'God' Stays in Our Pledge

After years of atheist Michael Newdow pushing to have "one nation under God" removed from the Pledge of Allegiance, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last Thursday that teacher-led recitations of the pledge of allegiance in public schools is constitutional. The court ruled that the "pledge is not a prayer." In a separate decision on a companion case, the same three-judge panel unanimously rejected Newdow's challenge to the use of "In God We Trust" on coins and currency. [The Associated Press]
