Pro to the question "Should the Words "under God" Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
"There is nothing more American than the Pledge of Allegiance and an acknowledgement of God is at the heart of our founding principles and is our nation's motto. The district court ruling [Eastern District of California's Newdow v. U.S. Congress ruling] seriously undermines our ability as a nation to encourage civic pride, respect for our heritage, and much-needed patriotism in our public square."
Experts JD's (lawyers), US Presidents, federal appellate opinions, US Founding Fathers, Members of Congress, members of state legislative bodies with significant involvement in, or related to, the "under God" conflict and/or government and constitutional law, and those with PhD's in government, constitutional law or other relevant fields.
