitutional. However, today a federal appeals court in San Francisco upheld the use of the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, rejecting arguments on Thursday that the phrases violate the separation of church and state.

"The Pledge is constitutional," Judge Carlos Bea wrote for the majority in the 2-1 ruling. "The Pledge of Allegiance serves to unite our vast nation through the proud recitation of some of the ideals upon which our Republic was founded."
In a separate 3-0 ruling today, the appeals court upheld the inscription of the national motto "In God We Trust" on coins and currency.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: The next time you are confronted with the phrase "Separation of Church and State" you can arm yourself with this knowledge:

1-The Constitutions of ALL 50 States begin with references to God for their rights.

2-The Declaration of Independence says we Americans are "endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights."

(So, to take God out of America is UnConstitutional & violates the words of the Declaration.)

With so many battles, something else you can do is celebrate this ruling, and thank God for the victory. May this ruling encourage us all to continue the fight, working to bring America back to God!
