Jon Carroll Biography

Writer for the San Francisco Chronicle
Con to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"

“As a matter of common sense, the court’s ruling is both sensible and obvious. ‘Under God’ is intrusive and unnecessary in a pledge of patriotism; we’re not speaking as believers; we are speaking as citizens.”

“Atheists and Pantheists May Take a Moment to Bask in Victory,” San Francisco Chronicle, June 27, 2002
