Full story: Santa Cruz Sentinel

A Mississippi judge jailed a lawyer for several hours for refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, ordering the attorney to "purge himself" of contempt by standing and repeating the oath like the rest of the courtroom.

Constitutionally, yes I agree completely, but I encourage you to tell that to the police officer at the roadblock, or the senator who tells him to take your guns, and the taxes that take your paycheck.
The money you spend is your vote. 90% of crime goes unpunished. It is only belief in the system that they hold you in fear.

I do not let emotions rule my life. God is a religious invention. If you believe in a superior being you have been used by fearing someone more powerful than yourself. You have the power to change government and it starts with talking to your neighbor. It does not happen by pledging to leaders.
It would seem some atheists are as obnoxious in their unbelief as some fundamentalist Christians are in their belief.

You just might understand humans as they are not all the same. As far as atheists go you just need to prove a God and the agnostics will listen. Atheists need to prove no God and the agnostics will listen.

The Pledge of Allegiance was revised in 1954 to add the "God", please know your history, dumbass.

Since "when" does any Judge have the right to make you recite ANY thing?? This idiot judge should be put in jail himself!! I'll bet he looses his position before long, that kind of thinking is VERY UN-American!

Every one that is in a leadership position is not a good leader. We Pray for those that abuse their position. This situation seems as though it is a personal thing to the judge

Praying does not solve problems it ignores reality. It is a belief of the Judge not reality. He prays too much.

Good attorney! I do not recite the pledge either, nor do I salute the flag. Why bother, given that the country is overrun by illegal immigrants, that public employee unions bribe our politicians, that activist judges overturn the vote of the people, and that racial and gender quotas are used instead of merit?
The only thing this country MIGHT do for me is pay back what I put into Social Security. Then again, maybe it won't.
If you're not drunk or on crack, you must be a stooopid kuneegroid or gin-u-wine sauce sage alldaysucker..... With my last breath,, I shall: pledge my allegiance to and salute the flag and honor the judge with kudos and salutations for doing what is right... Courtrooms belongs to judges and decorum is at their option... period.. Every 1st year law student knows that protests and objections belong in the appeals process,,, and not before a sitting judge in his courtroom, who has issued a direct order... Just because we currently suffer an anti-american in the white house, who has been photographed kissing the ring of a foreign monarch,,, does not release us of our obligation to respect the office of the POTUS... As a nation of laws, our founders clearly laid out the process for airing objections to acts of the president,,,, and other elected representatives,,,, and while I cannot quote the specific statute,, I have no doubt that there exists a statute that the your so called "good attorney" should have followed in any objection to the judge's order.... Try spending more time at the library and less on the pipe......"Why bother??? Stu-Pedo Question.......... N D No

I bet you believe in God also. We need people like you to lose their lives so we can have cheap oil. You probably also work for wages like a slave as the owner makes all the profit.
Bless your government 'indoctrination' err education. Smile at the drones.
