This time I am in argument with my mother over "under god" being in the pledge and how we are disrespectful to our country for not saying it. I am going insane with people confusing patriotism with or pledge that was altered in 1954 and violates our first amendment. I am very much in agreement with the rest of our allegiance; just not the "god" part. Any other rants out there?

I want to tear my hair out when I hear, 'It's just a theory." ARGHHHH

The "cell theory" isn't being questioned every day now is it?
Nor that pesky thing called gravity...:)
You are hilarious!
You believe in gravity? ;)

Not to mention Atomic Theory....

 

M.

Couldn't agree with you more.

I heard a response about the theory of gravity that says go jump off a building if it's 'just a theory' hehehe

That's a great comeback! lol

If I may return to the Pledge, I like to remind xians:

1. Before those words were added, America won two major wars, and

2. After those words were added, America has mainly overthrown elected governments and lost wars.

And this:

In WW1 and WW2, the words GOTT MIT UNS (god is with us) was on German soldiers belt buckles.

Why do xians want America to be under god? Do they need a dominant/submissive relationship?

 

Well OF COURSE 'god' is ALWAYS on OUR side!  That's why no Americans have ever died in wars! ;)

When I taught U S history I'd say that the first draftee on every side was god, and the first casualty was truth.  Hasn't changed.
