Hairline Scratches on Filter?

I wasn't careful with my circular polarizing filter when I took it off my lens and dropped it in my camera bag.  Now I have several hairline scratches on the backside of the filter which are noticeable when I look at the filter from the side in bright light.  Will these scratches affect the image quality -- especially in strong sidelight? Should I replace the filter?
