Federal Judge Declares Pledge Of Allegiance Unconstitutional

A federal judge in San Francisco has declared it unconstitutional to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools. The judge, ruling in a lawsuit brought by Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow, today ruled that he is bound by precedent of the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals. Newdow objected to the words "under God" in the pledge.
