Florida Appeals Court on the Pledge of Allegiance

A Florida appeals court declared today that a state law requiring parental permission to refuse to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance at school was constitutional, but the part of the law that required even those students who refused to say the Pledge (with parental permission) to stand was unconstitutional.

See: Jurist: Federal court rules part of Florida Pledge of Allegiance law unconstitutional.

I guess minors aren't permitted their own conscience. Too bad the SCOTUS didn't step in here. The 1st amendment is bleeding.
