CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of Congress with respect to the Pledge of Allegiance.

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that Congress opposes the ruling of a Federal appeals court that the Pledge of Allegiance is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion and cannot be recited in schools, because the Pledge is a deeply embedded symbol of our Nation and the freedoms we hold so dear.
