Bushies are confused
WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration defended two words in the Pledge of Allegiance -- "under God" -- in asking the Supreme Court to declare the daily recitation constitutional. "Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is a patriotic exercise, not a religious testimonial," the administration said.
The government also questioned Newdow's right to bring the suit. The brief said that Newdow, who does not have custody of his daughter, does not have the authority to solely decide his child's religious upbringing.
