Skip to comments.Court upholds 'under God' in Pledge of Allegiance
Posted on 03/11/2010 1:12:58 PM PST by Ben Mugged
A federal appeals court in San Francisco has ruled that the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is constitutional.
In a 2-1 ruling, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel rejected arguments by Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow that the phrase violates the separation between church and state.
Newdow's previous lawsuit against the pledge in public schools reached the U.S. Supreme Court in 2004. But the high court said he didn't have the legal standing to make the challenge on behalf of his daughter.
So Newdow, who is a doctor and lawyer, filed a similar challenge on behalf of other parents who objected to their children being required to recite "under God."

yea for that!
Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Newdow’s an ahole. Next stop, the Supreme’s.
Would someone please call 911 for me... I think I’m in shock and shutting down.
That was rather terse from the Washington Post.
I guess they are pretty pissed.
Coming from the 9th circuit I would say that ranks up there with the Massachussetts senate seat.
Just like the gay minority, this imbecile’s futile attempt to nullify God, even saying The name is tantamount to idiocy. He’s entitled to go to court but to subject taxpayers money everytime the SCJ’s go to court is a waste of resources.
The “Free Thinkers” are having a hissy fit!! ha ha

“Under God”. Courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Knights of Columbus.
This guy set himself up as heir apparant for Madylyn Murray OHare...and hopefully he loses again when this gets up to SCOTUS...btw unless he has moved he works at a Hospital in Davis California, if he get a hold of you as a patient. I suggest you PRAY!
I don’t know why Newdow is so upest about the “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance anyway. He obviously does not Pleadge Allegiance to this country, never says the pledge,and is in serious need of a mind meld with a Knuckle Sandwich.
Maybe he will end up the same way as she did:
In a 2 to 1 decision? I wonder who the flaming A$$hole judge was that voted against leaving it in? Despicable turd!!
The 9th circuit get’s one right . No appeal here .
Gotta admit she made a name for herself. That must have been some meeting with the Lord when the time came.
Refeerring to O’Hare who had an article refeenced in the post. Sorry about that.
I also wanted to know. This judge should sleep with the fishes.
Isn't she the one that went for a drive with her son to meet "some people" and was never heard from again.
God is the most important part in the pledge of alleigance.
Will this ruling finally compel this idiot to stop filing lawsuits?
Praise The LORD!!!
Yes- son and granddaughter also per the article I read. She had two sons, both illegetimate, one followed her one did not. Evidently it was the one that did not who was the father of the granddaughter who was also killed.
Newdow, Fizz fizz
Oh what a relief it is!
