After losing his lawsuit in an 8-0 ruling with the U.S. Supreme Court, claiming that "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance in unconstitutional, Michael Newdow is at it again. This time, he's found an anonymous atheist couple in New Hampshire Massachusetts, "Jan and Pat Doe,", and is defending their claim that the phrase "Under God" is unconstitutional.
In his rationalization for eliminating religious references from public life, Newdow commented "There are numerous instances where kids are traumatized for life, as a result of being ostracized for their religious beliefs." His counsel recommends that we protect our children from Michael Newdow.

The Pledge of Allegiance has changed several times since it was originally penned by Baptist minister Francis Bellamy in 1892. The original pledge read "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." "Under God" was added in 1954.
