Supreme Court sets back Father's Rights

In the process of ducking the issue on "under God" in the pledge the Supreme Court dealt a severe blow to father's rights. Technically I really mean the non-custodial parents rights - but in America the family courts are severely slanted in favor of women. Basically - what the court ruled was that when the State teaches your kids that "Mommy's religion is right and daddy's religion is wrong" then daddy has no standing in court to sue.

I'd bet if the issue weren't the pledge but it was a school that was leading Christian Children to praise Allah - that the father would have had standing to sue.

For those who think this was a victory for "under god" - it wasn't. The court ducked that issue because they are cowards. Someone else with a better of facts and no custodial issues will bring it again.
