I think you've pretty well nailed it, Pretender. The term "God" is a pretty broad and non-specific term and pretty generic so far as religion is concerned. A reference to God is not an establishment of religion, more certainly because nobody is required to cite the Pledge nor say God if they choose not to. I support laws that do not require a child to say the pledge if they have moral objection to it (such as Jehovah Witnesses), but it is just as wrong for a few anti-religionists to try to tell me I can't say it if I want to, either.
