Pledge of Allegiance ruled unconstitutional II

The Boston Herald adds just a little more information which seems to point the blame for this travesty at the infamous and oft over-ruled 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals.
A federal judge in San Francisco has declared it unconstitutional to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools.

The judge, ruling in a lawsuit brought by Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow, today ruled that he is bound by precedent of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Newdow objected to the words "under God" in the pledge.
So, the Pledge of Allegiance was not ruled unconstitutional, only its recitation in schools. But, of course, soon to follow will be its recitation in public meetings, any government building, any government event, the Armed Forces, etc. etc..
