Michael Newdow – the Man who Ran from God

newdow1-sized.jpgMichael Newdow is an atheist in San Francisco, who is apparently so determined to get as far from God as possible that he not only wants to remove the phrase “under God” from the pledge of allegiance, but now, wants to also remove it from United States’ currency.

FoxNews/A.P.:

A three-judge panel from that court was to hear arguments in the case on Tuesday. The same panel also was to hear arguments in Newdow’s case against the national motto, “In God We Trust.”

In 2005, Newdow sued Congress and several federal officials, arguing that making money with the motto on it violated the First Amendment clause requiring the separation of church and state.

Last year, a federal judge in Sacramento disagreed, saying the words did not violate Newdow’s atheism. Newdow appealed.

In case anyone has forgotten, this all started as a bitter custody battle between Newdow and a woman with whom he shares a child. (Also see WorldNetDaily – his daughter and her mother are Christian.)

Michael Newdow is worrying needlessly. If he remains on the path he’s treading, God won’t be where he’s going. This was sent to me by 1389, who added:

Needed: One-way ticket to that paradise for militant atheists, North Korea! We oughta take up a collection to send him there….

I don’t believe Newdow can win this even with a few activist judges acting on his behalf but Newdow is persistent. He’ll keep banging the drum just like the gay marriage initiative. Eventually people tune out and quit paying attention. Don’t tune this issue out America. The “freedom from religion groups” are giving it their all to remove any vestige of faith in the public square. If history tells us anything, to eliminate something first you must privatize it. And elimination is the ultimate goal.

About Newdow: whether it was Newdow’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder (I’m no psychologist but that much is evident) that led to his divorce, or the divorce that helped punctuate his disorder, Newdow is a very troubled man. It is no wonder that his ex-wife and daughter have fled from him.

And Newdow reminds me of one particularly obsessed blog owner who shall go unnamed…

Some one should remind him that he lives in a democracy and that there are many people who like things as they are.

“For centuries now men have been debating the existence of God. Just think about that; men who were created by God debating about whether or not that God exists, little men attempting to bring the almighty Creator before the bar of their finite judgment! If it were not such a crime it might be something to laugh at.

But the fact of the matter is that men will not sit in judgment upon God, but God will sit in judgment upon man. And in that great and terrible day of judgment, all delusions will be set aside and all self-deceptions will be swept away. Everything will finally be set right and reality will be clearly seen by all of mankind. And in that day, it will be acknowledged by all that atheists did not exist….”

I must respectfully disagree with you and your responders. Michael Newdow may be running away from God, and if God exists then he’ll pay for that in time. But the argument over God’s existence or non-existence is not the point here. The point is we live in America, and the first amendment says “congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” In other words the government shall not endorse any religion, and at the same time, not restrict anyone from practicing their faith how they want. Having “In God We Trust” on legal tender and “under God” in the pledge of allegiance is a direct endorsement of not just God, but a Christian God. Don’t believe me? Try changing “God,” in either of those statements to “Gods” or “Allah.” If their of those alternatives were used, I would imagine there would be quite a outcry, and with good reason. The First Amendment is there to protect all of us from be persecuted by our government. Imagine if the majority of those in power held a different religious belief than you. That’s how millions of Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Wiccans, Atheists, and even Jews feel being the minority in America. And yes, Gramfan, we do live in a democracy, but thankfully the first amendment is not suspect to majority rule. It is a right which shall not be taken away by the government from ANYONE for ANY REASON. The Bill of Rights is there to protect the minority. Even if it’s a minority of one.

He will have his day for the Lord judges and knows what is just. Our great nation was made in His Almighty image and to disparage it is sacrilegious. He is a heathen that should be put in his place.

Michael Newdow needs our prayers more than anybody does. This man will no doubt have a terrible eternity as a result of his attempt to kill God. Satan has complete control over Mr. Newdow and I wonder if Michael even knows it. I am a sinner. We all are. But Mr. Newdow treads on dangerous ground. Let those who walk behind him go a different path than the rest of us.
