I think that the Pledge of Allegiance should stay the same way. Maybe just more people would be comfortable with the same one.

I think it's wrong [to take out the words "under God"], 'cause the only people who don't believe in God, or a God, or more than one God even, are athiests. And there really aren't THAT many athiests around. Plus, the Pledge has had "under God" in it for a long time, and now I think it would just sound weird to say "One nation, indivisible", without "under God" in the middle. Yeah, I mean, come on. It's a free country. If ya wanna say 'under God', then say it. If ya don't, don't.

I think it's right [to take out the words "under God"] because after all, the constitution does state that u have the freedom to believe in anything u wish, and some people have chosen not to believe in God, therefore they might be offended. And actually, there are THAT many people around (athiests,) and some are offended.

I agree with Lil Gavilana. People can believe in whatever they want, and reducing the rights of people by making them say they believe in 'God' isn't constitutional. Also, what if they don't believe in 'God' and they say it everyday at school? They wouldn't be promising anything.

Ok, so we usually limit feedback to Kidzworld members but we thought since the Pledge story has been getting so much attention, we would invite teachers from across the United States to send in their comments as well. Check out they have to say:
Dr. Newdow should look at the money he uses every day, too. I'm pretty sure it says, "In God We Trust". If he is to hold true to his convictions, then I would have to kindly ask him to no longer use American currency. Maybe he should pass his money along to someone who does trust in God. I would not have ruled the Pledge unconstitutional if I were the judge. That is like saying our money is unconstitutional. If this Mr. Newdow has a problem with the Pledge I think he should have his daughter refrain from saying it, but why should the majority bend to his will? Personally, I think there should be more "God" in the classroom and less of the pessimistic and overly sensitive Mr. Newdow.

I think the Pledge should stay the same but kids and parents should have the right to choose if they want to do it or not because some people don't believe in God.

I would be ashamed to say that I took the Pledge of Allegiance to court. God is the true founder of our nation, not man. I really don't see how these kind of people even accept their paychecks - they do say "In God We Trust." America needs God. We should all wake up and smell the coffee, cuz God is coming back someday and woe unto them who do not believe...
