BOOM: Judge Lays the Smack Down on Atheists Who Attempt to Ban “Under God” in 1 EPIC Sentence

Judge Bauman is absolutely right – this is ridiculous and should be dismissed. If the student objects to the Pledge of Allegiance, he/she can sit it out. That’s their right. What isn’t their right is to deny everyone else their Constitutional rights to satisfy their predilections. It has never been the place of public schools or any other public institution to protect students or citizens from viewpoints and ideas. That goes directly against the Constitution and the First Amendment. It is censorship and the very definition of fascism. You have the right to be an atheist if you so choose… but you do not have a right to strip Christians of their rights. Especially since this Republic was built on Christian principles. Militant atheism, just like militant homosexuality, is being forced on Americans through the courts. Thank goodness there are a few judges left with sense and Constitutional knowledge.

From the Conservative Tribune:

Some kids could really use a lesson on the Constitution. Take for instance an unidentified high school student who filed a suit last year against the Matawan-Aberdeen school district in New Jersey on the basis that hearing the Pledge of Allegiance in class violated his rights as an atheist.

Judge David F. Bauman, who dismissed the case in February but whose ruling was just published Monday, disagreed with this faulty assertion.

“Protecting students from viewpoints and ideas that may offend or upset them is not and has never been the role of public schools in America,” he wrote.

But he did not stop there. He also pointed out how the phrase “under God,” which is what the student had a problem with, appears everywhere in America.

“As a matter of historical tradition, the words ‘under God’ can no more be expunged from the national consciousness than the words ‘In God We Trust’ from every coin in the land, than the words ‘so help me God’ from every presidential oath since 1789, or than the prayer that has opened every congressional session of legislative business since 1787,” the judge noted.

Furthermore, even the New Jersey State Constitution references God, meaning that “the very constitution under which” the student sought “redress for perceived atheistic marginalization could itself be deemed unconstitutional,” a notion the judge described as “absurd.”

According to BizPac Review, The American Humanist Association, which had teamed up with the unidentified teen, was not too happy with the ruling.

One of their spokespeople claimed that having children recite the Pledge of Allegiance is “discriminatory” and makes atheists feel like “second-class citizens.”

However, Judge Bauman explained that students have “every right to skip the Pledge” if they so desire. What they do not have the right to do is stop other students from reciting it.

No one is forcing that student to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. It is their choice. The judge’s ruling was correct and Constitutional and I don’t give a flying crap whether it makes The American Humanist Association happy or not. They can spin on it for all I care. ‘Under God’ is so engrained in American culture, that our whole way of life would have to be gutted to remove it, which is what the Progressives and atheists want. If that were ever to happen, America would fall and fast and they know it. The secret to American freedoms is twofold: our belief in God and our Constitution. Both of which are under fire from Marxists who would like nothing better than to get rid of both and effect the ultimate ‘change’ to America and our way of governance. This war on Christianity and the persecution of Christians in America must stop if we are to survive as a nation.
