DNC Religious Outreach Adviser Backed Atheist's "Under God" Lawsuit
The Washington Times reports this morning that the Democratic National Committee's "new adviser for religious outreach was one of 32 signatories on a U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief backing an atheist who sought to remove the words 'under God' from the Pledge of Allegiance." In February, the Rev. Brenda Bartella Peterson "was one of almost three dozen Christian and Jewish clergy who along with the Unitarian Universalist Association asked the Supreme Court to support Michael Newdow, the California plaintiff trying to change the Pledge's wording."
