Newdow given the boot.

The Supreme Court Ruled 8-0 that Mr. Newdow didn't have the right to bring a case before our legal system. Full story here.
Note that technically this ruling does not uphold the pledge as is because it was ruled that Mr. Newdow did not have standing which all of us that have been following this case honestly knew they would have to in order to be true to our legal system.
However, I have no doubt that a court that actually read the Annals of Congress and the debates on the first and other amendments would be left with no other choice than to throw this case out even if he did have standing. James Madison himself clearly stated that the purpose of the first amendment was not to prevent displays of religion or stifle religion, but rather to prohibit a national method of worship "or else". Couple that with the fact that the Constitution ONLY has authority because of the Declaration of Independence which states that by its authority and the authority of God the people have the right to establish a government as such. Arguments that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land are frivolous because without the Declaration of Independence and the precepts it sets forth, there is no Constitution or even the right to form a government under a Constitution.
On top of that, if mentioning "God" means that something establishes a religion and is hence "unconstitutional", then the Constitution would itself be "unconstitutional". Why? Read the last line which says:
"Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names"
Do not be fooled. Getting the mention of "God" declared "unconstitutional" is the biggest step the left has in getting the U.S. Constitution itself declared null and void because of this one little line that few acknowledge exists.
