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.

Should these things really be taught or talked about in sixth grade? Should the Holocaust? Should Slavery? Should the Civil Rights movement? Because each of those subjects are definitely more inappropriate than the LGBT and what they stand for and yet it continues to be taught by teachers and learned by children in grades as low as fourth grade. Compared to those events in history, the LGBT discussion seems more like The Cat In The Cat than an inappropriate topic. And besides if a student feels they are mature enough to want to boraden their perspective and thoughts then they should be allowed to do it and not be oppressed or told they're wrong because their views differ from the status quo. Should children really be taught sexuality outside of Specs Ed class? Be honest here, none of us would want our kids to go to school and be lectured on the LGBT.  Well, actually that's not entirely true. ^ It depends on the parents. If they are conservatives, then that'll be true. However, they're lots of liberals who wouldn't mind.  My school educates us on LGBTQ+ quite often, and the students don't mind. Most enjoy it. I've only heard one family complain, and they were conservative.  The teachers are people with political and social opinions as well, which makes it hard to teach fairly. What curriculum would there be?
