also, lets think about it. what exactly does the pledge say?
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.
All it impllies is that God is watching over the country. it was implemented by Lincoln during the Civil War, the one nation under God part. as it was put onto our money. It was a dark period in the north, and they were on the verge of loosing. it was to bring the country together as it lwas ment to do here as well. If athiests were really against it, then they would stop using US currency as it is on there too.
