Michael Newdow is back. The man who keeps trying to take “One Nation Under God,” out of the Pledge of Allegiance has just filed suit to remove “In God We Trust” from our currency.

In the best (or worst) tradition of jurisdiction-shopping, Newdow brought his suit in the 9th. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals the most activist circuit court in the land.

In 2002, the 9th. Circuit agreed with Newdow that an acknowledgement of God in the Pledge violated so-called church-state separation. The Supreme Court reversed that decision on technical grounds.

Newdow, who went to court last year to keep the president from taking his oath of office on the Bible, is indefatigable -- an Energizer Bunny of atheism.

He recently told the Oklahoma ACLU that, as an atheist, he is offended by “In God We Trust” on our coins and currency. Well I’m offended that Newdow would shop his atheism to the most liberal court in the land, in an effort to prohibit the overwhelming majority of Americans from having the honor of acknowledging God on their coinage.

America wasn’t founded by atheists. If Newdow continues to work his devilish craft of trying to expunge expressions of faith from the public realm, soon he may turn his sights on the Declaration of Independence, with its multiple references to the Creator.

Christians and Jews must let Congress know in no uncertain terms that we are appalled by this ungodly assault on our constitutional right of freedom of religious expression.

It’s time to serve notice on the demagogues who pose as judges (while denying the truth that our form of government was founded on Judeo-Christian values) that we intend to put an end to this evil. The impeachment of one activist judge would go a long way toward ending this anti-God crusade.


Princeton University Professor Peter Singer believes that within 35 years, so-called doctor-assisted suicide will be the norm in the United States.

Writing in the fall issue of the magazine “Foreign Policy,” the professor of bio-ethics predicts, “By 2040, it may be that only a rump of hard-core, know-nothing religious fundamentalists will defend the view that every human life, from conception to death, is sacrosanct.”

The Australian animal-rights proponent (who advocates infanticide up to 28 days after birth for the disabled) cites the Terri Schiavo case as the turning point in American attitudes toward “the care of patients in a persistent vegetative state.”

But Schiavo, who was starved to death at her husband’s behest, wasn’t in a persistent vegetative state. She was alert, smiled, cried, responded to the presence of her parents, and could take nutrition by mouth.

None of that matters to Singer and his allies. They view the disabled, the infirm and the elderly as burdens on society whose deaths should be facilitated.

By 2040 a significant portion of our population will be over 75. God help them if the Peter Singer-ethic, an anti-Judo-Christian ethic, prevails.

Pastors, join us in our efforts to expose and counter this madness, by becoming a Patriot Pastor, which you can do on line at http://www.visionamerica.us/.


Don Feder, Vision America’s Communications Director, was in Washington, DC on December 1st. for a press conference at which prominent Jewish spokesmen defended public celebration of Christmas. Don was joined by Hudson Institute scholar Michael Horowitz, Rabbi Daniel Lapin and comedian Jackie Mason.

Their message: While we don’t celebrate Christmas ourselves, we are standing up for the right of Christians to do so.

The group (called Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation) decried the disappearance of Christmas from our culture, including banishing Christmas from our schools and “Happy Holidays” replacing “Merry Christmas” as a seasonal salutation.

It is heartening to see this group of observant Jews standing with Christians for the celebration of Christmas. They understand that when religious expression is purged from the culture, we all are poorer for it.
