Find out what Kidzworld members think about the current Pledge of Allegiance court case. - Page 2

1 If he gets offended then he doesn't have to say it. There are people in the world that do believe in God and want it to stay. They founded this country upon God, why stop now?

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

1 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.

1 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.

1I 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:

1 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.

1 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.

1 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...

    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.

    Kaitlyn Age: 12  Bio: he was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Her mother, Jessica Cadice was truly a woman with a heart of gold. while her husband, Anderson, a secret agent working for the English Spies Association. They own a Modern mansion in england.  Kaitlyn in the story, is explained with her personality and relationship with the butler, cook, maid, and others. Chapter 1  Kate was a girl of 12 years old. Kaitlyn, her name to be prefered, Woke up in the middle of the night. sweeping her covers to the side, she stepped out of bed, opening her window to breathe the fresh night air. Contrary to what she expected, the air was misty and very musty. She covered her nose. "In england, why must we be inside clouds at 1 am?  Kaitlyn went downstairs of the blackwell mansion. Her silk slippers made a rough sound over the dark grey carpet on the balcony. Looking over to the kitchen. She smells A fresh Peach pie. She automatically knew who made it. Mr. Baxster, the butler, loved pies. He owned a shop 1 street corner away from the mansion. Kaitlyn went down stairs to find the cook, Miss Laquel, obviously making a variety of pies. Pies scattered everywhere, Kaitlyn scratched her head. Why would mss Laquel make this many cakes at 1 am?   Chapter 2 Kaitlyn decided to investigate the scene. She heard her father talking about "investigating a scene" one time. She Looked for Any clues. She found a Silk blue notebook with a lock on it. She suspected Miss Laque had the key. Nonetheless, It was probably important, so she Hid it in the kitchen cupboard behind the stinky cheese spices. Dad never used them. Mom said they were taking up space. Dad always said he'll get rid of them soon. "Soon=Never. What a waste." She said, holding her nose. She opened one pie. "Ugh! What a horrible smell!" She screamed. The cook rubbed her eyes. "Huh? Who.. Nevermind. Now the pies. " Where was Kaitlyn? Hiding in the window curtain. "Mr. Baxster will LOVE these Pie samples for his bakery." She said in a suggestively Happy voice. She ran upstairs to her room to get dressed, after putting the pies To rest in her Home-sewed bag. She put the two samples of the stinky pie in the mouse trap. And then, she put the rest in the garden. Kaitlyn peeked out of the curtain. She held it up to make her way into the living room. "Roses eat pie?" She looked at the plants. "Ahh. Fertilizer Pie. Bón Appetit, flowers."   Chapter 3 Looking at the flowers covered in fertilizer, she realised she was wasting time. The clock said  I:oII which mother taught her was 1:02 am. She decided to catch up on sleep. It was to early to be awake. She ran up the stair to her bedroom. She ockked the door. tHen she realised.. Her bedroom balcony had been open. There were no signs or anyone in in the home. "Oh, it must be the wind" She shrugged . Which was quite reasonable because this wind was stronger than a mountain lion. Particularly tonight.  She put her robe on and made her way to the castle-like balcony. "What a dark night. Starry, beautiful" She lay there, on the balcony. "What a-" *yawn* She fell asleep on the balcony.
