Allegiance Pledge USA The Godquot quotUnder
(Rasputin @ 11-Sep 14, 12:13 AM)
All religions have a god of some sort, so acknowledging a god in a pledge doesn't discriminate against anyone's religion.
There are many religions that do not have "God" as such, that are not mono-theistic in nature. There are religions that have many "Gods" and there are forms of spirituality that do not have any "God".
Placing phrases such as "In God We Trust" on our currency, on federal property, or in our Pledge does strongly go against the intentions of our Founding Fathers and also does violate the principal of Separation of Church and State. It does essentially establish a limited selection of state approved religions.

God gave us our freedom and America now they want to take it all away from God. We all know what eventually happens to a godless nation.
Hitler's elite troops wore belt buckles with the phrase "Got Mit Uns" (God With Us) on them. Isis and other Muslim organizations wish to form nations "Under God" which follow the laws of religion rather than a democratically formed constitutional republic with a government Of, By, and For The People.
I suggest you read the letters of James Madison regarding the extreme importance of [complete and total] Separation of Church and State. The people who "Gave us our freedom" fought to be free from an oppressive government which *did* have a form of accepted State Christianity - I don't think many sensible Americans regret that our country broke free from under the rule of England?
Even if you don't like "God… " In the allegiance how does it 'damage' you for saying it? So much more to life than nitpicking.
If it's "Just nitpicking", then PLEASE, take it BACK out because it wasn't in the pledge originally. Since it's not such a big deal to you, and it is deeply offensive to me, can't we please restore our pledge back to how it was before? Please? Edited: Chris on 5th Mar, 2016 - 4:04am

"Under God" In The USA Pledge Of Allegiance? States United
Pledge does strongly go against the intentions of our Founding Fathers…
Weren't the founding fathers Masons and used many of their rituals and performances in their official ceremonies? Did they really intend that "God" should not be uttered? I doubt that - I think they just didn't want anyone forced into any particular religion.

Page 2 "Under God" The USA Pledge Allegiance
Well, if I was in that court room I would have insisted that they say the ORIGINAL pledge:
"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Not the adulterated garbage some people try to call the pledge today:
"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"
