Secular Coalition Action Alert: Protect Courts' Power to Rule on Pledge

From the Secular Coalition for America:

The House Judiciary Committee this week took up HR 2389, a bill which would strip all federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, of the power to decide the Constitutionality of the Pledge of Allegiance or its recitation. This legislation would set a dangerous precedent for chipping away at the checks and balances that our three independent branches of government (executive, legislative, and judicial) have given our nation over the past two hundred plus years. Moreover, it attacks the Constitutional rights of the Secular Coalition constituency.

Please take a stand against court-stripping by the religious right. For more information about this issue and a sample letter to send members of the House Judiciary Committee, visit this page on our Web site: http://www.secular.org/activism/courtstripping06.html
