Gingrich Calls for Removal of Judge Who Ruled Prayer Not Allowed at Graduation

Human Events launches a petition to remind activist judges they can’t attack God.

 

While many people were shocked when NBC edited out the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance, most people have no idea about the fight in Texas to stop a federal judge from arresting anyone who mentioned “God,” “prayer,” or even said “amen” at a high school graduation.

It’s true: Judge Fred Biery has ruled it unconstitutional for these words to be uttered at a high school graduation.

While citizens can’t kick these federal judges out of office, we can abolish their positions, points out Newt Gingrich. In a statement released today, Gingrich called for Judge Biery’s office to be eliminated, and launched a petition calling for the move.   As Gingrich explains in his just released book A Nation Like No Other, “The final power in America lies not with judges or presidents or bureaucrats, but with the American people. We loan power to the government. And as Jefferson demonstrated dramatically when he abolished eighteen federal judgeships, we can take it back when it is abused.”

Human Events, building on the former speaker’s criticism, has launched a petition to abolish Federal District Judge Fred Biery’s judgeship in the U.S. District Court for Western Texas. Says Gingrich: “This will help us send a message to activist judges: You can’t erase God from America.
