The 2-1 decision made by the 9th
Circuit Court of Appeals Wednesday
that the inclusion of the phrase "Under
God" is unconstitutional sparked huge
debate across the country. Issues were
raised about the separation of church
and state, the definition of God and

that it will not take effect in the states
overseen by the 9th Circuit, which
includes California, Washington, Ore-

agreed with the decision, based on the
principles of the Constitution's Estab-
lishment Clause, which prohibits the
endorsement of any one religion.
