No "under God" in Pledge of Allegiance
This was posted on FB.
This you tube video is a porky pig cartoon made in 1939.
Prior to 1954 the words "under God were not in The Pledge of Allegiance.

I don't even say "under God" anymore, I say "under Canada".

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

I never said the pledge as a kid, my teachers just looked at me sternly as they accepted the fact I had the right not to.

I also just saw that facebook post before checking the forum again. I've known this all, but it's always nice to spread for those who don't. Early looney tunes were rather informative.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

I think I stopped saying the pledge some time in Middle School. Even back then it struck me as weird and chant-y and cult-y. It does even more so now. :/ *shudder*

My reason for being is to serve as a cat cushion. That is good enough for me. Wink

And prior 1892 there was no pledge of allegiance, period, until it was introduced as a marketing ploy to sell trinkets like flags and pamphlets.

All that hate's gonna burn you up, kid.

That is hilarious.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
