ACTION ALERT: Oppose nomination of Richard H. Honaker to U.S. District Court

Feb. 11, 2008 - The Secular Coalition for America opposes the nomination of Richard H. Honaker to the U.S. District Court for the District of Wyoming and urges the Senate not to take up this nomination. On Tuesday, February 12 at 10:00 a.m. the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a hearing on his nomination.

Honaker advocates that the U.S. Constitution created a Christian nation. In a speech to the 2005 Homeschoolers of Wyoming convention, he claimed that "As Americans, if taught accurately, history can teach us that the greatest American patriots and leaders were Christians, and that there is indeed a Christian basis for American institutions of law, government, and business."

From statements like "I came to know that if the Bible is true, if Christianity is true, then it is true in family life. It is true in economics. It is true in law, and it is true in all facets of human endeavor," it is clear that Honaker’s religious beliefs would take precedence over the U.S. Constitution.

Contact your Senators to voice your opposition to this dangerous nomination.
