I don’t understand what the big deal about the Pledge of Allegiance is. It seems obvious to me that “under God” being in the Pledge makes it unconstitutional. It’s not a very complicated issue. The Constitution states that there will be no state-sponsored religion. “…under God” is a religious term. Putting “…under God” into the Pledge equates to a state-sponsored religion, which is unconstitutional.

The amusing thing is that “…under God” was not added to the Pledge until 1954. Until then, everyone pledged allegiance to the flag without any mention of God. Why should we not go back to the way the pledge was read? Why leave the unconstitutional portion in it?
