Freedom From Religion Foundation Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
Reasoning:

“The other piece of good news is that Michael Newdow is ably taking another challenge of the religious corruption of the Pledge of Allegiance to the Ninth Circuit. The Freedom From Religion Foundation office, which is offering a friend of the court brief in the suit, has just read Mike’s very fine brief. We think if anyone has a chance of prevailing, it will be Mike Newdow. Even if our current Congress has been partially shanghaied by the Religious Right, the law is on his side, and so is his persistence!”
