    The beauty of it is, I can pledge allegiance however I wish. It is not the ritual that counts, but it is the sincerity that does.

    I imagine it would be extremely difficult to pledge loyalty to "one nation, under God," when one does not believe such a God exists.

    I must disagree with you there. Ritual and sincerity both have value.

    It wasn't originally written "Under God." That's why I asked.

    I haven't seen that, but he damn well better not have. I saw an Obama pin earlier in this thread with a part of a Flag on it, which is arguably not a violation but still pretty lawyerly (read: scummy) if you ask me.

    Indeed, it's a shame that they changed it.

    Oh, I get what you mean. Well, you can't revert to the old one any more than you can change or delete words in the Pledge of your own volition. The Pledge is defined by Congress, not individuals.

    So is their some reason in your estimation that they cannot choose to stick with the original version?

    My guess? Because congress passed it and we must obey congress.

    Congress can change it back again if they want. We can change it back. We should.
