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.
