Pledge of Allegiance in Schools Ruled Constitutional on Appeal

Bloomberg:  “Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance with its reference to God in public schools doesn’t violate the U.S. Constitution’s separation of church and state, a federal appeals court ruled. The U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco disagreed with Michael Newdow, an atheist who sued a school district near Sacramento, California, challenging the use of the phrase “under God” in the pledge.”
