Justice Antonin Scalia: Constitution allows religion to be favored over secularism
I think the main fight is to dissuade Americans from what the secularists are trying to persuade them to be true: that the separation of church and state means that the government cannot favor religion over non-religion
The American Taliban in action.
Scalia told the group, which included lawmakers and other public officials, that Americans honored God in the pledge of allegiance and in “all our public ceremonies.”
That was added in 1954. The pledge wasn’t even in common use until the 1920s and wasn’t official until the 1940s. And there is nothing in the Constitution about pledges and oaths for citizens, only for elected and appointed government officials.
