Why are believers so worked up? The pledge did no...

Why are believers so worked up? The pledge did not always have "God" in it. It was added later by the 1st religious right movement and it should be deleted. It's fine to pledge to your country but to force the word God on everyone is ridiculous. Our founding fathers would not have done it! And, one should not blindly pledge & children are still blind. They're being brainwashed.



ok, wow! I wish I had friends like that in school....

ok, wow! I wish I had friends like that in school. I was one of the few that not only refused to recite it, but also stand. I told my story here before about nearly getting kicked out of school for not standing up for the pledge in Florida. It is admirable that they not only did it in solidarity, but also peacefully and smartly. They also suggested an alternative which is a wonderful example of critical thinking, that I am sure was NOT taught by their school.

To mythman, your logic is utterly fascinating... in the sense that it is insane. There is no god, and this country was not founding on the idea of one. Get over your holier than though attitude and wake up to smell the sweet scent of truth. We are a nation of people and as such are subject to the force of nature and not of a imaginary and contradicting entity (no matter the religion).

"Take the 50 Denver children"

It says it in the article, but you mean Boulder. I highly doubt something like this would ever happen in Denver.

"'God' ... is a word." (The Sphere from Michael C.'s SPHERE, as rehd by Ed Asner)

The Pledge's "One Nation under God" is simply saying that 'we for whom the flag stands' are united, and that unity--though greater-than (or 'over') every living individual--is yet 'under' whatever entity each individual holds responsible for the forces of nature, luck and general awesomeness.

But if those students are with some force greater than God, then let them fly Mother Nature's silver seed to their new home in the sun and let us Americans stay in the Kingdom!
