Rob Boston Biography

Title:
Assistant Director of Communications at Americans United for Separation of Church and State
Position:
Con to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
Reasoning:

“I think the judge [Judge Lawrence Karlton] made the right call. The whole question of patriotism and the religious content of the pledge hasn’t been explored like it should be. A student should be able to express patriotism and love of country without making a religious affirmation at the same time.”
