Pledge of Allegiance in schools ruled unconstitutional

[UPDATE: Ask and you shall receive — Freeper comments below…]

Yes, I’m sure there is wailing coming from the swamps of Freeperland even as we speak. (CNN):

Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was ruled unconstitutional Wednesday by a federal judge who granted legal standing to two families represented by an atheist who lost his previous battle before the U.S. Supreme Court.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge’s reference to one nation “under God” violates school children’s right to be “free from a coercive requirement to affirm God.”

Hear the wailing and read the threats…

Actual Freeper Quotesâ„?

“And now, we ALL start paying attention to the confirmation hearings!”

“It has always been respected for people like Jehovah’s Witnesses that refused to PLEDGE Allegiance, we allowed silence during this important event. So WHY the big deal, if the parents don’t want their kids to pledge allegiance…just cough…when others say UNDER GOD. Why make a big fuss?”

“I think Congress should impeach at least one judge every year. Let’s get some turnover.”

“One???? Shizzle, let’s turn over HALF of them every year.”

“Waiting for one to rule that The Constitution is unconstitutional.”

“Yeah Kalifornia…ye reaps what ye sows!”

“The judge was a Carter appointee – what a shock, huh? He’s been out of office for 25 years, and the damage that Jimmy C. did to the US just keeps going on and on….”

“Again? geez, doesn’t this guy have anything to do in his life? The judge should have told him to tell the people either don’t say “under GOD” of don’t say the pledge at all. If judges like this guy think they can tell us NOT to say the pledge, they will have to have us all arrested! another judge with delusions of grandeur…”

“Perhaps the parents of the rest of the children who are now having their freedom of expression oppressed should start filing suit.”

“Send him to China to complete his term.”

“The decision was not overturned by SCOTUS it was thrown back into the system. They basically said that the atheist father was not able to bring the case on behalf of his daughter and to go get more plaintiffs. Basically, SCOTUS side-stepped the issue. The fact-of-the-matter remains that when a public school REQUIRES the recital of the Pledge of Allegience it IS unconstitional due to the fact that the school is a part of the government and paid for by the people.”

“Because its considered INTOLERANT for the rest of us to not do what the minority insist on.”

“You don’t have to recite it. You can recite it even if it’s not required. But when it’s required it becomes a constitutional problem. Same with prayer in school. Would you want your kid going to a public school that mandated a daily prayer to Allah? No, and it would be unconstitutional for them to do so.”

“So…you are proposing murdering them?”

“Nope…we are not in a state of war, and despite the lateness of the hour and the breadth and depth of the assault, we still have legal, civil recourse. Until that is totally exhausted, as it was with our founders, then we are obligated to civilly, tierlessly…even loudly if necessary…and perhaps with civil disobedience (as we will do here in Idaho) fight this and get it turned over. If they come with guns drawn to stop citizens doing so at a football game or at school, things may get interesting. But that will not happen here in Idaho on this issue IMHO.”

“Judges running amuck in the blue states.”


“Total insanity from the s@@thole of liberalism. This leftist judge did not have to be bound by precedent. While precedent does play a part, she could have fought it, but chose not to, because of HER OWN POLITICAL STANDING….Liberalism is a disease of the mind — and it permeates our judical system, which continually urinates all over our Constitution…”

“So what’s that next to the lady’s right foot? Could that be the 10 Commandments — on the homepage of the ultra left, no religion in public life, 9th. Circuit?”

but you can write or call this traitor scumbag judge karlton at:
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton
501 I Street, Suite. 4-200
Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: (916) 930-4000
and let it know what a traitor he is to our country. Declaring the pledge of allegiance unconstitutional. I thought I heard it all…

“We need to preemptively invade SF”

“We need to preemptively NUKE SF……………”

“Time for a new pledge..I pledge allegiance to myself and screw everyone else in America. And to the Republic, whatever that is. One nation, no god. Multi-cultural, with political correctness for all.”

Thanks to Blender Carolyn for the pointer.
