I agree.

If somehow someone had managed to get "Allah" or "Vishnu" or "Flying Spaghetti Monster" into the Pledge (and on the currency), it would be struck down faster than you could draw your next breath. But because it is "God" (Christian), it's fine.

If they had instead said "The Creator" then it might be a different argument. "The Creator" is invoked by the Founders, and is not specific to any belief system. But "God" is so outrageous I'm deeply saddened that it continues to stand judicial scrutiny.

I suppose I should take some solace that at least the Ninth Circuit is able to adjudicate fairly. It's a start.
