A California court has struck at America's Pledge of Allegiance, particularly the phrase "under God," which was added to the pledge in 1954.

The case, based on the use of religion in a public forum, was brought by an atheist.

It will go to the U. S. Supreme Court for a final decision, where the California court action is expected to be overturned.

Many years ago there was a compelling rendering of The Pledge by comedian Red Skelton, after which he questioned it might be possible "under God" would be removed, someday.
