It is NO MISTAKE and NO COINCIDENCE that this decision comes out at the same time of the hearings for the new Chief Justice. This is how the "democratic" institutions get away with things - they plot and scheme to get public opinion behind their agenda. It is one grand chess game. Pushing peoples sensitivity buttons within the matrix of pre-determined issues and associated discourse.

Judge declares Pledge unconstitutional

Wednesday, September 14, 2005; Posted: 2:21 p.m. EDT (18:21 GMT)

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was ruled unconstitutional Wednesday by a federal judge who granted legal standing to two families represented by an atheist who lost his previous battle before the U.S. Supreme Court.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge's reference to one nation "under God" violates school children's right to be "free from a coercive requirement to affirm God."

Karlton said he was bound by precedent of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which in 2002 ruled in favor of Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow that the pledge is unconstitutional when recited in public schools.
