Still not sure what to make of this ruling. It is bound to go back before the supreme court at some point. It is not actually the entire pledge, but the phrase “under god” that is the center of the contreversy. If I recally correctly, that phrase was not even in the Pledge of Allegiance until the anti-communist days of the 1950’s. I can see both sides of the argument, and really don’t give a shit either way, but there is always going to be someone who can find ANYTHING that offends them.
