Appeal court decision on Pledge


The president and our other leaders should please support an appeal from the ill-considered decision of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in ruling that "in God we trust" renders our Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional.

This makes it all the more important to hang tough with the Senate Democrats, especially those on the Judiciary Committee, to select well-qualified men and women to appellate judgeships who have high moral and legal qualifications and strong support for the traditional moral values on which our great country was founded.

Thank you.

Byron Crippin,
