Ed ecco le risposte:

“One nation, under Canada, above Mexico.”

-Robin Williams

I’m Christian, but it needs to be removed from all public buildings and our money. All are tantamount to government establishment of religion, and violate the 1st Amendment.

The Pledge, though, is an abomination and should be entirely removed. Our country fought for its independence to be able to be free of pledges of fealty and forced recitation is something that gets douchebags like Kim Jong Un hard.

“One nation under God”

wasn’t added to the pledge until 1954

so yeah, it can be removed. and should be.

I’m okay with removing the pledge of allegiance all together. It’s creepy and cultish.

It was inserted by Congress in the early fifties as a reaction to the red scare. And even though the original pledge has socialistic origins, I’m not a fan of pledging loyalty to a government. Loyalty to governments can be earned and lost.

Get rid of the entire pledge. It’s super creepy to have children literally pledge their allegiance to the US flag every single day.

The fact you have a pledge at all is weird.

Sincerely, the rest of the world.

I think the entire pledge should go. Forcing young children to pledge blind allegiance to their government is creepy and fucked up. It’s the kind of thing you would expect from North Korea, not from a supposedly free country. All governments are corrupt and fallible, and none of them are deserving of your unconditional allegiance.

I’ll go further in that there shouldn’t be a pledge of allegiance to begin with unless it’s attached the oath of enlistment or oath of office.

We should not be indoctrinating our kids with nationalism at all, especially Christian Nationalism.

I think we should remove the pledge altogether.

we went 178 years without it. its unneeded and false

Get rid of it and restore the national motto back to “e pluribus unum”

Edit: If its still the motto let’s put it back on our money instead of “In God We Trust”.

No. Not everyone in America is religious.

Remove it. Stop forcing your religion onto the rest of us. And take it off our money too while you’re at it!

Get rid of the pledge of allegiance all together

I’ll swear to protect and uphold the constitution but I am not going to pledge my allegiance to a piece of fabric flapping in the wind

Let’s just get rid of the whole thing altogether

entire pledge

I am not American.

My understanding is that the US is an officially secular nation according to the First Amendment. Therefore there should be no reference to God in the pledge of allegiance. Also, the very existence of that pledge has totalitarian overtones to most people living in liberal democracies, so the entire pledge must go.

Speaking as a Christian, one can only become Christian by making a free choice to do so. This requires society to be secular. For this reason too, there should be no reference to God in any such pledge.

Keep it in. It’s worked wonderfully to rid our government of corruption. Because lying, cheating, and stealing are immoral, and deeply religious societies would never do such things.

(Big, fat, honking /s).

I’d remove the entire pledge.
