The Freedom From Religion Foundation has lost an appeal against a 2002 New Hampshire law. In yesterday's ruling, the appeal court  confirmed a ruling by a federal judge that it's not unconstitutional for school students to be required to recite the "under God" clause of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Clearly the concept of god cannot be separated from the concept of religion and has nothing to do with patriotism. Students may not anonymously refuse to participate and, therefore, are subject to duress to participate. The ruling is just another disgusting example of theists holding the Constitution of the United States in contempt.
