Hooray for the third circuit court of appeals!

Brian Leiter reports that the US third circuit court has ruled against Pennsylvania's attempt to mandate state-sponsored idolatry. As someone who, as best as I can remember, has never pledged allegiance to any flag (if I'm going to pledge allegiance to anything, it'd be the constitution of the United States, and only if not ordered to), I'm pleased to see that there are still people in the judicial branch that have actually read the constitution of this country.

The Pennsylvania law was extra subversive, too, because it gave religious schools an out, and thus established a lovely little escape clause from secular law for the theocrats.

Now someone should go after the nasty little moment of (nudge nudge wink wink) silence laws.
