My feelings about the pledge and "under God" are lukewarm. Obviously I don't think anyone should be forced to pledge the flag, I don't really see a big deal about leaving the Under God in or taking the Under God out, and just let anyone who wishes to add it in, or take it out etc. I do get rankled when I hear or read of some student being forced to pledge the flag (illegal, supreme court ruled on that), but not so much of the "under God" part, just the general principle that no one should be forced to make a promise or pledge if they really don't mean it.
But I think if this guy did libel Newdow, he isn't to bright. After all , everything said in a court room under oath is a matter of record. Anyone who lies about what someone says in court can EASILY be proven a liar.
But I've always kind of wondered about Newdow's claims of telephone death threats. It seems in this day & age, with caller i.d., telephone conversation recorders, etc. that it would be very easy to press charges against someone for making threatening phone calls. I've alway wondered if he really got such phone calls, and if so, why he didn't press charges.
