PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE & NATIONAL MOTTO

 

By the authority vested in me as Commander of the Department of California and Pacific, by the Department Bylaws, the National Constitution and Regulations, and National Policies, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1: The Pledge of Allegiance is as follows: I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of American, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. The National Motto is: In God We Trust.

Section 2: On 26 June 2002 a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled in the case of Newdow v. United States Congress that the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance are unconstitutional as "a religious act" in violation of the Establishment Clause.

Section 3: On 28 February 2003 the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit amended its Order of June 2002 by refusing to rehear the Newdow case. The Court subsequently stayed its own decision, pending an appeal to the United States Supreme Court.

Section 4: The American Family Association (AFA), in cooperation with WePledge.com, is trying to secure ten million signatures for a constitutional amendment to save the Pledge of Allegiance and our National Motto. Their website is: http://www.wepledge.com.

Section 5: There are currently two pieces of legislation that have been introduced in Congress and would accomplish the goals of the AFA. In the House of Representatives: H.J.Res. 26 (introduced on 27 February 2003 by Congressman Lucas of Oklahoma), proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to protect the Pledge of Allegiance. Its companion Bill in the Senate is S.J.Res. 7 (introduced 3 March 2003 by Senator Landrieu of Louisiana), proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to the reference to God in the Pledge of Allegiance and on United States currency. Both Bills have been assigned to their respective committee on the Judiciary where they are awaiting further action.

Section 6: Brothers are encouraged to sign the electronic petition at www.wepledge.com and to write their representatives in Congress in support of maintaining the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance and preserving the words "In God We Trust" as our National Motto.
