Appeals Court Upholds Pledge Law
The AP reports that: "An appeals court on Wednesday upheld a Virginia law that requires public schools to lead a daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, rejecting a claim that its reference to God was an unconstitutional promotion of religion."Of course, students retain their constitutional right to opt out of saying the Pledge.
