Fox News host: Atheists 'don't have to live here'

By Daniel BurkeCNN Belief Blog Co-Editor
[twitter-follow screen_name='BurkeCNN']

(CNN) - Fox News pundit Dana Perino said she's "tired" of atheists attempting to remove the phrase "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, adding, "if these people really don't like it, they don't have to live here."

The co-host of Fox's "The Five" was referring to a suit brought by the American Humanist Association in Massachusetts, where the state's Supreme Judicial Court heard a challenge to the pledge on Wednesday.

The group's executive director, Roy Speckhardt, called the suit "the first challenge of its kind," but Perino begged to differ.

Perino, who was White House press secretary for George W. Bush from 2007-2009, said she recalled working at the Justice Department in 2001 "and a lawsuit like this came through."

The former Bush spokeswoman added that "before the day had finished the United States Senate and the House of Representatives had both passed resolutions saying that they were for keeping ‘under God’ in the pledge."

"If these people don't like it, they don't have to live here," Perino added.

David Silverman, president of the American Atheists, called Perino's comments "bigotry."

"I, for one, am tired of those Christians, like Ms. Perino, who think that equality is somehow un-American," Silverman said. "If Ms. Perino doesn't like being only equal, it is she who will have to leave America to some other country that doesn't value religious liberty."

In 2002, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with atheist Michael Newdow who argued that the words "under God" in the pledge amounted to an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion. The Supreme Court overturned that ruling.

Congress added the words "under God" in 1954 amid the red scare over the Soviet Union. In November 2002, after the Newdow ruling, Congress passed a law reaffirming "under God" in the pledge.

Greg Gutfeld, another co-host on "The Five," continued the discussion after Perino, saying the Pledge of Allegiance "is not a prayer, it's a patriotic exercise. In a sense, it's basically saying: Thanks for giving us the freedom to be an atheist."

The Massachusetts case, which was brought by an unidentified family of a student at a school in suburban Boston, will be argued on the premise that the pledge violates the Equal Rights Amendment of the Massachusetts Constitution.

It is the first such case to be tried on the state level: All previous attempts have been argued in federal court on the grounds that "under God" was an unconstitutional violation of the separation of church and state.

    Why are Christians always so offended when Atheists want to revert the pledge to its original form. Atheists have been a big part of this country since its founding, so why be exclusionary with our pledge of allegiance? I don't understand how the original pledge hurts Christians.

    • tom

      I could have used your same argument to say the pledge should never have been changed in 1954. For all of those that wanted to add "under God" they should have been told to get over it.

    • Richard Cranium

      Why have a pledge that is supposed to be for all of we the people, that exludes so many of we the people. The pastor who wrote the original did not include a reference to any gods, and the phrase was added illegaly in the fifties. Time to set it right. Next is removing the lie "in god we trust" from our money and all government buildings.

        Freedoms such as religious divisions with regards to Christendom and the Muslim Brotherhoods of Islamic religions are to become a U.S. quagmire within the "framed works" of Constitutionalized America..? Are eyeing Americans taking the social plunge against Christendom's core values while allowing Islamist revolutionaries of Jihadist groupings upon American soil..?

        Agree with you, Richard! It's a shame that the original pledge was tampered with in the 1950s. It was fine without 'under God.' Now it's a gross violation of the sacred separation of church and state.

      "Get over it, already" Come, now. If you really thought others should just get over it then you too should be able to just get over removing these words which were not even part of the original pledge and the pledge was not even something conceived of at the founding of the country.

    • TeaFree

      If it said "in no god we trust", you would be crying and stamping your foot to have it removed. How then would you feel if someone told you, to "just not say it"? This is an idiotic double standard. It isn't just about atheists, there are many religions that have no concept of a god, buddhism, taoism, etc. We are talking about removing a phrase, not adding one....and it's for the equality of all. Last time I checked it was freedom for all, not freedom for the Christians. SMH

    FYI>> The seperation of church and state was to protect the church from the state, not the other way around. If and when the atheist succeed in changing everything to suit them, let's see how they react when their beliefs (or non beliefs) are challanged in court.

      That's the way our country works–if you think something is wrong, you challenge it in court and the court decides const.itutionality. What's wrong with that?

