Judge rules against reciting Pledge of Allegiance

Michael Newdow has won round one in his bid to remove ‘under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance. This time he represents families who have legal standing, which was the sticking point in his previous attempt, which was dismissed by the US Supremes.

From the page:

“Imagine every morning if the teachers had the children stand up, place their hands over their hearts, and say, ‘We are one nation that denies God exists,'” Newdow said. “I think that everybody would not be sitting here saying, ‘Oh, what harm is that.’ They’d be furious. And that’s exactly what goes on against atheists. And it shouldn’t.”
