Pledge of Allegiance Goes on Trial in Massachusetts … Atheist Couple Looks to strike the Words “Under God”

 When is this nonsense going to stop on the part of Atheists?

An Atheist couple filed, anonymously on behalf of their three children, with the state Supreme Court Judicial Court to strike the words “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. Wow, these heroes filed it anonymously. What’s the matter, can’t stand behind your beliefs? The fact that they did this on behalf of their 3 children., really? They did this on behalf of themselves, using this children as human shields.  When is this BS going to end? What will be next, striking “endowed by Our Creator” and “God” from the Declaration of Independence?

Below is Red Skelton’s brilliant rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance. Skelton says at the 3:52 mark. “… and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance, Under God. Wouldn’t it be a pity if some one said that was a prayer and that would be eliminated from schools too?” It would appear that Red Skelton was a sage.

The state Supreme Judicial Court will begin hearing arguments this week in an atheist Acton couple’s quest to strike the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance their children say in the Acton-Boxboro Regional School District.

The couple’s suit, filed anonymously on behalf of their three children, goes to the SJC tomorrow, with a pair of Washington, D.C., activist organizations ?taking part in the proceedings.

“We feel confident that our arguments are the right ones, and we’re certainly hopeful that they’re persuasive to the justices,” said Eric Rassbach, dep­uty general counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is arguing on behalf of the school district. “We represent some kids that are actually in the Acton-Boxboro School District that would like to keep saying the pledge.”

A note to Atheists, the US Constitution provides a Freedom of Religion, not a Freedom from religion.
