Ahh I understand now, so pledging allegiance to a particular god and a piece of fabric not worship?
And one doesn't pledge allegiance to a God, Skanque.
If you WANT to pledge- it isn't required- one pledges allegiance to the country.
I guess the syphilis has gone straight to the brain, eh?
better than over in the UK, where you pledge to the Queen...
And where you have a state religion.
And where collective worship is required by LAW.
