The pledge should include a reference to Monty Pythons "The Life of Brian" and a memorial to all the dead bodies of religious superiority.

Since the closing ceremonies of the summer Olympics in London gave it homage, why shouldn't the lying liars of lying religions everywhere honor the sanctity of divine congregational stupidity?

"Always look on the bright side of life." {Sung by the Crucified Congregation of Religious Intolerance, Saint Brian conducting.}

Well, they are mocking the nation by printing and further spreading that bullshit about their god, which isn't everyone's god.

Your god, your rules, huh? And everyone else's gods are wrong, false, etc....

Don't brainwash these kids with your crap. Keep religion out of schools and pledges outside of your church. I didn't enjoy our commanders praying at formations or functions either.... Let a jew, Muslim, or other commander pray to his god... The troops would have gone nuts.

I'm all for separation of church and state but saying the Pledge is perfectly OK with me. It's no big deal really and we'll drive ourselves crazy trying to drive out every reference to God from our country's traditions and values. And to what end? Let's stick with the big issues of freedom of religion and not having government at any level trying to endorse religion. That allows us to truly practice our own faiths freely.

under god isn't needed in a nation which recognizes the gods of all people. Our strength as a nation should never come from religion, but rather each other as we are the nation.

When we send our young to fight our wars, we shed our blood, we as a nation bleed to protect the greater part of the nation. This is why war for profit, ego, or anything other than national survival, should be considered treason as the nation was never at risk.

God/god or anyones gods never descended upon the beeches, they never descended upon the camps in east europe of WWII. Men, godless and god fearing descended from the sky or ran up the beeches and died so to stop a enemy which intended to wipe out another group of people.

Until such time as all gods God or any other being greater than humanity itself answers for their lack of action... We should endeavor to wipe them out of our culture. They do not wish to be known for anything other than fear mongering (for example: wiping out cities or flooding the world.) Then we should not bother to worship them, or even give them a consideration.

If such beings will punish us for this, then I say we give them a reason to fear us as we plunge our swords into their chest and take their kingdoms for our own. That is our birth right, to conquer. It was given to us by the blood we shed and make others shed for our own profit... It was taught to us by these gods Gods or other... They should reap what they have sowed.

Using the term 'god' is borrowing a proper noun from the teutonic language to refer to the deity of that culture. Using the term 'god' in a pledge is an attempt to appeal or enjoin a deity to approve of the pledge and confer success on the plan of action.

Since American politics now incudes a 'divide and conquer' class warfare strategy that implores divine blessing, it usage has become hypocritical.

The pledge should include a disclaimer by 'God Source' for any hypoctrical political/religious actions that misrepresent his/her/their true nature. That would effectively cancel the attempt of the Republic-con Party/Tea Party Taliban to invoke a god they do not know, but pretend is on their side.

Well, to some people, god = allah, but they could still say "god" to mean that. To other people, it's mother earth, or money, or anything that invokes a sense of worship or dominance.

Rather than a room full of people pronouncing which god it is they're worshiping -- and of course you don't "pronounce" capitalization -- the finger-quote idea just seems funny. Or not.

If you don't capitalize it, there's no reason to say it. Not capitalizing, or making finger quotes, is mocking, which I am also not OK with.

Better yet, do those 'finger quotes' when you say it.

"under god" doesn't bother me if you don't capitalize it when you say it.

You sick fucks who hate the pledge can replace "Under God" with "Under Obama" or "Under Allah."