      September 10, 2013 at 10:01 am |

        • fyi

          Becky,

          Here's a start in your "look it up":

          “Religious inst.itutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the 'wall of separation between church and state,' therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.” - Thomas Jefferson

          “The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.”― James Madison
          (*Madison was referring to the State religions of Europe.)

          p.s. Becky, you need to learn to spell too.

          September 10, 2013 at 3:46 pm |
    • Doris

      Ah, but Becky you are leaving out the Establishment Clause. We must not forget that. Let's get some reflections on that important component of the 1st Amendment:

      James Madison (4th POTUS, chief architect of the U.S. Constitution & the Bill of Rights):

      "Every new & successful example therefore of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters, is of importance. And I have no doubt that every new example, will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt. will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.

      The Civil Govt, tho' bereft of everything like an associated hierarchy, possesses the requisite stability and performs its functions with complete success, Whilst the number, the industry, and the morality of the Priesthood, & the devotion of the people have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the Church from the State."

      Thomas Jefferson:

      "Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man & his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state."

      September 10, 2013 at 10:06 am |
    • BU2B

      Separation of church and state was designed to keep the government from endorsing a religion. Adding "under dog" do the pledge clearly violates this.

      September 10, 2013 at 10:07 am |
    • Hugh McMichael

      "Under God" was not added to the Pledge until 1954. "In God We Trust" was not adopted as the official motto until 1956 and did not appear on currency until 1957. Get rid of it. Christians are certainly not "discriminated" against in this country, they are free to worship in any way they choose. However, they are NOT allowed to force their religion down any other persons throat, be they Muslim, Hindu, Scientologist or believers in any other mass delusion. Would Christians feel the same way if the Pledge stated "one nation, under Allah" or the motto was "In Cthulhu We Trust"?

      September 10, 2013 at 10:11 am |
    • truthprevails1

      You're an idiot. Separation of church and state protects EVERYONE, not just christards. It means that the church can't step in to the political or public arena (thus pushing their unfounded beliefs on everyone) and in turn they remain tax free. Do some research instead of being a sheep and only listening to what you Momma and Daddy (aka Grandpa) spew to you.

      'If and when the atheist succeed in changing everything to suit them, let's see how they react when their beliefs (or non beliefs) are challanged in court.'

      interesting, so when atheists have everything then see how they like being challenged? does that mean then that you are admitting that christianity is currently pushing itself into everything and there isnt 'equality'?

      September 10, 2013 at 10:13 am |
    • JFH

      Thomas Jefferson said that the gov't shall not interfere with religion and religion shall not interfere with gov't. That there shall be a wall of separation between the two. Meaning that they should be independent of one another, or secular.

      September 10, 2013 at 10:17 am |
    • Reality Check

      Becky, that is utter nonsense. What challenge would there be to a non-belief. A separation of Church and State means the State can not force religious beliefs on you, i.e. an atheist can not be forced to become Muslim, a Christian Jewish, a Jew Zoroastrian, etc.

      I wonder if Christians really understand that those words imply America should be one nation under Allah.

      September 10, 2013 at 10:20 am |
    • Rita

      Becky,

      Hi Becky,

      You are incorrect.

      'Separation of church and state' is a doctrine meant to ensure that the state cannot dictate one's religion.

      Those who settled in the colonies in the 1600s were often feeling monarchies that were imposing their religion on the populace. They were forced to be a part of the Church of England, et.al. And they wanted to be free to practice their own religion, so they left to form this country. Thankfully, our government does not impose any religion on us.

      Let's keep it that way! Let's support separation of church and state. You practice your religion to your heart's content, but don't allow the government to be involved in religion.

    "If Ms. Perino doesn't like being only equal, it is she who will have to leave America to some other country that doesn't value religious liberty." {D.Silverman, American Atheists president, referring to ‘C.I.N.O.’Perino's unprofessional comments}

    Although I remain a polytheist, (having left ancestral monotheism…A.S.A.P.), I give atheists/agnostics a LOT of credit!

    BTW: One DOESN’T see atheists &/or agnostics carjacking airliners and flying them into buildings!

    Atheists &/or agnostics seldom, if ever, bomb houses of worship, or abortion providers, for that matter!
    Atheists &/or agnostics DON’T hold up silly, cruel, scientifically preposterous signs indicating their Deity hates some of His/Her’s/It’s (gay) creations, loves I.E.D.’s, or targets specific countries for Dietistic vengeance, as a whole!

