Does this anger any of you as much as me?

Statement of Senator Dianne Feinstein on the
9th Circuit Court Ruling on the Pledge of Allegiance

"I find the 9th Circuit Court's opinion embarrassing at best, and I hope
that this decision is promptly overturned by the United States Supreme Court.

This nation from its foundation has had a belief in God, and has a long
tradition of expressing that belief.

The Congress on April 22, 1864 first placed 'In God We Trust' on a coin, and
it has been on various coins of United States issue for a century and a half.
The words "Under God" were added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954, and I have
never heard a single comment from anyone in a half century objecting to that.

I see no reason to reverse what has been over a century of American
tradition, and I am proud to be a cosponsor of S. Res. 292, 'The Pledge of the
Allegiance Resolution.'"
