US Supreme Court to hear case on ‘under God’ in flag pledge
Be consistent - either way is fine, but either scrap separation of church and state or keep that separation and take the words out. They weren't put in until 1954 anyway and the pledge itself is suspect - an 1800s composition, I think 1930s fascism 'inspired' the government to push it, complete with toned-down arm salute for civilians.

Reminds me of when Bush the Elder was president and people tried to use the nonissue of flag-burning ('Aaagh! We need an amendment banning it!') to scare up support for alleged conservatism.
