Keep God in the Pledge of Allegiance

Target: California Supreme Court

Petition Background (Preamble):

When the story came on the news, I was appalled: 1 person might keep God out of the pledge of allegiance because he doesn't happen to believe in Him? In fact, Constitutionally, they shouldn't be allowed to abolish it. According to the first Amendment, "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..." Of course, that didn't stop them from taking prayer out of schools.

Many people today believe in God and if they can't say that this country is under God when they truly believe it, they have taken away their rightof expressing religion. Our nation was founded by people who wanted to worship freely, without the government hanging over their heads. Let everyone know that there is no such thing as separation of church and state and stop this before we can no longer worship God at all!

Petition:

According to the first Amendment, "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech..." By signing this petition, you will be saying that separation of church and state does NOT mean taking religion out of the state! It means keeping it there.
