A judge heard arguments last Wednesday from a New Jersey family who claims that the practice of saying the Pledge of Allegiance every day, particularly the phrase “Under God,” is discriminatory.
David Niose, attorney for the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center, made this statement:
“Public schools should not engage in an exercise that tells students that patriotism is tied to a belief in God. Such a daily exercise portrays atheist and humanist children as second-class citizens, and certainly contributes to anti-atheist prejudices.”
The school district says that there is no discrimination because students are not forced to say the pledge.
You can’t make this stuff up. Have angry atheists tried to push a progressive agenda in your community yet?
