Pledge of Allegiance Feedback

Pledge of Allegiance Feedback - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

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 3

1 I think this is all whack. Personally, I don't say the Pledge. I don't feel the need. I was born here and that's good enough for me. The things that I do in everyday life prove that I am an American so I see no reason why I should have to pledge my allegiance to this country every day. We're not Germany in the 1930s here, promising to be good Germans, so why bother? We as students do have rights and one of them is that we do not have to say the Pledge of Allegiance. My ending points are actually questions that we should all think about when it comes to believing that the church and state are seperate:
1. If the church and state are seperate, how come we get religous holdiays off (usually Christian holidays.)
2. How come "In God we trust" is on our money?
3. How come whenever some one is sworn into office or as a witness in court, it's always on the bible?
4. How come it says "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance? Do you know why they get away with that? Because the church and state really aren't seperate. They're just telling you it is to please me and people like me.

1 I think the Pledge should stay the way it is, because the Pledge has been in the United States for years and is older than some states themselves. So why should the states say what happens to the flag?

1 I think the Pledge should definitely be changed because it is clearly a violation of the first amendment. Separation of church and state, as well as freedom of religion. Think, if you are a Muslim for instance, saying "under God" instead of "under Allah," is the school board and government telling you that the god you believe in, doesn't exist? This is not even the way the Pledge was originally written and is not the basis our nation was built on. You do not need god to be patriotic, and you do not need god to be an American. REMOVE THE WORDS "under God" from the Pledge! It is unconstitutional!

I also think a case of prey defending itself is ok, but not continuous hunting of that animal. For example, if something is competing with humans, I think it's ok to kill it, because that's what happens in nature, unless we are continuously hunting them. You realize this is just an appeal to nature right?

    I think torturing isn't justified, no matter the situation. Even if these people torture others, by torturing them we are as bad as them, we are lowering ourselves down to their level. There are better ways to deal with people and they should be used.
