These people have the freedom to believe as they like, but, where are MY freedoms? Me and my freedoms are just as important to me. Don't change our schools. Make your own, or move to a another country that you like. There is a lot of land out there for sale, buy some of it and move all your God hating asses there. You wont have to look at crosses, churches, Christmas trees, Easter bunnies, and you can live your Godless lives the way you want.

You do not have the faintest idea about "being a left wing socialist"... I know because unfortunately I lived under the communist regime. I love the United States of America. You do not what freedom is until you lose it.

This is a disgrace to our ancestors who came to this country seeking freedom. Our forefathers fought many battles and suffered great losses in order for us to be free. The Constitution of the United States is a flawless document, one that provides freedom for all. People who are in favor of changing it should find a different place to live. United we stand and divided we fall.

I agree with what you said,"divided we fall". If this nation does not turn itself around, get back on the right side of morality with God Almighty, and doesn't cease in promoting, encouriaging, and enacting sin as okay and national law to be recognized by all, then America is going to fall and fall hard.

I do think the proposed 28th amendment should be adopted, though. Namely, that Congress, the Senate and all federal employees should be forced to live under the same laws they pass for everyone else.

Saying the pledge of allegiance is the right thing to do! If you don't like it, then you need to sit down and not say anything! If you do not like hearing about God, then leave America! God is hear to stay. Please pray for our country, who has lost their moral views! God Bless America!

Yes, you are absolutely correct in your statement that "God is here to stay". No one nor anything can nor will wipe the existence of our Lord God Almighty no matter how hard they ay try. Anyone who thinks omitting Gods Holy name from the Pledge of Allegiance and, or stop students from praying in school is going to make God pack up and leave town is sadly mistaken. All they will accomplish is bringing down swift justice on themselves for their rebellious ungrateful, attitudes and sadly some...

leave america because i dont believe in god? thats crazy thinking what happened to my rights not to believe? american is about the both of us having the freedom to choose to believe and worship a god or not . american is NOT about u forcing your religious beliefs on others. if u don t like that and camt respect my choice then maybe u should leave america since your ideaogly is completely un american

Laura Barrett

Whoever started this petition did not do their research. Only six states do not require schools to recite the pledge. In my state, it is the law to recite it in schools. The kids choose if they want to participate, but it is recited daily. http://undergod.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=000074

It is not about laws. Schools have the choice to decide whether or not to have the Pledge recited. You can have two different schools in the same city with different policies. It's about bringing back the values that this Nation was founded on.

There's another comment in which I agree to some extent with what you are saying ( there are a few,one where someone was so hateful I replied to them in the same fashion childish?probably). I'm not saying anyone should be "forced". I'm by no means religious so I get what many who disagree with reciting PA are saying. Is what bothers me is why take away everything all in being politically correct? Where is the harm in just sitting/standing while others do recite? Just out of respect for other...

Just out of respect for other "people", not religion. Nor am I ill informed on the school issue, that info is easily obtainable through the school district in which you reside. Having to move every few years this is something we have learned first hand.

laura thats my whole point the freedom to choose. far too many have been hateful or condescending towards the ones that disagree with prayer and pledged forced on the kids i believe we should all have the freedom to choose nothing more. i oppose anyones rights to be taken away no matter what their views are

Do you honestly believe these people didn't do their homework? Apparently those states where it is not recited clearly want it, have you considered this. Thus the reason for this petition.

Everything that our Nation has been built on, its very foundation, is expressed in those words. Like it or not God has been part of that foundation from the beginning. To stop reciting it because some ones feelings might be hurt is overly "politically correct". If some ones religion is offended by the use of the word God or someone does not believe, then don't say it! They have that freedom because our forefathers fought for it, but to completely remove the Pledge of Allegiance because of...

Too many of this Nations values are being given up because feelings might be hurt, if you don't like the values that our Country keeps sacrificing in the name of being "politically correct" then leave, because you have that freedom also!

thats just crazy, have u considered the people that dont believe in a god? how about muslim americans? should we force them to recite under god? what ever happened to freedom of religion? u want to take that away too?

again what Toni says is untrue, under god was only added after 1956, only "ONE" Founding father self identified as Christian. A nation does not need a GOD to be "good" or moral. infact a god does not make a good man do good, but religion could very well cause a good man to do bad.

Neither of you two can read, lol. Like I said above if you don't believe or it is not within your religion "DON'T RECITE IT" that is also a freedom we all have. You are all over the place in your comments Kevin, that its hard to even understand what you believe. And James where did I give a history lesson on the P.A.? I was obviously referring to what this Nation was founded on and like it or not that included God. If I implied that only God makes people moral I apologize. That is definitely...

I was obviously referring to what this Nation was founded on and like it or not that included God. If I implied that only God makes people moral I apologize. That is definitely not what I believe, as I don't believe in religion. The problem I have is the amount of sacrifice to our history being made all in the name of being politically correct. Because everyone is so selfish about what they "know" is right or wrong and no one can ever stop and say "this does not harm me, this does not infringe on my rights" and just show a little respect for PEOPLE and the history of our Nation

i have been clear in what i believe. i have said many times i believe in the right to choose to recite a pledge or a prayer or not. i dont believe anyone should force their beliefs on others. is that clear enough for u? this country was founded in part on the freedom of religion
