Pro to the question "Should the Words "under God" Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
"Words do not express my outrage over this. For a court of law to render our pledge of allegiance unconstitutional is astounding to me. When I walk into the Capitol, I see the words 'In God We Trust.' It is on our currency, it is one of the core foundations this great nation was founded upon. We are a nation founded upon the acknowledgment of our Creator, this coming from the original flames of freedom by our forefathers in the 1700's. We are a nation that has sacrificed countless lives in defense of our freedoms, its' flag, and the documents that forged that freedom. Last September we came together as a Nation, under our flag, and stood up against a terrible attack against our freedoms. Can our children no longer sing 'God Bless America' or 'America the Beautiful?' The decision rendered by these judges makes no sense to me."
