Pro to the question "Should the Words "under God" Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
"The greatest divisions in the United States have come on the heels of some errant court decision: the Civil War, Separate But Equal Education, Obscenity Rulings, Abortion, Taking God out of the classroom, Partial Birth Abortion, and most recently, the utter denial of God. The very rule of law is at stake if we continue to allow such judicial activism and law-breaking by those who would seek to impose their social policies on the rest of this nation by circumventing the legislative process through judicial feat. I commend my colleagues, for taking action today, to stop the court's threat to the very underpinning that holds this nation together."
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.
