Michael Newdow May Be The Dumbest Doctor Alive!

You know who he is–he is an ER physician who is “offended” that public schools have children recite the horrific and terrorizing “Pledge of Allegiance” because it says “one nation under God.”  He is back in the news today talking about his continued efforts to have this language stricken from the Pledge and from having the offensive “In God We Trust” taken from our currency.

He was interviewed on talk radio in Houston this morning and made the statement that the framers of the Constitution invisioned an America where the Government did not take a position about God or any other religion and that the framers would be shocked at the addition of “one Nation under God” in our Pledge.  When asked why this is an issue since nearly every public school allows children to be silent during the Pledge-he profoundly stated that was a “free exercise” issue not a separation of church and State issue.  I am not easily offended but the thought that an aethist can force his non-views on society simply because he is anti-God is driving me insane so I thought I would remind anyone who reads this what is really going on here.

First–let’s talk briefly about the “framers” intent.  It is clear from the constitution that the Government cannot prohibit the free exercise of religion.  It is clear from the Pledge of Allegiance that no government entity is prohibiting the free exercise and in fact, allowing kids not to say it at all protects that right.  (Aethism is not a religion-but that is a different story).  Now as to intent, the Declaration of Independence says “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  All men are “created” equal.  That implies a creator directly.  But Mr. Newdow, if that is not enough of a hint, it continues by saying that we are all endowed by our “Creator” with rights.  That directly states a belief in a Supreme Being.  So, I don’t believe the intent of the framers was to strip our Nation of God so that you won’t be “offended.”

As to the separation of church and state issue–that is not found in the Constitution.  It is a Court-created concept from a misapplication of a letter written by Thomas Jefferson.  That letter stated “Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”

So what is he saying here?  He is saying that he invisions a Country that does not disallow individuals from establishing a religion and freely exercising that religion within the bounds of the law (no human sacrifice for example).  So that there is a wall separating the church from the government control of the church.  This phrase has been mutiliated to mean that our Government cannot acknowledge the existence of God–how ridiculous!

 Don’t worry Mr. Newdow–other countries have throughout history stripped God from their existence, although nearly all were or have been destroyed–they did exist at one time.  If you want to be offended, watch political advertisements or cable television, but I wonder how you can be offended by something that you claim doesn’t even exist? 

 Enough ranting on this today–more to come.

    Your comments are intriguing. Thanks for the information.

    Pledge of Allegiance pictures http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg and Swastikas pictures http://rexcurry.net/swastika3clear.jpg expose shocking secrets about American history.

    Socialists in the USA originated the Nazi salute, robotic group-chanting to flags, Nazism, flag fetishism, and the modern swastika as “S” symbolism for “Socialism.” http://rexcurry.net/pledge2.html

    Much of that history is the history of the Pledge Of Allegiance. A new documentary video movie exposes the shocking facts on youtube

    and here http://rexcurry.net/pledge-of-allegiance-rexcurrydotnet.wmv
    and on google video
    and teacher tube http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=77b16a03aa81f09499f2

    Those historical facts explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA’s growing police state. They are reasons for massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.

    The “Nazi salute” is more accurately called the “American salute” as it was created and popularized by national socialists in the USA. It was the early salute of the Pledge of Allegiance. The Pledge was written by Francis Bellamy. http://rexcurry.net/pledgetragedy.html Francis Bellamy was cousin and cohort of Edward Bellamy. http://rexcurry.net/pledgebackward.html Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy were self-proclaimed socialists in the Nationalism movement and they promoted military socialism.

    They wanted the government to take over education and use it to spread their worship of government. When the government granted their wish, the government’s schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy. The official racism and segregation was a bad example three decades before the National Socialist German Workers Party, and decades afterward.

    The Pledge was mandated by law in government schools for three decades before, and through, the creation of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. http://rexcurry.net/bellamy-edward-karl-marx.html

    Many people do not know that the term “Nazi” means “National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” Members of the horrid group did not call themselves Nazis. In that sense, there was no Nazi Party. They also did not call themselves Fascists. They called themselves socialists, just as their name indicates.

