It is completely illegal to force anyone to recite the pledge.  The pledge was not thrown out of school the way organized prayer sessions were.  Instead, the Supreme Court ruled that students had a right to refuse to recite it.  You should report these people.  Contact FFRF, the ACLU or even, gasp, the Federal authorities.

I agree.

PFAW, and SPLC are another organizations that will help.

Also agree.  Once she's given you the awesome grade I'm sure you'll get, I'd take up for the children's rights.  Anonymity can be good at the beginning of a career though...

Anyway, what's the point in having a pledge, if it's compulsory?  It's supposed to be about the indivual choosing to affirm their allegiance to the nation.  Are we living in a democracy or not? (hypothetic question here, not intending any derailment)

what she did is unconstitutional and (imo) immoral :(

The Pledge of Allegiance is probably the most morinoc thing ever written.

I pledge allegance to the flag!!!?

How about pledging allegiance to the constitution?

 

 

 

It's shameful that McCarthyism is still alive.

 

 

Sing it loud, brother!  It's amazing to me how much damage one man (McCarthy) can do to a nation.

It took a lot of cowardly complicity to allow him power.  He wasn't alone.  I'm grateful someone stood up to him.

agree!
too bad the hate was strong enough to kill her and part of her family... and christians call themselves loving people. anyone who would do anything for a god who'll do anything to make you his pet makes a christian the bad dog of god
Personally, I don't and will not partake in the pledge, or the rituals of The Star Spangled Banner. The "under god" thing is only part of the reason.  Until everyone is actually treated equally with liberty and justice, it's my way of protesting.
well Eric, i think we should focus on the under god section for now, it is the most offensive verse.
