Todd,If you truely think that the "Under God" part does not represent a christian god, would you object to changing it to "One Nation, of many faiths"? The Pledge was already changed once in 1953, what would be the problem with changing it again.


Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

        Todd, why would you object? The change I suggested would indictate that this country was founded on religion. It would also express the concept of "Freedom of Religion". As americans we are allowed to worship any way we want.

          I once suggested to Todd that there should be a forum (including occasional polls) for NON-LOTTERY discussion, so that we can 'BS' about other things without leaving the website.

            Susan,

            About your 1.6million people bit, have a quote:
            When some political or ecclesiastical pamphlet, or novel, or poem is making a great commotion, you should remember that he who writes for fools always finds a large public. -Schopenhauer

            Todd,

            So, are you saying "under God" does in fact refer to the god of the judeo-christian belief? Didn't take much to have you change your story, huh? And to ~~~~Don't like it?  You're about 200+ years too late to do anything about it.~~~~ I'm glad the african americans didn't follow your advice.

             

            FREEDOM OF RELIGION!!! (as long as it's some form of christian) Hypocrites.

              Oh boy Loops-the old trump card--"I am glad the African Americans didn't follow your advice". It does not take a genius to know what you are saying and where you are going with that statement. Now I ask you--did you do a poll? Probably not.

              Now Loops, take a laxative-because you are "full of it". Lets not go there with the quote from Schopenhauer cause---believe me-you will lose. Not that this is a contest, but you can not speak for anyone BUT

              Loops. For every one quote you have I have two or three, and before you go throwing in the trump card---take a poll first and see what the results are.



              Interesting how this topic-religion-God and the pledge

              brings out the most educated and uneducated people.

              People fear God. They do not want God in schools--until a child is hurt-or killed-then its "my God, why my child"? First, you do not want God in your schools-then you ask God to save your child, or to help your child, which will it be?



              Ok Loops, take a deep breath--inhale and then let it all out--from the bottom half.



              I pledge to try to understand where your thoughts are and to try not to judge you like you are judging Susan.



              Freedom of speech, did you not forget that? Oh, don't try to throw another quote on me or to throw in another trump card---like I said, believe me you will lose.



              God Bless America, our school system and the men and women who are fighting for their country.

                        Gee, I wonder what I would do if He told me to choose annuity? (PS-I don't tithe...if I did, then He presumably would tell me "lump sum" anyway.) If He told me to choose annuity, would I still listen to Him?
