The Pledge “Under God” Stands

Sponsored by:

The House voted today to condemn a San Francisco federal appeals court´s rulings that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools is unconstitutional because of its reference to God. The non-binding resolution was passed 400-to-seven with 15 members voting present. The resolution states the phrase “one nation under God” in the pledge reflects the religious faith central to the founding of the nation and that its recitation is a patriotic act.
