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.

who needs judeo Christian religions or Ally Oop knee rug burns? - we are already working in overdrive towards our own destruction - we call it Christie World and it's a monster that can never get enough to ever be satisfied - a couple of thousand years ago we had the son of God who tried to show us the path of life - that didn't work out as hoped, so now we have the son of Satan - and it's official - Christie was personally crowned in the Seasides
