I think the government has to stay out of religion altogether, and that means they can't make references to either the existence of a god or lack thereof.
That is the sad thinking of "now." Not then when our forefathers really knew how much freedom of religion meant.
'Under god' was added to the pledge in the 1950s. And you're right, the founders wanted people to have the freedom to worship whatever they want. But a pledge that says 'under god' is government interference with personal religion.
