Our Pledge of Allegiance ...
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I took out the CNN link that used to be here for multiple reasons, one of which being that the link was no longer valid. The link was discussing how around 2004 and of course at other times there have been attempts to take the phrase of "under God" our of the Pledge of Allegiance.
A statement of mine:
So it hasn't always been there, but 50 years is a long while. In
my opinion is should stay, partially because it is right, plus this
country was founded as a Christian Nation allowing the right for all to
practice the way they want, without imposing it on others. It is not
imposing it, just to have the words "under God" in a pledge that is
voluntary anyways, if someone does not choose to say the pledge, they
can also choose not to be loyal to this nation.
This was in reference to:
The law adding "under God" as an effort to distinguish the United
States from "godless Communism" during the height of the cold war took
effect on Flag Day - June 14 - 1954.
And the response to this one was:
"They could say that the nation isn't being loyal to them because of their freedom of speech" - Jamie
