Many argue that the United States was founded on christian principles but, in the recent years there have been more instances where people challenge religion being used in the government. An example would be the pledge of allegiance that is recited nationwide every morning as school begins. The pledge of allegiance has a line that says as follows “Under God” which ,many people argue is unconstitutional.
