DR. MICHAEL Newdow, find a young woman by the name of MaryKait Durkee. Maybe she can give you some much needed lessons on what to do about the Pledge of Allegiance. Durkee was only 15 when, in 1998, she caused a storm of controversy by refusing to stand and say the pledge at a school some 50 miles from San Diego. Durkee said she didn't believe in God, felt the U.S. government was corrupt and her country too violent. That sounds like the very description of a nation that has lost touch with God, but never mind.
