pledge-of-allegiance

Simply because a group feels uncomfortable with historical facts, doesn’t negate those historical facts, in that America was founded on Judeo/Christian principles that's a historical fact.

And it seems once again that this group the “American Humanist Association” has filed a discrimination law suit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District in New Jersey for simply exercising  their Constitutional right of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, at issue of course is the reference to “God”.

Roy Speckhardt, the Executive Director of the AHA told reporters; “It’s not the place of state governments to take a position on god-belief, the current pledge practice marginalized atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots, merely because they don’t believe the nation is under God.”

However the school does not require students to participate in the recitation of the pledge.

One student said in a statement; “I’m so grateful the court decided that kids like me shouldn’t be silenced just because some people object to timeless American values. “The phrase ‘under God’ protects all Americans, including atheists, because it reminds the government that it can’t take away basic human rights because it didn’t create them.”

This lawsuit seems to have as much merit of being successful as attempting to sue the US Mint, because they imprint on every coin “in God we trust”.

The lawsuit was dismissed by the judge who saw right through this unfounded lawsuit.
