Just as an FYI for those who are up in arms about it all:

http://www.homeofheroes.com/hallofheroes/1st_floor/flag/1bfc_pledge.html
Has the different versions of the pledge since its original inception on 1892.

And, "In God we Trust" has only been around since 1957:

I have found both of these sites to be in accordance with stuff I've found in history books, although I do admit the 2nd one is a little biased towards the "Hey, they went around the constitution!" POV.

Personally, I could care less on either side, because I don't feel it's a big deal, but the whole "We are one Nation Under God", etc., is a relatively new-fangled concept.
