Every morning across the United States, over 60 million teachers and students recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Many of those teachers and kids may soon be pledging to a different tune. - Page 1

Last week we wrote about the court case that was filed in California about the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Tons of Kidzworld members sent us their thoughts on this controversial case. Take a look at what Kidzworld peeps have to say:

1 If you look in the constitution, it doesn't say anything about separation of church and state. Just READ IT!!!!!!!

[Editor's Note: Here is the clause in question from the American Bill of Rights; "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." If you were the judge in the Pledge of Allegiance case, what would your decision have been? ]

1 I think the Pledge should stay the way it is because the people who think the Pledge should not be in schools are wrong and also every child learns things from God and the Pledge should count as a part of everyone's life.

1 I think that there is absolutely no reason that the Pledge of Allegiance should be changed. Whether it was just changed to say "under God" in 1954 doesn't make a difference in whether it's a tradition or not. It's a tradition to me because I was not even alive in 1954 to know the other version. If Michael Newdow (or anyone else for that matter) is offended enough to take this case to the Supreme Court, then you would think that the school would excuse his daughter from saying the Pledge. In my opinion, America should not change a well-known tradition because one person disagrees. What will become of us then?

1 The Pledge of Allegiance is just a little pray to God for us to have a safe and happy life.

1 I say that people should just leave the Pledge the way it is 'cause it's been that way for a long time and it symbolizes some people's religion, so I say keep it.

    Is God In Or Out?

    • I think the words "under God" should be removed.
    • I want the Pledge to stay just the way it is.
    • I'll wait to see what the court decides.
    • I don't really know what to think.

    In my point of view, every animal has rights. However these scientists need candidates to test out their new formulas or ideas. The effects of these formulas have such serious results; either good and bad. But the animals are being deprived of their rights. So it has a yes or no answer.

    This is where you can make suggestions to improve kidzworld!!! Maybe don't even comment a suggestion, just type in something to support someone's ideas or something. We need to get this thread popular so eventually Jordan will see it!!! My first suggestion is to make it so you can go to settings and say notification alarm where everytime you get a comment, reply, or pm, it will make a sound. And you can choose from a whole bunch of noises. And they should add a page that is just youtube, and they can minimize it so you don't have to listen to the KW radio stations. You should also be able to minimize a conversation in PM so you can do other stuff while chatting.
