Default Should We Keep "Under God" In The Pledge?

In 2002, the Pledge of Allegiance was considered "unconstitutional" because it had "under God" in it. People believe the pledge seems to force one to believe in God, and that it contradicts with the 1st Amendment. The pro-pledgers believe that the "God" in the pledge isn't necessarily the Christian God, but can be considered your own personal God, whether it be Muslim, or Hindu, or whatever you believe. Especially since recent polls imply that 80-90 percent of Americans believe in a God in one form or another.

Give me 3 reasons (more if you like) on why we should or should not keep "under God" in the pledge.

There are a couple of threads on this topic. I say just let the people say it, if they please. If they don't, then they can just step outside. I personally don't think it's a big deal. People just make it into a big deal.


Anyways, you don't live in NorCal. I effing live in Nor Cal. (where are you from?)

I = Atheist, and as a atheist I find it ridiculous that people actually argue over this subject. Who the fuck cares, its not a bid deal, its 2 words. If you dont want to say them then don't. Its your own choice, just get it off the fucking ballot. Its a waste of voters time.

If they want it in, then that's fine, however it should immediately relinquish everyone in this country from ever being compelled to say it if they don't feel like saying it.

^True.

I wish it could stay on there...but if people are offended by it...then the government needs to take it off.

Then again...I'm pretty sure the Federal Reserve is privately owned...and they print the money (or so I was taught). So we may not get a say in the matter...one way or the other.

Either way...I don't really care if it stays on the money. It's not like it's God's most valuable treasure...or anything.

THANKS SOLID................................& STORMS!!!

I could care less on this one. More important fish to fry for the government.

As for this forum, yes it shouldn't be on there. Separation of church and state. Plus what god wants currency labeled with a reference to them?

It messes up the whole rhythm... But it certainly shouldn't be a focus. It was put in in response to those "godless communists", but that isn't really an issue now. The only thing is that some people might get carried away. It's practically a crime to wish people a merry Christmas in public. Happy Holidays, it's more politically correct. Bah... Politic Correctness needs to take a long walk off of a short universe.
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a night.
Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm the rest of his life.
