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.

I think it's North Dakota that has a lot of available land in the northern part of the state, they could all move there.

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.

Give our children something to be proud of. Pledging allegiance to our country's flag should be back in school so kids will learn to be proud of their country. Stop taking our rights away little by little. If they can't pledge their allegiance to the flag go to another country.

should i be proud that if i was a student that my country and its people took away my freedom of choice not to recite a pledge? i dont think so. i have many other things in this country to be proud of like the many brave americans who fought so u and i can have these freedoms

Julia Shaye Kuhl Johnson

I do not support this, if they went back to the original maybe, but my child will NOT be made to recite this. We are NOT one nation under any god.

Greg Gatts: Could NOT have been better said! Very nice and polite. Julia, I disagree with you. You see, I to this day STILL recite The Pledge of Alleigence. Not only do I do that daily, but I am so PROUD of MY Country that every time I recite it, it brings me HONOR as well to my Country. Maybe you should think about WHAT IS BETTER FOR MY CHILD, rather than YOUR wants, huh?

Also, as I stted to someone above, I know someone whom is ATHIEST and he misses the Pledge and he also believes it would help children to grow up better with better additudes and less thoughts of killing people using a gun. People continue to use RELIGION when it comes to the Pledge, with me and my athiest friend? It has absolutely nothing to do with God, it has a lot to do with Pride and HONOR for our countries, ourselves and others around us. Looks like you don't have any of that

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 can't say I agree with you about taking out "God" in the Pledge. I'm by no means a religious person and it does not bother me to have Gods name said. Though I do have to say that the fact that you had the respect to still capitalize it even though you do shows you are pretty awesome

Nobody is forcing you to say "under God". And whatever "God" you believe in is not dictated under as a state-religion. Those Americans who understand the history of this nation and the deep commitment and emphasis placed on religion by our Founding Fathers appreciate the hand of Providence in becoming a free nation... not to mention the first Europeans that came as Pilgrims seeking religious liberty, or the tens-of-thousands of Mormon Pioneers who helped conquer and settle the West. If you...

If you choose not to worship, or not even believe in a God... that's your right and liberty to do so. But it isn't your right to dictate what the rest of Americans can do, nor force your unbelief and ignorance of history upon the rest of us.

Why should we have stop saying the pledge at school, we have to have it taken out because it offends somebody?? Why do we have to have other peoples beliefs shoved down our throats aren't we entitled to the same freedom of speech..if you don't like it don't participate, so simple!! If you don't believe in God why do people work so hard to wipe out everything about Him??
