How many times did you recite, at the request of the teacher, in Spanish, "My car is brown" or some other such insignificant sentence when you either didn't have a car or if you did, it was another color? Did it matter? Does it matter? No.
Pledging allegiance to your country is not an insignificant event......So, following my earlier question-if you took the class and they required you to perform a marriage ceremony with a man, would you do it?

The Magna Carta was about a king granted limited freedoms to the common man. It doesn't have anything to do with pledging allegiance to a foreign government. So I fail to see it's relevance.......

I think the hardliners need to realize that you do not relinquish your American citizenship by simply reciting another country's pledge of allegiance - regardless of the analogies. Playing a gay man in a school play does not make you gay. Attending a jazz club does not make you a jazz aficionado. Reciting the Mexican Pledge does not make you a Mexican.

I studied and read Hitler's "mein kamph" in history, does that make me an Nazi?

<quoted text>Billy, you and I both know they would NEVER do that. Now you're just making stuff up to push through one of your feeble earlier points. I agree, you are good at making stuff up though.
So, does that mean you wouldn't do it?

Only if you pledged allegiance to Adolf Hitler.

As for liver spots,,darlin..don't have any, but you would know,,, take a closer look, and I know you can see your reflection in Dixie's dog dish,,but not very good focus, or true light.
And that is not what you said to me in the emails..lol!
Have a good day Milly....sounds like you could use one. I love to bug you,, as you rise to the occasion so well, betting it is the only rise you get!!!!
No liver spots?

Ahhh...finally proving my point - she was not asked to pledge allegiance to the Mexican flag - she was asked to recite the Mexican pledge - to which she refused.

Thanks Billy!!!

I took my Algebra final in my freshman year with a 102 temperature. I didn't do so well. I talked my professor into giving me a re-test. It's called a blessing - and it almost never happens in school. It's not the student's role to propose anything in school. Had the professor not allowed me a retake, I would've had to take the course again - at my cost.
Besides - what makes this girl any different from the rest of the kids in her class?
The difference is that she has a backbone and is not intimidated by an authority figure into doing something that she finds morally repugnant, as is her right in this country, and as codified by her school district policy.

You never swear allegiance to a flag, you always swear allegiance to a country. After all, the flag may change (what if we get another state). Oddly enough, the students were also forced to give a Nazi style salute to the flag... http://www.metatube.com/en/videos/79649/Mexic...

That's not what I would call backbone - anybody can take up a law suit nowadays. Again, reciting another country's pledge does not a traitor make. I question her resolve in contuinuing her education. There's a HUGE difference between doing your own thing in everyday life and then doing your own thing in school. School is much more structured than real life - if it weren't, you'd be hard pressed to find anybody that would want to teach.

Thats weaseling out of the question. What if a course required to perform a wedding ceremony with a man. Would you do it?

Again, don't put words in my mouth, Billy. I never said the word "swear." Pledge and swear are synonyms. "I pledge allegiance, to the Flag, of the United States of America..."

Well, if they gave a Nazi salute to the Mexican flag, then I wouldn't necessarilly condone their Spanish teacher, but I would fire the history teacher.

Oddly, indeed...

Much the same way the United States flag is saluted:

How to salute the Mexican flag:
Much the same way the United States flag is saluted:

Those in uniform give the appropriate formal salute. Members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute.

Citizens not in uniform salute by placing their right hand over the heart and men with head cover should remove it and hold it to left shoulder, hand over the heart.

Members of uniformed organizations in formation salute upon command of the person in charge.

And it is respectful to do the same if in the presence of the playing of another country's pledge, even if you are not a citizen.
