what a joke only in that state... no one is forced to say the pledge especially the jwhovah witnesses.. dam it is time they give up thinking they are the only ones in this world.. enough.

build your own schools with the billions the freaking men in NY have.. this way your children ill learn only what you want them to learn.. why hasn't any of the big shots written school books?

i do not believe they were forced to say the pledge but.... in respect to all those who do say it... anyone who claims they "cannot say it" should sit or stand quietly. in this case it appears they did neither.

i will be sending a letter off to the superintendent.. i hope others follow

Wow unlisted.
Lets count how many ways your hate overrode logic.
1: nowhere in this story did it say that the complaining students were Witnesses.
2: you claim that nobody is forcing the kids to say the pledge. So, you are automatically assuming that these children are lying? Were you at this school?
3: like it or not, the court system in the United States agrees with these students. If they are paying taxes, how come they should be forced to go to a private school? Is it because they need to be protected from ignorant bigots like yourself?

if a child refuses to make a pledge to the flag that represents the government that pays for their education, the building in which they recieve said education, books, computers, gym equipment,transportation, food, ect. then they should be forced to leave, returning only when they have enough respect for this nation to pledge to it. at no point does the constitution of the united states of america say that it is anyones "right" to be educated at all, expecially at the expense of the "AMERICAN" tax payer.

What about Jehovah's Witness children who are FORCED by THEIR PARENTS not to pledge??
Let's fine their cult, and make their cult leaders fork over some cash, and see how quickly JW children will then be allowed to pledge!!

If you don't want to read my posts, then get off the board.
After "what I did"? Let me guess at the lie you will make up.
Had you bothered to read the article, you would have seen that the Witnesses mentioned were from the 1940s.
But nope, you probably didn't even bother.
And by the way:

Main Entry: big·ot
Pronunciation:\&#712;bi-g &#601;t\
Function: noun
Etymology: French, hypocrite, bigot
Date: 1660
: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

Yeah, you fit that.

Guess what?
I pay taxes too.
And forcing kids out of school just because they hold a different belief then you do?
No, the Constitution does NOT say anything about education but, according to the Supreme Court, it DOES say that you do not need to salute a flag.

Many Jehovah's Witnesses are on public aid. They will gladly take any and all government freebies and handouts, they just refuse to show basic respect to the government.
Virtually every Jehovah'sWitness child would proudly salute were they given a choice, that is why they need to be forced.
Their parents march right into school, and JWchildren are to report any non JW approved activities,(singing a Christmas carol, or saluting) to their parents so the child can be "counseled" (abused) into submission.

maybe your country is different, school fees here are very expensive, and JW don't send their kids to private schools or church run schools, JW pay tax's just like everyone else, and seeing that its a democrocy if one has religious reasons for not saluting the flag or anything else then they shouldn't have to, its a conscience matter.

There are other religions that do not participate in certain festivals as an example, xmas and easter, here many stores do not put up xmas decorations as not to offend minority groups such as Muslims.

Christmas is too politicized.

Children of Jehovah's witnesses are FORCED to be scapegoats of the WBTS.
They have no "choice" in the matter.
If they WANT to pledge, they are emotionally abused into not saluting.
This is not about the rights of children or their beliefs, only the furthering the power of some men controlling a cult.

yes I do agree they are expected to not solute the flag, I think many don't really understand but some do, at such a young age it can be so hard for them.

As a member of a 'cult' I am offended by some of your remarks. We gather together on our given day, chant and sing praise to our leader, and our children partake in our rituals, AND I WILL FORCE MY CHILD TO PARTAKE IF NECESSARY. I do not need his consent, or YOUR approval. They will eat and drink from the nourishment given to us by our 'cults' leaders and be happy. DON'T FORCE RELIGION ON MY FAMILY.

Young age??
I was forced throughout school.
Way past the age I could be baptized, around 9 or so in the cult.
If a JW child can make the "choice" to be baptized at the age of 9, they should be able to salute the flag.
I had the misfortune of having another JW in my class, and was subjected to abusive "counsel".
I guarantee that the vast majority of JW kids would proudly salute the flag given any "choice"
