A law to introduce GOD above the US Supreme Court ?

Religious leaders in Washington are pushing a law through Congress that would acknowledge God as the sovereign source of law, liberty [and] government in the United States.

What they don't say

From the petition with Conservatives Plea for supporting the Bill we read what's NOT written on the bill:

Don't let black-robed tyrants turn America into an atheist state! Sign this petition in support of the "Constitution Restoration Act of 2004" -- H.R. 3799 and S. 2082 now before Congress. Then work with sponsor Alan Keyes to educate fellow citizens and move them to action

The U.S. House and Senate, in defense of constitutional integrity, must craft and enact legislation of various kinds, that comprehensively REMOVES from the jurisdiction of federal courts ALL matters RESERVED by the First and Tenth Amendments TO THE STATES RESPECTIVELY AND TO THE PEOPLE
