The extreme Freedom From Religion Foundation continues their work to deem virtually any public expression of faith unconstitutional. This week, they asked the Supreme Court to declare unconstitutional the practice of requiring public school students to recite or listen to the Pledge of Allegiance because of the inclusion of the phrase “One nation, under God.”
This is the same organization that sued Governor Brewer two weeks ago for declaring the Arizona Day of Prayer. Governor Brewer has since said she would defend her declaration of prayer.
The name of this organization “Freedom From Religion Foundation” underlines their stark misinterpretation of the Constitution. Organizations like this, and others that seek to ban or limit the free practice of faith completely ignore the protections provided within the Constitution, and our nation’s rich heritage of religious expression.
