Dean of the School of Law of the University of Texas at Austin
Con to the question "Should the Words "under God" Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
"A pledge policy that offers no officially recognized, fully secular alternative has another deep constitutional vice. It conveys the unmistakable message that those who find it distasteful or an affront to their system of beliefs to pledge their allegiance to a nation described as being 'under God' are not worthy of participating in a community ceremony of national allegiance."
Lawrence G. Sager Amicus Brief, Elk Grove United School District v. Michael A. Newdow, 2003
