The Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District is being sued by The American Humanist Association on behalf of a local family that objects to their child participating in the Pledge of Allegiance recitation with the words “under God.”
What do you think? Please let us know in the poll and/or share your thoughts about whether American schoolchildren should recite the words "Under God" included in the Pledge of Allegiance.
The family is from Aberdeen and wishes to remain anonymous, according to an announcement of the lawsuit on americanhumanist.org.
The suit claims that daily school-sponsored recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance—declaring to students that the nation is “under God”—words added in 1954 — is discriminatory toward atheist children and their families.
