The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel rejected two legal challenges by Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow, who claimed the references to God disrespect his religious beliefs. This is the same man who sued his daughters school district for saying the Pledge Allegiance, saying it violates her religious rights. If you don't want your child to say the Pledge Allegance, then tell them to have a moment of silence instead. Why do people continue to object to "under God" the Pledge Allegiance and "In God We Trust" on money? You can't change our Pledge Allegiance or our money because you are offended. You would think it says in Satan we trust. Our countries principles are founded on religion. You can not completely seperate state and church. What about our rights? Don't they think we would be offended if you remove the word of God from anything that has to do with our government. That is one of the problems with this country. People have forgotton about God and who created us and our world. If the Athiest are offended by the word God. Then don't read what money says and if you it pains you so much to say "under God", then don't say it. Skip that part of the Pledge of Allegiance. I dont approve of how they took the Pledge of Allegiance out of a lot of schools as it is, just because it says "under God". Our society is failing our children by taking religion out of the schools. If your an athiest and don't believe in God, then simply take a moment of silence. I'm not sorry if anyone is offended by my opinion, but I'm offended by the Athiests who is trying to take the reference to God out of everything.
