Under God

Best of the Web today comes from the issue of the Weekly Standard out this morning. It is James Pierson’s terrific account of the provenance of the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance: “Under God.”
The occasion of Pierson’s article is of course the Supreme Court’s pending review of the Newdow case raising the issue of the constitutionality of the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools. We wrote about the Newdow case itself most recently in “Our unconstitutional Constitution.”
