Newdow, PhD, plaintiff/appellate- Rev. Dr. Michael A. Newdow, a practicing Atheist, contends that it is unconstitutional for the Pledge of Allegiance to contain the phrase 'under God,' and it is a violation of an individual's First Amendment right to freedom of religion without government interference. The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights to the Constitution states 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion . . . Slide12:  Slide13:  Slide14:  Slide15:  Slide16:  Karande, K., dissenting Supreme Court of the United States Michael Newdow v. George Bush, United States Congress et al. Decided Nov. 18, 2003 Chief Justice Karande, dissenting from denial of certiorari. (1) This case raises the issue of whether the government can implement and infringe upon the beliefs of another religious system; the system mainly focused upon in this case, is atheism. Slide17:  The case arises in the following circumstances: Michael A. Newdow is an atheist whose daughter attends public elementary school in the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGSUD) in California. In accordance with state law, the school district presents the following rule, '[EGUSD] teachers begin each school day by leading their students in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.' The California Education Code strictly requires that all public schools in the state begin each school day with 'appropriate patriotic exercises' and 'the giving of the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.' Summary:  Summary Students were involved in a 'real-world' learning activity. Teachers could give ongoing evaluation and feedback. The Nexus provided the dynamic element to make the Supreme Court Hearings work.
