Breaking News Out Of California!!!!!!

A federal judge in California has just declared it unconstitutional to recite the pledge of allegiance in public schools because it violates the seperation of church & state!!!! After 2 other sets of parents climbed on board the case/lawsuit the judge has ruled.
This case will probably go all the way to the Supreme Court for the final decision. Hopefully John Roberts will not be there if and when this comes before the court. Although Roberts has avoided answering all the questions from the Judiciary Committee that would allow us to know how he feels on issues such as this, it's obvious to most that he is a religious republican, therefore he may vote to appeal this ruling if presented before him in Supreme Court.
I happen to be very pleased with this ruling. I have never felt comfortable with anything remotely religious meshing with goverment affairs. To me, it's very un-american to force or throw in the face, religious things such as saying "One nation under God" during the pledge of allegiance. Mostly because this is America, so many different religions, views, etc are felt/practiced is not fair to just assume everyone believes in God, or the goverments idea of God. It's about time.
