SELL HIPPIE SOMEWHERE ELSE:

Court upholds NH law allowing pledge in school (DENISE LAVOIE, 11/15/10, AP)

A three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston on Friday affirmed a ruling by a federal judge who found that students can use the phrase "under God" when reciting the pledge.

A lawsuit was filed by parents and The Freedom From Religion Foundation against the Hanover School District and the Dresden School District, located in New Hampshire and Vermont.

The appeals court found that the primary effect of the law is "not the advancement of religion, but the advancement of patriotism."
