"Under God" To Stay in Pledge Of Allegiance Voters Say it is Constitutional

WASHINGTON, March 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that teacher-led recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools, including the words "under God," does not violate the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  "The Pledge is constitutional," concluded the court, dismissing the latest attack by atheist Michael Newdow to remove every reference to God from the public square.
Penny Young Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America (CWA), said, "This is a great victory for all Americans and the rule of law.  There is no question that this nation was founded on the fundamental belief that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights.  We are pleased that the Ninth Circuit recognized that and dismissed the misguided efforts to rewrite history and alter the character of our nation through judicial fiat."
Mario Diaz, Esq., CWA's Policy Director for Legal Issues, said, "Even the most activist and most overturned court in the country managed to recognize that there is no basis in history or in law that would require the removal of the words 'under God' from the Pledge of Allegiance.  The court correctly pointed out that the mere mention of God does not immediately establish a religion.  Newdow and other progressives want the government to be hostile to religion, an idea that has been emphatically rejected by the Supreme Court and actually runs counter to our form of government.  All Americans, including atheists, win with this decision by the Ninth Circuit."

After years of hearing many people say that "Under God" is unconstitutional and fighting to have it removed once and for all from our Pledge Of Allegiance and even our U.S Money. Saying it violates separation of church and state.   We are happy that the finally vote is in and that those who voted on this issue say it IS Constitutional.  
This pledge has been around nearly since the beginning of our Country and why after hundreds of years is it only now being called unconstitutional by some? Our Country was founded on Christian and Jewish Values from the Holy Bible The Ten Commandments were what we founded our laws on.

We commend those who's vote has kept "Under God" Part of Pledge and U.S. history for years to come.
