    BUSH REAFFIRMS REFERENCES TO GOD IN PLEDGE AND NATIONAL MOTTO
    (White House-AP) -- President Bush has signed into law a
    bill reaffirming references to God in the Pledge of Allegiance
    and national motto.
    Without comment, Bush signed the legislation supporting the
    words "under God" in the pledge, and "In God we trust" as the
    national motto.
    The measure was approved unanimously in the Senate and drew
    just five no votes from House Democrats. Congress rushed to act
    after a federal appeals court panel in California ruled that the
    phrase "under God" -- inserted into the pledge by Congress in
    1954 -- violated separation of church and state.
    Enforcement of the ruling has been postponed pending a
    rehearing by the full court.

    Credit where it's due. A tiny victory with little cost, but a victory nonetheless.
