In God We Trust’s legislative team met recently with Congressman Joe Heck, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Military Personnel, to urge the Chairman to hold a hearing to advance Congressman Walter Jones’ Pray In Jesus’ Name Act out of committee and to the House floor for a formal vote.
“We have an incredible opportunity to make a major push against the atheist movement in America,” states Nedd. “Our legislative team tried in vain for the entirety of the 113th Congress to try and get the former Chairman of the Subcommittee on Military Personnel to hold a hearing on The Pray In Jesus’ Name Act so that the entire Congress could openly debate on an issue that will certainly gain national attention as the presidential debates continue. Chairman Heck’s staff was very generous with their time and have asked that I meet with the Chairman personally to discuss the issue further,” concludes Nedd.
“That’s where your participation can make all the difference in the world. When In God We Trust meets with influential members of Congress and we bring along stacks and stacks of your signed petitions, it’s like you’re standing right beside me. Thank you.”
Bishop Nedd Joins Fox News for Panel Discussion on Republican Presidential Debate
In God We Trust National Chairman Bishop Council Nedd II (seated front row, right side) was invited to join a panel discussion on the initial Republican Presidential Debate.
In God We Trust National Chairman Bishop Council Nedd II joined Fox News and the nationally broadcast “Kelly Files” in New York City recently to participate in a panel discussion to discuss the first Republican Presidential Debate.
“I thought the candidates did as well as they could, considering the blistering questions posed by the moderators,” states Nedd. “What concerns me more though was a genuine lack of attention to people of faith, and religion in general,” continued Nedd. “Evangelicals and people of faith make up an incredible block of the Republican Party, and I thought it was important to reach out to them specifically in the first debate. Unfortunately, it became apparent as the debate rolled on that this was more of a ratings grab then a true debate on the issues that are facing this great country.”
