"In this way we are

"In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource in peace and war." -Dwight D. Eisenhower
It has been over 50 years since then President Eisenhower endorsed the addition of the phrase "under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance. Today, U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence Karlton undermined history and spat on American values when he ruled that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional due to the phrase "under God."

Many of us remember growing up reciting the Pledge everyday before we began our day in school. It is a symbol of what it means to be American and is deeply rooted in our tradition. But, for now, that is no more thanks to the judicial activism of Karlton. We can only pray that the state Supreme Court will strike down the ruling by Karlton but who knows? This could spread from California across the nation. Newdow and the left may be thinking that they've scored a victory but in reality, they've only further demonstrated how judicial activism by liberal judges is ruining our society. The public outrage over this ruling is incredible. This was an important ruling but not one that should have been very surprising. The left has discovered two areas where they have established footholds by which they can spread their agenda. Those areas, as I've said numerous times, are legislating from the bench via liberal judges in our court systems and poisoning our youth from behind the walls of public education. This decision was like a two-for-one deal at the supermarket for the left. They get to further spread their disgusting ideology throughout our public school system by having the Pledge of Allegiance removed via the ruling of one liberal judicial activist.

We as conservatives and everyday citizens need to wake up to the realization that we may be slowly losing our country to leftist extremism. This ruling should be that wake up call for our society. When do we come together and say "enough is enough?" Our nation was founded under Judeo-Christian values. President Eisenhower reinforced this ideal with his approval of the addition of the statement "under God" to the Pledge.

We can do something about this. We must do something about this. Do we want our children to grow up in a society without morals? A society that seeks to deny the existence of a higher power? Of course not! We need to stand up today for the future of tomorrow.
