Tell Me If I'm Wrong
Well I was tasked with saying the Pledge of Allegiance in my school over the intercom. I said the original pledge (the one before it was changed to counter Russians). I said the pledge w/o the words Under God in it. People said I was being offensive. I don't believe so. Do you think I did the right thing?

I would give a f#@k, but I'm afraid to alert you that I am celibate.

I think being forced to say a pledge of allegiance is wrong all together...

But if you are going to have to say it, you may as well say the real Pledge. Thumbsup

Offensive = Stop thinking for yourself. Consider

You not only did the right thing, in my opinion, that was also quite brave. My son caught a lot of crap because he refused to stand for the pledge in high school. You are not alone in this. Hug

In high school I always stood for the pledge out of respect, but never spoke it.

Tell them to take it up with Thomas Jefferson... Drinking Beverage


[N]o man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burdened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.
-- Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom (1779), quoted from Merrill D Peterson, ed, Thomas Jefferson: Writings (1984), p. 347


The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
-- Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781-82

Thanks guys, I felt like I was doing the right thing despite all the heat I got from it.

I would give a f#@k, but I'm afraid to alert you that I am celibate.

It's impossible for a human to do the right thing.

I think I'm here because I want to be proven wrong on my views. So far, I have not seen a good argument against them.
