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.

Here where I am? I'm satisfied. I don't believe that women's rights have been neglected. In some ways, they're held above those of men. But out there? Beyond the borders of my "humble" dwelling, there are some problems. Women are abused and seen as lesser. (I'm trying to put this in nicer terms. I don't think it's working... :/)  I think we need to work on fixing those, instead of complaining about how we're deprived as our rights. Because honestly? We have no idea how bad it is.  Sorry,  I went on a mini tangent.  I think your tangent was very good. You seem to have a pretty solid grasp of the situation, and you also are capable of expressing it well. Great post, great job.

    Why do you think that drama shouldn't stop? Don't you come in the chat room clueless about what's going on, the only fact you know currently is that drama is going on? Hmm....odd opinion, I think it should stop because most of the drama that happens on here is just petty and pathetic.

For example a 10 year old should respect a 11 year old but that 10 year old has to respect a grandpa because the grandpa is smarter and wiser than the 10 year old. I don't believe respect should be based off of level of intelligence or wisdom.  Also, age doesn't play a factor in how "smart" a person is. It does affect how much experience someone may have in the world though, thus more knowledge gained... (: But knowledge is not equivalent to sagacity. Honestly, I'm not sure if this makes any sense. I'm tired and I'm going to be going to bed soon. I'll have to check this out later. Thanks! Goodnight!

(Sometimes I find technology really irritating :annoyed. Like now. Here goes my third attempt of posting. Yay...) Agreed. Not to say that a 30 year old deserves more respect, but it should be displayed differently. The ways I respect my mom and my two year old neighbor, for example, are both distinct -but it's respect all the same. Everyone deserves respect (Gosh I feel redundant), but is should be presented in a way that's unique to the individual.
