“The House voted Wednesday to bar federal courts from ruling on the constitutional validity of the Pledge of Allegiance.
The legislation passed 260-167. It now goes to the Senate where its future is uncertain.
… “We are making an all-out assault on the Constitution . . . which, thank God, will fail,” said Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)”
Update #1: I haven’t been able to find this online, but here’s more from Nancy Pelosi’s floor speech today:
“It is absolutely wrong, and Justice O’Connor said recently on this subject that this was brought up at the time of desegregation. They tried to use it then. Thank God, thank God, thank you, God, they failed. Thank God they failed.
In other words, “Thank God, thank God, thank you, God, they failed. Thank God they failed,” to keep the Supreme Court from being able to tell people they can’t say, “God.”
