Default New Jersey school sued over 'under God' in pledge

Well it looks like the Christianphobes are at it again.

New Jersey school sued over 'under God' in pledge

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) A family is suing a New Jersey school district, contending that the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance discriminates against atheist children.
The lawsuit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District was filed in state court last month and was announced Monday by the American Humanist Association. The group says the phrase, added in 1954, "marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots."
The anonymous plaintiffs say those two words "under God" violate the state constitution.
But school district lawyer David Rubin says the district is merely following a state law that requires schools to have a daily recitation of the pledge. He says individual students don't have to participate.
The humanist group is awaiting a ruling from a court on a similar case in Massachusetts

In this case, they may end up stopping the pledge of allegiance, which may be their goal anyway

Our town's City Council decided to put the national motto "In God We Trust" on display in the Council Chamber a couple of weeks ago. Well wouldn't you know it that a Christaphobe showed up to complain. He then showed up again at last nights meeting to complain that the Council unanimously agreed to displaying it. These are the same Christaphobes that bow down to the Muslims and admire gay love. I sure am glad I am as "tolerant" of them as they are of others!!!!
