Subject: My topic for essay #1- what's ur take ?

hey guys and girls i just thought i would get ur feelings toward my essay topic (finally i picked one :) )

here is a summery i wrote on a article i found on cnn.com

Because of the 1954 insertion of the phrase “under God” by Congress The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that in public schools reciting the pledge of allegiance is an unconstitutional “endorsement of religion”. Lawmakers on both sides are upset with the ruling and president of the United States thinks the ruling is “ridiculous”. The government does say that the addition of “under God” was made to acknowledge a Supreme Being. Also the insertion of “under god was made to advance religion at a time when the government was publicly attacking atheistic communism. The court of appeals document recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions that said students cannot hold religious prayers because it violates the Constitution.

tell me what u think
thanks for letting me share
