Pledge: Decision is a slap in the face

The Pledge of Allegiance was declared unconstitutional because it had the word “God” in it. Those who decided this should also declare our money unconstitutional since the phrase “In God We Trust” is printed on it.

These people seem to forget that our country was founded for the purpose of religious freedom. To worship, or not to worship as we please.

To say that the Pledge is unconstitutional is a slap in the faces of our founding fathers and to all of the men and women throughout the history of our nation that fought and gave their lives for our country.
