    The people who wish to have the term "under god" removed from the traditional creed are merely seeking a reversion to a time when the ignorant and fearful were not given serious consideration. Ironically, most of them have no knowledge of this.

    And going further, the pledge of allegiance is a socialist brainwashing tool. I find it truly disgraceful that our education system has gotten so horrible that nobody seems to have a damned clue about the history of a creed they recited on a daily basis as a child. There is nothing patriotic about the pledge. It is anathema to everything for which the constitution stands and to what the founders were trying to create.
    So you mean to tell me sir, that "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. is an anathema to the Constitution? Makes a lot of since....

    Of course. As I said, it's a matter of knowing history. It's "We the people of the United States..." not "We the mindless subjects of the United States". The pledge was created by a socialist in order to promote socialist ideas. True story.

    I know about Francis Bellamy, you don't have to lecture me.... but besides the pledging of allegiance....there really is no socialist idea in the Pledge even in its original form...

    One example: By pretending that being told that saying Merry Christmas to everyone is offensive to those who are non-christian is a first amendment issue. Only someone who is in the midst of supporting a rampage could possibly pull off that kind of irrational victim-mentality nonsense. Being told that something is offensive is, in no way shape or form, a threat to one's ability to speak freely.

    You see, all I said was that people on the religious right go on a "rampage" if they are told "that saying "merry Christmas" to everyone is offensive to those who are not Christian". Instead of reacting to what I said, you invented a way that this is a way that Christians are victimized which is the first step required for those on the religious right to "go on a rampage".

    Step one: Pretend that your rights are being violated and that you are being victimized
    Step two: Pretend the imaginary issue that you just invented is a widespread one
    Step three: Rampage/profit.

    I didn't say that there were any socialist ideas in the constitution. The socialist ideas are in the pledge of allegiance.

    And there is no pledging of allegiance in the constitution.

    Easily. Somebody started talking about the LGBT community going on "a rampage" when they feel that their rights are being violated, but decided to then pretend that the religious right doesn't go on a rampage when they feel that their rights are being violated.

    The pledge is a great example of the religious right going on a rampage when they pretend that their rights are being violated. It's not as good as the imaginary War on Christmas example, but it's certainly a good example of people on the right overreacting to something utterly meaningless.

    So saying that Christmas is a historical event that has been celebrated for hundreds of years, and saying people in this country have the right to freely express their merriness of the occasion is a rampage....Tucker Case you are just a fountain of logic
