The Pledge

"One nation under God." It's frustrating, this continued talk about one little phrase. Actually, the story of the California atheist and his 9-year old girl who supposedly complained about this phrase is not true. Yes, the father was an atheist, but his daughter was a Christian!

Why do so many say that this is a violation of separation of church and state when it isn't? The purpose of separation of church and state is not to keep church out of government, but the government out of the church! The founders of this law simply did not want the government dictating what American churches may say. I say, let the pledge stay as is.
