This is particularly relevant this election year.

October 18, 2006 – Boston College – Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life

Every day millions of schoolchildren pledge allegiance to the American flag and "the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Michael Newdow is a lawyer, physician, and First Amendment activist whose legal challenge to the inclusion of "under God" in the pledge reached the Supreme Court in 2004, where Newdow personally argued his appeal to the justices (it was later dismissed on a technicality).

In this panel discussion, Newdow presents his case against "under God." Joining him in discussion are Wendy Kaminer, a lawyer and social critic whose most recent book is Free for All: Defending Liberty in America Today (Beacon, 2002); and Phillip Munoz, an assistant professor of political philosophy and American Constitutional law at Tufts University, who is currently completing a book on religious freedom and the American founders.

The discussion is moderated by Alan Wolfe, professor of political science and director of Boston College's Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life.

Panel Discussion – 55 minutes

    i definitely think that "one nation under God" should be striked, because not everyone in our nation believes in God, so how does that represent them. Just because thier aethiests doesn't mean that they are not citizens.