    Intolerant Monotheists gave humanity the destroyed World Trade Center complex & damaged pentagon, a 12 year corporate war in Iraq, etc., costing $3-trillion & counting…
    A million+ ‘Collaterals, Damaged’;
    …NOT including the military & civilian contractors, dead, missing, maimed!

    Atheists &/or agnostics DON’T attempt to avoid moral, criminal, civil & financial responsibility for their wars via puerile rhetoric, such as:
    ‘plausible deniability’, ‘collaterals, damaged’, ‘we-had-to-destroy-the-village-to-save-it’, & such like verbal monstrosities!

      I really appreciate all of the innuendo that you have in your comment...I Graduated from religion long ago however I feel that this entire Atheist vs. Christians thing is so useless and a waste of valuable energy...Where did you get these facts you are quoting or are these just the un-verifiable rantings of a person on his own soapbox...? If Atheist/Agnostics do not believe in God, that is their right, just as it is my right to believe in what I believe, however I do not have the right to impose my beliefs on others...Whether or not they agree with the concept, America has the right to believe that they are a Nation "Under God", even if they are not!

      Regardless of what anyone believes, America is a Nation Under Something, correct? Why not be "Under God"?

      I feel that whomever doesn't like EVERYTHING about America, can always find themselves another country to reside in...Then I say to them, try out your Atheism where ever you go and see how that works for you, ok?

      A small part of The Greatness of this Country is that we all have the right to do as we desire-And to receive the benefits or consequences of those desires!

    I was in school when it changed and frankly didn't see why then or now. As for Ms. Perino apparently she has forgotten that this country was founded to be free to practice any religion or not, it is that which makes us great. As for removing under God from the Pledge, i don't see that it is going to damage us in any way. We made up to 1954 without it I think we will survive the future. It is how we treat each other as Americans that is what makes us great, not which God we choose or choose not to believe in. Something we have forgotten these past 50 plus years. People get a grip and how i wish the Fox news station did not exist. Such incredible misinformation from supposedly a learned group of people. That Ms. Perino perhaps shares my heritage makes me ill also.

    Let's see... A corrupt government where people say stupid things.. What else is new? Trouble in the Middle East?

    Look, we live in a nation where you cannot be punished for the things that you say – and that is a good freedom to have. Obviously, people are going to eventually say things that offend you, but it's just someone's opinion, and everybody's got one. Whatever happened to the "sticks and stones" poem that we all learned in kindergarten?

    My father in law – brilliant man – says "some people talk just to hear their head rattle..." So someone says something you don't like. Does that REALLY affect you? Nope. Only if you let it.

    It's like that senator who said: "If you put that military installation all on one side of that island, then I'm worried that the island is going to tip over..." You've just got to stand back and let them prove to the world that their brains have leaked out of their ears YEARS ago... Then go on about your day.

        The phrase was illegally added in the fifties. Either prove that there is a god to be under or remove it. It was supposed to be for all of we the people, and the christians corrupted it and took it from we the people.

        Good idea. We can add the words "or no God at all" and you can stay silent.

        And Americans also have the right to challenge the legality of a phrase added to the pledge long after the pledge had become a part of our culture. It was "One nation, indivisible" until Cold War christians decided to divide it with their god.

        Well then, how about we change the phrase to "One nation, under Allah" and see how you like it? All you've got to do is remain silent right?

      "we live in a nation where you cannot be punished for the things that you say "

      Please, please, please, please, go to a local radio station, buy some air time and repeat the "N" word 1000 times.

      Post something derogatory (just your opinion) about your boss on Face Book

      Tell all your co-workers you're an Atheist and tell them why you think the Christian God and Jesus are just mythological figures.

          I only asked a question. Why does that offend you? Are all atheist as angry as you? Do you think everyone is out to get you? You should have your meds upped.

          No honey, you were ignorant. Meds are usually required by those who hear voices...you should check in to it. 🙂

    Heard all of these before ...
    Atheists don't need to live here
    Jews don't need to live here
    Buddhists don't need to live here
    Blacks don't need to live here
    Dana Perino just wants everyone she disagrees with or doesn't like to leave the country. Typical Fox news small mindedness. Maybe George Washington, James Monroe, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, Ethan Allen and John Adams none of whom believed in Dana Perino's personal God should have stayed here and helped to found this country.

      Too bad we don't believe any Hell exists. Your threats are likened to that of a hippie threatening to "punch you in your aura". lol
