Quoting CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, "Every single day that the United States Supreme Court is in session the marshal begins by saying, 'God save this honorable court.' ... If any of those nine justices, having heard 'God save this honorable court' every single day, if something was wrong with it, someone might have said something."
I guess they're going to get rid of the Supreme Court too.
Quoting from another CNN article which has CNN's Arthel Neville interviewing the man who brought the original suit which brought about this decision (Michael Newdow):
Neville: At what point did your daughter come home to you and say she was ostracized for not saying the Pledge of Allegiance?
Newdow: My daughter is in the lawsuit because you need that for standing. I brought this case because I am an atheist and this offends me, and I have the right to bring up my daughter without God being imposed into her life by her schoolteachers. So she did not come and say she was ostracized.
Neville: Why do you think that it wasn't enough just to tell your daughter, "It's OK not to say this if you don't want to say this, if you don't believe this"?
Newdow: I believe in the Constitution. The Constitution says that government isn't supposed to be infusing religion into our society, and so I asked to have that upheld.
Quoting Toobin again, "What the court did today is said that even though [a] student could refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance, the pledge was still unconstitutional because it was said at all."
In 1943 the Supreme Court passed a ruling that stated children could not be penalized in any way if they choose not to say the pledge. What this means is that if you have a problem with the pledge, then DON'T SAY IT. How can the government be "infusing religion into our society" if you have the option of saying or not saying the pledge?
