The Supreme Court wrangled Wednesday over whether a California father had the right to challenge the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance on behalf of his daughter. The Ninth Circuit Court heard arguments on this case before it went before the Supreme Court. The Pledge of Allegiance that Kass is holding was the original one before it was changed.

The Americans inserted “under God” during the anti-communism sentiments in the mid 1900s. It is rather funny. The communist countries, are atheists for the most part. So, Americans, put God to help them fight the commies. I am American, I believe in liberty, and I want no Christian of the Protestant sect to meddle my affairs.
