Nudnik - n. U.S. colloq. Esp. in Jewish usage: a pestering, nagging, or irritating person

As the anti-religion crusade of the Left has progressed, many on the right questioned where the deletion of God from public life would end; first nativity scenes, then the pledge of allegiance, and now the Declaration of Independence. Reuters reports:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A California teacher has been barred by his school from giving students documents from American history that refer to God -- including the Declaration of Independence.
Among the materials she has rejected, according to Williams, are excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, George Washington's journal, John Adams' diary, Samuel Adams' "The Rights of the Colonists" and William Penn's "The Frame of Government of Pennsylvania."
This is an attempt at the wholesale rewriting of US history. It is beyond argument that the Founders were deeply religious men and saw themselves doing the work of God (men are endowed with rights by God, not by other men) . To now attempt to suppress that is the disowning of our own history. Undoubtedly there will be a backlash against these attempts to completely remove God from public life.

And by the way, if the principal is so against God, is she also against US currency bearing the words "In God We Trust"?
