Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was ruled unconstitutional Wednesday by a federal judge who granted legal standing to two families represented by an atheist who lost his previous battle before the U.S. Supreme Court.
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge’s reference to one nation “under God” violates school children’s right to be “free from a coercive requirement to affirm God.”
Karlton said he was bound by precedent of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which in 2002 ruled in favor of Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow that the pledge is unconstitutional when recited in public schools.
The Pledge of Allegiance doesn’t bother me. What bothers me are minuscule groups of stupid people so fucking uptight they have to waste thousands of dollars and hours in U.S. Courts when all they have to do is tell their kids – who probably have no idea what’s going on in the first place – simply not to recite two simple words.
And what’s with this “coercive requirement to affirm God” bullshit. There is no law saying that children have to recite that part of the pledge. That’s not good enough for some busy-body jerkoffs however, and they have to tie up the courts with bullshit like this. Not only that, but then they go and ruin it for the multitudes of other people who have no problem with the pledge; not to mention the good portion of those people who appreciate the Pledge of Allegiance and want their kids to recite it.
In fact, I love the Pledge of Allegiance. That’s fucking right I do. It’s patriotic and it reminds us of all the freedoms we’re given as citizens of this fine country. I try not to get too political here, but I’m very involved in politics in my daily life and sometimes bullshit like this just gets to me.
In summation: It’s two words you obsessive, nosy, obtrusive, self-important, cockwads. Instead of making a federal case out of it, just tell your kids not to say those two words. And for shit’s sake, get a hobby instead of flipping out over every little thing. I suggest you take up something like finding new and effective ways to keep your pinheads out of your dumbasses.
