Fidelis Launches Christmas Ad Campaign; Celebrates America's Judeo-Christian Faith Traditions, Defends Judge Alito

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Today, Fidelis launched the first phase of an advertising campaign that celebrates America's Judeo-Christian faith traditions and defends Judge Samuel Alito.
Fidelis President Joseph Cella stated: "This season is a special time when many Americans commemorate our Judeo-Christian roots. So while we prepare for our celebrations and give thanks for our treasured religious freedom, we unfortunately have to prepare for those freedoms to be attacked by the ACLU and their allies. These same allies are fighting to topple the nomination of Judge Alito."
The initial phase of the campaign is a web-based commercial and advertisements with a planned radio phase to follow.
"On one front of the war on religious freedom we see liberal groups like People for the American Way and the Alliance for Justice willing to attack judicial nominees over their 'deeply held' Catholic and Christian beliefs. On the other front, we see it when seasonal displays reflecting America's Judeo-Christian heritage are attacked by the ACLU and others," said Cella.
Media and some liberal groups are now calling into question his Roman Catholic faith, by asking how a so-called "Catholic majority" on the Supreme Court would influence the direction of the court. Liberal groups are also citing Judge Alito's 1999 decision in ACLU v Schundler allowing a religious holiday display in front of the Jersey City, N.J. city hall that included a Christian Nativity scene and a Jewish Menorah as proof that Judge Alito would further erode their extreme version of the "wall of separation" between church and state.
Cella said: "We will provide a vigorous defense of Judge Alito who is being brought into the war on religious freedom by liberal groups who are out of touch with American values on religion."

For thirty-five years one Jersey City tradition included a Christmas and Hanukah display in front of City Hall.
Screen goes black. (change in sound effects to slow mourning-like piano music). "ACLU sued to remove display" slowly dissolves up.
But the American Civil Liberties Union sued, forcing the city to remove the display that included a Christian Nativity scene, a Jewish Menorah, and other holiday symbols.

Judge Alito used common sense and applied the law. The kind of common sense that every American needs on the Supreme Court. Paid for by Fidelis.
