Well, if you are a kid in one of nine states starting next Monday you will be breaking the law to say the pledge. CNN reported it. It also said that if the decision goes to the Supreme Court they may make a “religion-lite” decision by saying that such general words do not imply government support of religion. I was offended by the comment. It made it seem that the Supreme Court is really pro-church and state integration, but didn't want to be too obvious about it.
CNN's article is here.
But let's think about this whole church and state issue. The whole point in our country coming into existence (the US) was to allow freedom of religion. So, while our government is not supposed to endorse one religion with taxes, such as other countries do, it was created to support churches. The point of having this country was so that we could be “free to worship God.” Not that we wouldn't be able to worship God in any government run place.
How come the church and state people can't see this?
