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.

    There. Over there is the garden. Encased in shrubery. Lightly sun kissed. It called the girl. She listened. Skipping. She skipped toward the garden. She entered through its gates. A leaf-strewn path welcomed her. Fresh Gardenias, Peonies, and Daisies. They all greeted her. They all called her toward them, the rose bush most compelling. Skipping. She skipped toward the rose bush. The roses hugged and caressed the girl. The girl hugged and caressed the roses. A gleam of light ran across her eye. She looked at her bottom right. Steel. A steel door. This door didn't call. It beckoned, yelled, pulled, enticed. She pulled open the latch and fell inside. She landed on a surprisingly soft bed of flowers. Roses to be specific. She spotted a tall woman. Dark chocolate hair cascaded down her shoulders. Her skin tinged with chlorophyll. Her irises were deep blood red and laced with gold. The Rose Queen. She emanated mystical coldness. "I'm sorry." she whispered. She flicked her finger upwards. The roses grew thorn-ridden vines. They enveloped around the girl. They punctured her. She screamed out of pain and fright, but she kept fighting. "HELP! I'LL DO ANYTHING!" the girl cried. "Anything?" the Queen whispered "Anything!" the girl said. All of a sudden, a golden sword floated in midair. She took it with her only free hand. She began to slash away at the vines. She finally was able to climb out of the bush. "Thank you." the girl said to the Queen. A soft tear came down the Rose Queen's cheek. "I'm so sorry." she said Before the girl can ask why, the Queen began to dissolve into a green sparkling light. The only thing left was the sparkling light. The girl gasped. The light went directly inside of her. She fell to the ground and screamed. Her hair turned dark brown. Her skin became tinged with chlorophyll. She grew taller. The little bit of blood she had left went to her irises. Gold began to lace up ###### ### irises. A new bush grew with new colorful roses. She stood up and sat on a newly developed golden throne. A new Rose Queen has been born.
