The Pledge of Allegiance Unconstitutional?

An interesting ironic twist:

The Pledge was originally written without the words, "under God" by Francis Bellamy in 1892. He was a Christian Socialist preaching in the Baptist churches of his day. He was kicked out the Baptist Church for his socialist sermans, and later was a member of the National Education Association during its formative years. The words, "under God", were added in 1954 when Congress adopted the Pledge. These words were added at the instigation of the Knights of Columbus, a quasi-Masonic fraternal organization. According to many on the Christian Right, the Masons are run at the top by a cabal of international conspirators, the Illuminati.
