The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the reference to God in the Pledge of Allegiance is  grounded in historical identity, philosophy, and politics and not specific theology or the establishment of an official religion.

Thus the court ruled against Michael Newdow, an atheist who challenged ‘under God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance and ‘in God we trust’ on US currency as unconstitutional endorsements of religion.

The court also ruled unanimously that Newdow did not have standing to challenge the official motto of the United States that appears on the US currency- “In God We Trust”.

Response: Wow, for once the left leaning 9th Circuit actually made the right decision. Since other circuits around the country have made similar decisions concerning ‘The Pledge’ it is doubtful that this case will be going on to the Supreme Court.            *Top
