Supreme Court to Decide Pledge of Allegiance Case


— October 14, 2003

The U.S. Supreme Court said on Tuesday it would decide whether the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, which millions of American schoolchildren recite every day, amounted to an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion.

The justices agreed to review a controversial ruling by a U.S. appeals court in San Francisco that the pledge must be banned in public schools because the phrase one nation “under God” violated church-state separation.
