    And you don't think a child refusing to say the pledge would not be singled out by other children and (possibly teachers) ridiculed?

It should be something that people put in if they feel like it, which is how it had been up until the 50's.
    I didn't know that. Do you have a source?

    I have no problem with the "under god" part of the pledge (even though I am an atheist), but I do have a problem with it being a ritual performed in schools.

    My reasoning for this is such that my allies should be those who are opposed to Obama for his "socialist" ideals, and my opponents should be those who promote socialist ideals, but ironically, the reverse is almost universally true.

    Given that his protest is over the rights of gays and lesbians, the taunts have taken a predictable bent. “In the lunchroom and in the hallway, they've been making comments and doing pranks, and calling me gay,” he said. “It's always the same people, walking up and calling me a gaywad.”

    That's about par for the caring and compassionate, love thy neighbor, hypocrites.

    Excellent story BTW, thanks for posting it.

    I guess that kinda shoots the cons in the foot then when they claim socialists and liberals are bad for the country and hate god...

    So? You don't support a persons right to speak out against something they dislike/hate or simply view the subject differently than you?

    Beyond question? I think any intelligent person would agree that the premise is Christianity. Jews and Muslims don't believe Jesus is the messiah which excludes them along with all other religions and non-religious.

    Forgive me if I find that to be a big pile of bull****.
