    "So, Your Honor, the Pledge is unconstitutional because it says 'Under God.' Guess that means when you were sworn in with your hand on a Bible, and at the end of your oath repeated, 'So Help Me God' that makes your job unconstitutional, therefore you have no job, which means your ruling doesn't mean squat!"

    They didn't rule the Pledge of Allegiance was unconstitutional. They ruled that having public school children recite the Pledge with the words "under God" in it was unconstitutional. The Pledge is perfectly OK without the words "under God" which were, of course, added in 1953 about 50 years after the Pledge was written.

    A judge doesn't have to use the term "So help me God" or swear on a Bible to be sworn in; he may simply affirm if he chooses to. It's in the Constitution; I'll give you a cookie if you can find it on your own.

    Why is it that the more secular-minded here that must continually correct false assertions made by our ethereally-inclined brothers and sisters?

    So yeah . . . the judges, 9th Circuit. Good job.

    Forcing first-grade kids to swear to a flag everyday and say words in 'indivisible', 'republic', and 'liberty' is just silly. Damn Cold War. Damn frightened, ignorant 1950's McCarthy-style lummoxes.

    Edit: This was another damn double post.

    I doubt that you knew ANY of the information I gave in my post as I'm sure your sources of info are right wing websites and propaganda mills. I wouldn't be surprised if your entire first post was a cut and paste that you didn't give credit for.

    The phrase "one Nation indivisible" had tremendous emotional meaning two decades after the end of the Civil War. This history, and the power of those words, were wrecked by the anti-communist addition to the pledge.

    Join me in restoring the Pledge of Allegiance to its original beauty and power:

    I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

    Brainy Dictionary

    Indivisible
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Not divisible; incapable of being divided, separated, or broken;
    not separable into parts.


    Well with God in the pledge being indivisible is a lie since people
    are divided, without God being indivisible is a lie for the same reason.
    Since we are seemly a country divided into our liberal or conservative
    camps, or our God fearing, godless camps, I'd say it is a work in
    progress no matter how you look at it. Since only a tolerant people,
    those that really allow live and let live can be indivisible the clamor
    alone on that pledge shows us we have fallen short of what our
    forefathers had hoped for.
