Kind of like "In God We Trust"?<quoted text>
Actually, the Pledge of Allegiance is not supported by biblical teachings, but you can't tell that to the Religious Right because they already know everything there is to know - ask YaA... There are Christian sects who will not make or take oaths in accordance with scripture, but they are considered fringe groups by the mainstream.
Even as a child, I never saw the point of reciting either the pledge to flag and republic or the Lord's Prayer (which at an early age is for all intents and purposes the pledge of allegiance to cross and Christianity) every weekday or Sunday simply because grownups told me to. Given what I can only deem rampant disloyalty of politicians and dishonesty of Christians, I don't perceive that rote and oaths do a lot of good.
We put Darwin on our money.
Can you imagine the hysteria there would be in the USA if that were to happen over there?