    The historian Dr. Rex Curry showed that the early Pledge Of Allegiance did not use an ancient Roman salute, and that the ‘ancient Roman salute’ myth came from the Pledge Of Allegiance. The discoveries have been reviewed and verified on wikipedia http://rexcurry.net/roman-salute-metropolitan-museum-of-art.html

    The original pledge was anti libertarian and began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children casually performing the forced ritual chanting. Due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute via the USA’s Pledge Of Allegiance.

    Media coverage about the discoveries continues to grow http://rexcurry.net/audio-rex-curry-podcast-radio.html

    Fan mail for work exposing the Pledge’s poisonous pedigree is at http://rexcurry.net/pledge_heart.html

    And listen at http://odeo.com/audio/1747108/view

    The Pledge’s early salute caused quite a Fuhrer/furor. The dogma behind the Pledge was the same dogma that led to the socialist Wholecost (of which the Holocaust was a part): 62 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 49 million under the Peoples’ Republic of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. It was the worst slaughter of humanity ever.

    People were persecuted (beatings, lynchings, etc) for refusing to perform robotic chanting to the national flag at the same time in government schools in the USA and Germany (to the American flag, and to the German swastika flag).

    American socialists (e.g. Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy teamed with the Theosophical Society and Freemasons) bear some blame for altering the notorious symbol used as overlapping S-letters for “socialism” under the National Socialist German Workers Party.

    The same symbol was used by the Theosophical Society during the time when the Bellamys, Freemasons and the Theosophical Society worked together to promote socialism.

    They also originated and helped to spread the stiff arm salute via the Pledge of Allegiance at their meetings.

    As German socialism’s notorious flag symbol, the swastika was deliberately turned 45 degrees to the horizontal and always oriented in the S-direction. Similar alphabetic symbolism is still visible as Volkswagen logos. http://rexcurry.net/swastika-audi-logo.JPG

    The bizarre acts in the USA began as early as 1875 and continued through the creation of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (German Nazis or NSGWP). American soldiers used the swastika symbol in WWI (against Germany) and the symbol was used by the American military during WWII. http://rexcurry.net/45th-infantry-division-swastika-sooner-soldiers.html

    The NSGWP had clear roots in National Socialism promoted by socialists in the USA. Amazing graphic images that prove the point are at http://rexcurry.net/theosophy-madame-blavatsky-theosophical-society.html

    The USA is still the worst example in the world of bizarre laws that require robotic chanting to a national flag in government schools (socialist schools) every day for 12 years. It has changed generations of Americans from libertarians to authoritarians. The government bamboozled individuals into believing that collective robotic chanting in government schools daily is a beautiful expression of freedom. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html

    The following words have probably been more widely misconstrued than any other words in the English language:

    “make no law respecting an establishment of religion”,

    You will understand this better if you substitute “state church” for “establishment”. In other words Jefferson did not want to see a state church created. Furthermore he and Monroe were clearly against government medaling with religion in any way. His letter to Danbury makes this clear. Scholars have been over and over this ground for 200 years. Let it be.

    The public schools are for everyone, and must therefore remain neutral. It is better to leave God out of it and get on with reading, writing and arithmetic. There is far too much wasted energy being put into this issue.

  3. mklasing Says:

    Richard I agree with what you are saying—mostly. The real attack here by Dr. Newdow is against the use of “God” in the pledge. He cannot actually be seriously attacking schools that say the pledge. Here is why:

    Although personally I think taking God out of school is a horrible mistake in our culture–as an attorney and being intellectually honest–I’m okay with schools not being allowed (public schools) to teach children Christianity as the religion they should follow. However, I see nothing wrong with such a class being offered as an elective course. That being said, since the saying the pledge is optional, since there is no penalty on a student for not saying it or for not believing that our Nation was founded “under God” (even though it clearly was intended that way by the framers), there is no “establishment” of religion by the State. Further, schools are quasi-governmental entities anyway. Should a school fail a student for not acknowledging God-then I would definitely have a problem-Saying the pledge, having a “christmas choir program” taking “Easter Breaks” or “Christmas Breaks” should all be fine. If the only offense is that someone is offended then I come back to one of my long-standing premises: THE CONSTITUTION DOES NOT GUARANTEE AN INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM FROM BEING OFFENDED. If it did, I would sue all of the Democrat candidates for President because each one of them has offended me at least once. Hmmmmmm… 🙂
