There is a petition that has been started for President Obama and Congress to eliminate UNDER GOD from the pledge. The pledge wasn't written with these words in it and there are many people in this country that are being excluded by that statement. The inclusion of this phrase is highly divisive and unnecessary. Removing this statement will not take religious people's false beliefs from them, but it will cease to force non-believing citizens to recite a false claim. If you would like to sign the petition I have attached a link. Eventually if enough people get behind this petition the government will have no choice but to listen.
