PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE DEFENDED FROM ACTIVIST JUDGES

CWA
Sep. 27, 2004

Dear Friends,

The House of Representatives sent a strong message to activist judges across America last Thursday. By a vote of 247 -173, the House of Representatives passed the Pledge Protection Act (HR 2028), sponsored by Representative Todd Akin (R-Missouri). Your support of CWA's vigilance on the issue of court jurisdiction limitation contributed to this momentous victory for both freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

If made law, the Pledge Protection Act would limit the jurisdiction of the federal courts so that no federal judge would have the ability to ever prohibit a student from exercising their civic freedom to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. This bill is the second bill passed by Congress exercising their Constitutional power to limit the jurisdiction of Federal judges, and would help stem the tide of judicial activism by reminding judges that it is not their role to write law, but to obey it. If passed by the Senate, the Pledge Protection Act would prohibit federal district courts, appellate courts and the Supreme Court from hearing cases challenging the constitutionality of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Call to Action!

Click here to see how your Representative voted. If they voted in favor of the Pledge Protection Act, thank them, and encourage them to continue holding judges accountable. If they did not vote in favor of this legislation, please remind them that it is the responsibility of Congress to limit the jurisdiction of judges when their rulings step outside the bounds of the law.

The number for the Capitol Hill Switchboard is (202) 225-3121. If you'd like to also send an email, please go to our Action Alert page. Thanks again for helping make this possible!

Sincerely,

The Legislation Department Concerned Women for America
