About 45 years tardy, one of our nation’s courts ruled that adding “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance turns it into a state-sponsored (or -mandated) prayer, and therefore makes it un-Constitutional.
Now everyone near a microphone or a TV camera is shoving people aside to go on-record as being for the Pledge, and against the non-“common-sense” judges.
The fact is, any time Congress is voting to add the word “God” to anything, it’s probably a violation of the separation of church and state.
Dumbya’s assertions notwithstanding, the legal foundation of the United States of America is the Constitution, and if you’ve read it, you may know that the word “God” does not appear anywhere in it.
Senators are rushing to put together a Constitutional amendment to allow the Pledge. Between that and the power grab perpetrated by Bush and abetted by Ashcroft, that crash you hear may well be the shattering of the finest piece of legislation ever enacted.
