Pledge of Allegiance

Time to nix ‘under God’

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
State lawmakers all over the country are considering resolutions that praise a mistake made in 1954 when “under God” was added to the official Pledge of Allegiance. Feb. 10 marked the 60th anniversary of this regrettable action, one that tells tens of millions of nonreligious Americans that they are illegitimate citizens of their own country. I hope that Washington lawmakers reject this idea and deny support for a re-declaration that humanist Americans are to be seen as inferior by everyone else.
