You will have to try again as this post didn't make sense.
Your inability to understand English is not surprising, even though you attempted to claim that 'God' is 'Allah' in English, and garbled the hell out of it.

So, by this reasoning, it would be fine with you if we began to require schoolchildren to recite a pledge with the phrase "One nation under Allah," since it's just two different names for the same 'god'.

But no, you want to claim that 'Allah' isn't an English word.
So, how about we change the Pledge of Allegiance to read "One nation under the Flying Spaghetti Monster."

Those are English words...is that the same god you worship?

I understand English just fine. I don't understand you. Cpeter asked me the same question without all the double talk and I said calling God Allah is fine with me but wouldn't make much sense since the pledge is in English recited by English speaking people.

I call Him God. My Spanish husband calls Him Dios. Guess what, He is the same God regardless of the language.

Too many girls/women are PRESSURED into having children by family members and/or religious community, and purposely aren't told just how very HARD motherhood is until AFTER they have had a baby. I think it is high time that changed. Some of the hardships mothers of all ages will face once a baby arrives include -- but are not limited to -- the following:

HARDSHIP #1: LOSS OF FREEDOM - Having a baby really does change everything, including the freedom that girls and women used to have in abundance. Once the baby arrives, that freedom will be gone, for at least the next five or six years and possibly longer. Teen girls and young women who become moms can forget about going out with friends, whether to the movies, to hang out at their favorite restaurant or coffee shop, or anywhere else for that matter. If they do go out, they’ll have to take the baby with them if their parents refuse to babysit. If the baby is sick or very cranky for any number of reasons, girls will end up staying home instead of going out. Girls who are still in middle or high school will find it much harder to do their homework assignments or study for exams when they have to care for a baby as well. It will be a very long time before women/girls get any of their former freedom back.

HARDSHIP #2: LOSS OF SLEEP - The first thing girls and women have to know about motherhood is that newborn babies do NOT sleep eight hours a night. All mothers, myself included, can honestly say that babies can – and do – wake up during the night as many as two or three times. Each time the baby wakes up, mom has to get up with the baby, feed the baby, change the baby’s diaper (which could be a messy one), and then get the baby back to sleep. When my son was a newborn baby, there were nights where I got NO sleep whatsoever. Luckily for me, I had completed high school and post-high school education long before that, so I didn’t have to get up at 5:00am to go to school after having almost no sleep. Those who are teen moms will not be so lucky.

HARDSHIP #3: LOSS OF MONEY - Whatever money a girl/woman used to spend on herself will have to be spent on the baby, and that cost is far more than most girls could begin to anticipate. These costs include diapers, food, clothing, baby equipment (car seat, crib, stroller, baby carriers, baby and child toys, etc.) and so much more. Anyone who wants to do the math can begin their research now, by going to their local grocery store and checking out the baby food and diaper sections. Just make sure you have a notebook and calculator, because you will need to multiply those costs for each item several times per week. That’s just for food and diapers, you haven’t even started on the costs for clothing, baby equipment and toys. That will add a staggering amount to your calculations, and the sum will be far higher than you could imagine. If you plan to put the baby in day care for any amount of time during the week, you will have to add up those costs too. Get the picture now? Having a baby costs a HUGE amount of money, which many girls and young women simply do not have, unless they have wealthy parents.

KATIE AND PLAYA,.
I tried answering this,whole con piracy thing yesterday.

Had some surgery and pain makes me cranky and I do not wish to be testy when posting. SO to write calmly and not be rude

.
Yes there were people who want things changed..there have always been
Some of them most people like me ignore because they are out there. Way far.

And I don't give money fir anyone's politics.

When I looked up Religious Right as someone asked..got it ..But even wiki and one of the supposed leaders says we have lost out on our values.
For this huge so called theocracy conspiracy ...They are nit very good at it as far as I can tell.

Obtaining give money to political drug or groups. If I can to CHARITY

AND YES KATIE I read both parts of your post ..only answers the last..And no answer but any way will do AGSIN in more detail ..And please read some links

Now in the sixties was,a,far out proposal to change the US,..written by as an idea. We should have taken more notice as it is obvious from our last 4O years ..well longer..They are the ones pervading the schools. CREATING a country more and more dependant..And fir about a decade the spearhead is one multimillionaire who has given us the idea that Daddy Fed should provide for everything while he uses his money all over destabilizing where he chooses...his tax exempt orgs push people and policies that frankly will bankrupt us..

It's nit just him ..it is just his money. And this power broker he has brought to fruition these notions that have pushed our politics fir decades.

One man behind the scenes moving pieces..And half the country being sold a bill of goods,through the media,and schools ..But many politicians realizing their dreams..see I don't get the very rich telling us working people we need to pay more..And encouraging a welfare system which gives just enough yo secure votes..But keep the people voting fir more goodies.

