In God We Trust National Chairman Bishop Council Nedd II attended the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference(CPAC) held at the National Harbor, Maryland, interviewing both politicians and attendees on the current state of religious tolerance in America. From politicians like Colonel Allen West and Donald Trump, to every day citizens that are concerned with the direction America is heading, Nedd addressed the issues of American culture, clashes of values, and the actions of government and radical anti-religious activists.
“There is a consensus among conservative Americans that the traditional role of religion is disappearing in American culture,” states Nedd. “People of faith are ostracized in our popular culture. Religious characters in movies and television shows are regularly portrayed as gullible oafs, judgmental bigots or outright hypocrites. The cultural elite seem to want people to look to them for guidance, rather than to God. Americans of faith need to push back against the radical secular minority imposing itself on the rest of America,” continued Nedd.
Bishop Nedd spent three days at this year’s conference interviewing person after person on the current state of religion in America by asking one simple question: Does America Hate God? “The response from nearly every person I spoke with at the convention is that there is a big problem in America today, and the only solution is to push back against the anti-religion movement and remind America that this country was founded on the principal of One Nation Under God,” Nedd concluded.
Congressman Walter Jones Reintroduces Pray In Jesus’ Name Act into 114th Congress
Congressman Walter Jones, representing North Carolina’s Third Congressional District, has reintroduced his “Pray In Jesus’ Name Act” into the 114th Congress, and called on In God We Trust and our supporters to help him gain cosponsors for this critical piece of legislation.
“In God We Trust has had a great working relationship with Congressman Jones for years,” explains Bishop Nedd. “I am thrilled that he has once again asked In God We Trust and our loyal supporters to help him in his mission to give military chaplains the power to use God’s grace to comfort our soldiers as they head into harm’s way abroad,” continued Nedd.
In God We Trust currently has more than 175,000 signed petitions from our loyal members and supporters calling for an immediate hearing, and ultimate vote for final passage, on Congressman Walter Jones’ legislation, H.R. 148, the “Pray in Jesus’ Name” Act. “We put together a letter of support for H.R. 148, ‘The Pray In Jesus’ Name Act,’ and have sent it to every member of the House of Representatives urging them to lend their support to our military chaplains,” continued Nedd. “However we still need our loyal supporters to contact their Congressmen and demand that they cosponsor H.R. 148.”
