Did you know the pledge

Did you know the pledge of allegiance didn’t use to contain the phrase “under god” in it? Recently, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this phrase unconstitutional.

A man in Sacramento named Mike Newdow is responsible for this ruling, and is also suing the USA for several other things related to separation of church and state.

All I’ve got to say about this stuff: It’s about fucking time.

Another of this guy’s suits has to do with prayers at the Presidential Inauguration ceremony.

Searching for this guy brought up the site http://www.au.org/, or Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. That’s where I found out about the court ruling. I’ve got a lot more reading to do…

  1. I always thought that phrase was stupid.

    The same with “I swear to god.” As a kid, I always said it when I was lying. Like inside, I was crossing my agnostic fingers or something.
