GOOD NEWS 'This Is About Protecting Our Freedom': Student Fights to Keep Pledge Intact
The Pledge of Allegiance is once again under attack.
An atheist group in New Jersey called the American Humanist Association is suing to get the words "under God" removed from the pledge in the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District.
One high school senior, however, is defending her right to recite the pledge in its full form, and she's standing up in court.
Samantha Jones and her attorney from The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, Emily Hardman, appeared on "Huckabee" last night to discuss the case and the ongoing fight to keep the pledge intact.
"This is about protecting our freedom as Americans," Jones said. "I'm honored to be doing this."
She explained that to her "one nation under God" sums up the values that makes our country great.
Hardman said that they have won court battles against atheist groups over and over again, with the ruling that "under God" is not a religious theology, but a political philosophy that our rights do not come from the government, but from a higher power.
She explained that they will go to court next week and are confident that they will once again prevail.
