Relatively Obscure: Stupid to think no one would notice and care. Also stupid to care.

optikeye: ozarkmatt: A Democrat trying to find a way to "protest."No news here.No news here.....my Grandfather learned the pledge in the 20's at school. At that time "under god" wasn't in the pledge...He stumbled when trying to recitie it...and also had very Religious objections. From sound Biblical Predicable. About using "GOD" and a pledge to a graven image. (the flag) and Christ's words.The "Under God" addition removes it to a oath swaring to the flag invoking god.And just for fun here---it wasn't the Atheists or Liberals that got school prayer removed.It was hard core Christians--that took Christ's commandments very seriously about praying in public by reciting versings 'like a heathen in the street corner'.From Mathew Chapter 6:1Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.2Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. 3But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does: 4That your alms may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly.5And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward. 6But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.7But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8Be not you therefore like to them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.
JerkyMeat: And the whole "under god" bullshiat was put into the pledge way after it was written by the rightwing fascists from a different decade.It really isn't news.
Carn: ozarkmatt: A Democrat trying to find a way to "protest."No news here.Do you think God would be offended by the change? If so, why?
Ennuipoet: I've been told that god is love, so why is this a problem.Of course, I was also told love is blind, thus making Stevie Wonder god.
A Shambling Mound: Am I to assume this means she thinks the line "liberty and justice for all" is somehow less ridiculous?
vpb: Francis Scott Key Bellamy didn't even write the "under God" bit. It was added in 1954. It isn't even in the traditional real pledge.
CarnySaur: I say "under Rod", referring to Rod Stewart.//roundabout Rutles reference
Dimensio: The Pledge of Allegiance was authored by a Christian Socialist, not a "rightwing fascist".
bigmoneygrip: As every red-blooded patriotic American knows, you are a Muslim communist scum if, when saying the Pledge, you do not shout "under God" at the top of your lungs.
here to help: If you say "under God" you are sh*tting on everything the US is supposed to stand for. If you actively try to force people to say it you are a traitor.
ph0rk: Why the fark are people still pledging allegiance to a flag?
