Pledge of Allegiance Feedback
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. 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.

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?

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!
