"Under God" Staying In Texas Pledge

A federal judge ruled against a Texas couple today who were trying to prevent the addition of "under god" to the state pledge.

The couple, who are atheists, argued that their children should not have to recite the pledge at their school in north Texas.

After the decision, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said, "With today's ruling, a federal judge denied the plaintiffs' attempt to prevent Texas schoolchildren from pledging their allegiance to 'one state under God' - just as they pledge to 'one nation under God."
