Regarding is "Under God" constitutional ...
Regarding "Under God," in my opinion Congress skirted violating the
First Amendment by making this Law. Although most Christians may not
see it this way, in my opinion just to keep peace in the "family" there
are certain religious-based words that shouldn't appear in any bill that
Congress sends to the President for his signature.
However, the First Amendment freedom of speech gives people the right to
recite whatever version of the Pledge of Allegiance they want to
regardless if Congress was wrong to add "under God". So while the
courts can properly order schools not to force students to recite the
"under God" version of the pledge, the courts are wrong to silence
either version of the pledge if they are voluntarily recited.
What a mess!
Finally, regarding our secular courts, note that Job 9:24 indicates that
one of the ways God sends judgement upon a nation is by blinding its
judges to justice.
