Pledge of Allegiance Feedback

Pledge of Allegiance Feedback - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

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 2

1 "Under God" was only put in the Pledge because of the Cold War. The Knights of Columbus appealed to the Supreme Court to put in the words "under God" to "distinguish the US from 'Godless' Communist countries," such as the Soviet Union and Cuba. By 1954 (when it was put in), half of the world was under Communist rule. I pity the children who refuse to say the Pledge because of political/religious reasons, for they are questioned and criticized like the KGB for being "un-American." Before the words were inserted, no one felt like it was missing anything. I say that guy should have waited to take his claim to court, because a lot of people want to see him dead. We need to remain neutral on religion or we'll turn out like Afghanistan, Iran, or the former Soviet Union.

1 I think they should change the Pledge, because it is against many peoples beliefs. There is supposed to be a seperation of Religion and State. As Americans, we have the right to say the Pledge if we want to. I feel that if you are making the students stand up and say "under God," you are lessening the value of their beliefs, and are throwing the Constitution out the window! What happened to "Land of the Free" and when did we become "Land of the Conceited"? We complain about everything, and I believe if we argue about the Pledge, the nation needs help.

1 I think that the parents that don't want their kids saying the Pledge of Allegiance should write a letter to the school so the kids can stand outside the door! But if u ask my opinion, I don't think it is unconstitutional! If it wasn't for God, none of us would be here! I think the Pledge of Allegiance should stay the way it is! Just because a couple of people think it is unconstitutional it's a big uproar! And it's not fair that they never ask kids what we think and we're the ones that have to say it every morning! I thought kids were supposed to be people to! Duh!

1 It should stay there. It reminds me of the past in America.

1 I think that it's so stupid for someone to make a big deal out of two words. The reason it was in the Pledge is because back in the 1700's in England and America, they beleived in God. This was all before immigration. So when we won the war, EVERYONE in the U.S. besides Indians beleived in God. Now that we have all of these immigrants in the U.S. with their own beliefs, they think that it is wrong for people with different beliefs to say "under God."

    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.

    Well I'm a pretty positive person, for the most part, but there are still some things I just don't like. HATE, even. Because, as we all are, I'm human!! So without any further ado, Ima get into the things I hate: -bullies! I hate em! They are so disrespectful! I mean, what if YOU were on the receiving end? ​-liars! Most of all, there is nothing! And by nothing, I mean NOTHING I hate more than a person who lies! I actually have a much bigger tolerance for jerks than liars bc at least they may be straight with you! ​-ppl on this site who, or any Internet site, who send you a request and you message them, but THEY DONT EVEN TALK TO YOU! I mean, why the HELL did you add me?! I feel like you should send me a request if you actually wanna be one, not just to increase your friends list, in which case, you are undesirable and I delete you! SIMPLE! Just an FYI... ​-OH! aaaand! I think that's really it! I think I just about covered what I hate. HBU???
