God Out Of Texas?

At least out of the Texas pledge

A day after thousands of schoolchildren began reciting the revised Texas pledge honoring "one state under God," an atheist couple asked a federal judge in Dallas that the language be immediately removed.

Legislators inserted the language into the pledge earlier this year to mirror the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance.

U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade denied the request late Tuesday by David Wallace Croft and his wife, Shannon, for a preliminary injunction to stop the use of the pledge before any trial. No trial date has been set. An unidentified John and Jane Doe are also parties to the case.

"The U.S. Supreme Court has made it abundantly clear for decades that patriotic tributes to God are allowed under the Constitution," state solicitor general Ted Cruz argued in court.

Yet again, we have a minority trying to deny the majority of their Rights. Two people have an issue, so they think that everyone else should fall in line. From what I heard on the news this morning, Michael Newdow, the guy who kept suing to have "under God" removed from the Pledge of Allegiance, is getting involved with this, too.

Also, on the news this morning, these folks argued that atheism is a religion, which would create a conundrum: if not allowed this moment of silence and/or prayer, wouldn’t we be pushing a different religion?

Jay at Stop The ACLU is also on the case, and writes

There is one word that I look for in all of this, and will highlight it in the next quote. If this word is included then I never understand why people have a problem with things. The word is “voluntary”.

The story, and law, does mention voluntary. Of course, in Liberal World, peer pressure is everything. We know libs cannot think for themselves, and must follow the crowd, and they keep teaching the younger generations this same concept. Which means that, rather then telling their kids to ignore the peer pressure (which is also mentioned in the story), or making up their own minds, Libs have to make sure everyone complies with their narrow world view.
