Contitutional

Since the sum total of what the Constitution says about God/religion is as follows......

"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, not PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF."

I can't see how saying the pledge in school constitutes the government "establishing a religion" especially when the word god is generic and can mean different things to different people. Funny how atheist's get offended by a being they claim not to believe in. It would be like adults getting angry over public displays of Santa. We don't believe in him so surely the sight or mention of him should offend us the way atheists get offended at the mention of god...whomever or whatever god may be. Right?

You are right.

Also, I practice my religion because I have the RIGHT to.

Its called Freedom of speach. And freedom of press...
