The Pledge of Allegiance should be part of the opening session of school, with the option of the student to opt out for religious or personal reasons. Congress could adopt a resolution, but the decision ultimately should be the local school board.

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.

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

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

James? Did you ever think there may be ANOTHER REASON that people want the Pledge of Alleigence back into our schools? Why is it every one thinks it is because everyone is a Christian? I know an ATHIEST that wants it bought back into schoolsbecause when he and I went to school, we felt pride and honor placing our right hand on our heart and reciting the Pledge. I also have another reason...since The Pledge was removed, shootings in schools...INCLUDING ELEMENTARY schools have gotten insane....

America was founded on Christian principals in 1776 and our declaration of Independence was signed,we the people..why because it's the 20th century do Americans(not illegals) think we can change our principals.The pledge of Allegiance be changed now.If America is worried about offending anyone,then they themselves are in the wrong Country,love it or leave it.!

I use and start my day as a citizen of our USA with the version of the pledge from 1954. "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

FUCK THE PETITIONS! LET'S ONLY GO AFTER THE SCHOOLS (IF ANY) THAT ARE NOT STARTING THE DAY WITH THE PLEDGE OF THE ALLEGIANCE!

I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE GROUPS THAT ARE MAKING AN EFFORT TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE NOT STARTING THEIR SCHOOL DAY WITH THE PLEDGE BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF OFFENDING SOMEONE OR SOME GROUP!

BY THE WAY, NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO PROVIDE ME WITH A SINGLE SCHOOL THAT DOES NOT START ITS DAY WITH THE PLEDGE!

IF YOU KNOW OF SUCH A SCHOOL POST THE NAME AND CONTACT INFORMATION FOR THAT SCHOOL.

I AM STILL WAITING!!!!
