Yet Again, AG Abbott Defends the Constitutionality of the Texas Pledge
Which is why Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott filed a brief with the court today yet again defending the Texas Pledge. You can read the whole 32-page brief if you like. But Abbott also released a statement, in which he said:
Just as it is perfectly constitutional for Texas schoolchildren to pledge their allegiance to "one nation, under God," it is also constitutional for students to pledge their allegiance to "one state, under God." Despite multiple U.S. Supreme Court decisions finding that patriotic acknowledgments of the Almighty are constitutional -- and a federal district court ruling rejecting their lawsuit -- the plaintiffs are continuing their attack on the Texas Pledge. The Office of the Attorney General remains committed to protecting young Texans' right to express their patriotism and recite the Texas Pledge of Allegiance each morning.