You can laugh at the idea dubbed trickle down..And frankly very little if it git to me.

But a richer man or company can employ more people.

My hubby lost his job ..We had to let the guy who cuts our lawn go..He has kids he supports..told me we weren't the only ones..

He in turn may not buy a new mower..les business fir the mower store.

The government cannot hire everyone ..not continue indefinitely to go g e out money.

People like my hubby eith no job on a fixed income pay LESS taxes..the lawn guy makes less he pays less too.

If you sell say books ...glasses..you wind up with less business when people have less money..they don't replace things either..just make do.
And giving t o worthwhile charities..firget that's,last on the list if you have little money

It's called belt tightening and we all do it..Washington does not..where did all the outrage on the deficit go..It's at least tripled

Socialism does,nit work as an economy ..

Ok done with the speech .

FOUND A FEW LINKS. Just in case anyone wants to look at this,stuff from the other side.

Frankly we do best when C congress and the White house are not in lock step..but hey that is just imo

HARDSHIP #4: LOSS OF EDUCATION AND JOB/CAREER OPPORTUNITIES – As hard as it is to acknowledge, a working mother of any age cannot have the same kind of freedom, flexibility or mobility as a woman without children has. If a girl cannot complete high school due to the demands of motherhood, she will not be able to go to college or vocational school, as both typically require a high school diploma first. That automatically limits her ability to find good employment, and she may well have to settle for a minimum wage job, which pays far less than what is needed to raise a child comfortably. Girls and women who complete high school may find that many jobs require a college degree or vocational school certificate, and without those, she may still not be able to get a job that pays a decent salary. A high school diploma alone is no guarantee of good employment, but all girls need one if they hope to advance to higher levels of education that their chosen job or career requires.

HARDSHIP #5: LOSS OF MOBILITY – Those who don’t have children have a rather naďve idea that parents can just as easily take a baby with them whenever they go out. They are half right. Yes, parents can take a baby out with them, but it is far from easy. Even going to the grocery store with a baby can be a huge hassle. First they have to get the baby dressed, which can be difficult when the little one is happy being home and doesn’t want to be dressed to go out. After getting baby dressed, which can take much longer than mom expected, mom then has to put baby into the car seat, get baby out of the car seat when she arrives at the store, then carry baby around until she can find a cart with an infant carrier. Most grocery stores have very few of those, as I personally discovered long ago. Some may not have any. Going to a restaurant with a baby can also be very stressful, especially if baby suddenly begins crying or screaming for unknown reasons. Mothers who walk into restaurants with screaming or crying babies will find themselves the object of hostile stares, which usually last until they finally have to leave.

HARDSHIP #6: LOSS OF PRIVATE TIME – When a baby arrives, a mom will quickly find that she doesn’t have privacy any more. If she used to read books for hours with few or no interruptions, that will no longer be an option for her. If she is a teen mom who needs quiet time to complete her homework assignments or study for important final exams, that won’t be possible either. A baby will demand her attention many times during the day, so she won’t have private time for doing the things she enjoys or needs to complete.

HARDSHIP #7: DEALING WITH COLIC – For girls/women who are unaware, colic is a long period of crying, screaming and shrieking that can last for many hours a day, and even all night. It can begin when the baby is as young as three weeks old, and it can go on until the baby is five months old. My son had colic for almost two months as an infant. For me, it seemed more like two years. During that time, the crying usually began in the early evening and would last until past midnight. I would walk around the small apartment, carrying him in my arms, for hours trying to comfort him, but nothing I did really worked. He wouldn’t eat, and he most certainly didn’t sleep, and I was a wreck as a result. Being deprived of sleep, with a colicky baby on top of that, can really feel like torture for a mom after a while. I was no exception.

There is no escaping the fact that becoming a mother makes a girl’s/woman's life much HARDER and she loses most, if not all, of the benefits and comforts she had before she got pregnant.

Girls and young women who have no children now need to know about these hardships long before a pregnancy ever happens, so they can PREVENT unwanted pregnancy to the best of their ability. If some girls/women decide they never want to struggle with the hardships of motherhood, that is fine too. The choice for a woman to be childfree is just as valid and respectable as the choice to be a mother.

Yeah, and the right to be free FROM religions and gods has ALSO been part of the United States of America.

So YOU will also have to continue to be offended...like when someone like me criticizes or insults religion in general and YOUR religion in particular. Don't like it? Too bad.

I'm not offended. When a person like yourself has only one talent [criticizing] I have to understand that you are only doing what you know how to do. Mother Theresa said--" You do what you know and when you know better, you do better."
