Pledge of Allegiance
A group has ended its legal challenge against a New Jersey school district to the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
District Superintendent Joan Carbone told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown the Arabic reading of the pledge has “divided the school in half.”
Attorneys offered contrasting interpretations of the Pledge of Allegiance during oral arguments Wednesday in a New Jersey family’s lawsuit claiming a school district is discriminating against their child’s atheist beliefs.
The lawsuit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District was filed in state court last month and announced Monday by the American Humanist Association.
It’s not clear whether it would come before or after the Pledge of Allegiance, but if Brooklyn City Councilman Lew Fidler has his way city students would start their day with a moment of silence.
A decision during U.S. Open coverage caused quite a stir and prompted an apology from NBC, so Boomer & Craig offered their take on the situation.
