Judeo-Christian victory in California

Atheist Michael Newdow lost a lawsuit on Thursday before a 3-judge panel of the most left-wing circuit court of appeals in America, the 9th Circuit in San Francisco, California.  In a stunning rebuke to one of America's most infamous atheists who is attempting to strip God from the public square in America, the judicial panel in a 2-1 decision ruled that the words "under God" could be used in the Pledge of Allegiance and in a 3-0 decision the panel ruled that "In God We Trust" could be used on U.S. currency and coins.   

The appeals court panel rejected Michael Newdow's claim that the phrases "under God" and "In God We Trust" violate some silly notion of "separation of church and state" which is found nowhere in the United States Constitution.  The only place the left-wing in this country  --  which has used the discredited claim of "separation of church and state"  --  can find this phrase is in a letter which Thomas Jefferson wrote to a Connecticut Baptist pastor.   

The Associated Press reported tonight that "The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel rejected two legal challenges by Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow, who claimed the references to God disrespect his religious beliefs. '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.' 

Michael Newdow  --  who was a guest of President Barack Obama at the White House on February 26th with a group of fellow atheists, etc.  --  has been trying for over a decade to stop students all over America from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in schools because he is offended by the phrase "under God" in the pledge.

As Megyn Kelly said on Bill O'Reilly show tonight, the 9th Circuit Court panel ruled that the Pledge of Allegiance is indeed constititutional and she and O'Reilly said Michael Newdow should just go away.
