A Massachusetts Judge – Really?

As a resident of Massachusetts, I am used to dealing with liberal judges and courts which is why it is quite a surprise when the “Good Guys” win one. This is exactly what happened on Friday though, when a Superior Court Judge, S. Jane Haggerty, ruled that the words “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, do not violate the Constitution. Considering the amount of “enlightened” liberals here, this certainly is a surprise.

Of course the American Humanist Association representing the plaintiffs in the suit, have promised to appeal, so who knows what might happen next.

Fitchburg attorney David Niose on behalf of the AmericaThis n Humanist Association.

Niose is also president of the association, and he promised on the association’s website to appeal Haggerty’s ruling.

“If conducting a daily classroom exercise that marginalizes one religious group while exalting another does not violate basic principles of equal rights and nondiscrimination, then I don’t know what does,’’ he wrote.

This is the usual MO for these groups, they appeal and appeal, hoping to make it so expensive the defendants give up.

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, represented the school district in this case. According to Diana Verm, their counsel, had this classic line:

“Members of the American Humanist Association have the right to remain silent if they want to, but they don’t have the right to silence everyone else,” added Verm.

We must continue to fight these battles, one at a time, and with the grace of God, we can turn the tide on those who seek to remove religion from the public square.

    The more I read this stuff I’m thinking that maybe we are trying to get rid of the wrong people(Mexicans). People, If you don’t like the way we live then get the hell out and start your own country or join Chavez, Kim Jong Ill Jr,Putin or any other wack job out there. I will personally hold the door as you leave. Be informed: WE HAVE WOKEN UP !!!!!!!!!!.
