    Pledge

    In the pledge it does not say "under Judea-Christian God." It just says God. Whose to say what god one is thinking about when it is said. God is a term used by many religions present and ancient used for many different "beings" (ie. the Native Americans, the ancient Greeks, and the ancient Romans). And no one is forced to say the pledge, also if one feels uncomfortable saying "under God" they could just leave that part out. The fact still remains that our country was founded on principles of Christianity, the fore-fathers, as far as we know, did not think in terms of religions other than Christianity.

    I also think that it was sad that the man who brought this to court used his daughter to pass his own agenda.
