Checks and Balances...?

Somebody else check this out (HR. 2028.RH) and make sure I am reading it correctly.

Is that a bill in the House of Representatives stating that the Pledge of Allegiance is constitutional? Does it really say that the courts do not have the power to decide whether or not something is in violation of constitutional rights?

Somebody tell me I interpreted that incorrectly. Tell me that the legislative branch of our government is not trying to work its way around the judicial branch.

Regardless of whether or not the current Pledge of Allegiance violates the rights of non-believers, a bill circumventing the power of the judicial system is a frightening thing.

I am really disturbed by this bill.
