'Under God'

The Cincinnati Enquirer

We hope the U.S. Supreme Court uses the Pledge of Allegiance case to restore some balance to the culture war over public acknowledgments of God. ... The Supreme Court should reverse a California ruling as a wrong-headed overreaction to claims that any reference to God in public life violates the First Amendment. ...The "under God" pledge is philosophical, not religious. It testifies that our liberties are God-given, not from the state, and therefore cannot be taken away by the state. The phrase doesn't put anyone's freedom of religion or freedom from religion at risk.
