Should NJ Take ‘Under God’ Out of the Pledge? [POLL]

An unnamed family is suing the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District to have the words “Under God” removed from the Pledge of Allegiance.

According to David Matthau’s report, the American HUmanist Association is bringing a lawsuit against the district on behalf of the family. The association believes that this is not a request to remove religion as much as it is an opportunity to promote patriotism.

If the “unnamed family” is atheist and believes that there is no existence of God, so be it. No one wants or will change their minds on that. But why do they have to change everyone else’s view who have no problem with the current verbiage?

Others that have been opposed to the phrase “Under God” have referenced that the phrase was only added in 1954 during the McCarthy era. Prior to that, “under God” did not exist in the Pledge of Allegiance. It has gone on for the better part of 60+ years now and no one without change, so why amend it now?

What do you think? Do you agree with the lawsuit or are you against it changing the verbiage.
