When you're cured of your mentally ill creationist cult of no proof, you will look back on this and laugh.

What can a creationist with no proof of god do, other than laugh when caught out, lying about a god he knows isn't real?

Hedonist's post, post 17, is the best on this thread. It shows how christards can mess up anything if you give them the power.

I'll take your word for it, Tinky.

The Pledge of Allegiance.
I really do not want to make anyone angered but.
Maybe in its original form that was written it would be less offensive to some.
In its original form it read:
"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1923, "the Flag of the United States of America" had been added.
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1954, President Eisenhower petition Congress to insert the words "under God," hence the pledge we have today.
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.
Not all believe in the same god. Not all have the same beliefs.
One of the reasons for this great nation is the freedom of religion and ones right to not be religious.
As one that does not believe in a god or gods, The Pledge of Allegiance may not offend me, but it is misleading about want our nation was founded on.
It was a pretty good pledge, until the godbots got ahold of it.... meh.

I really don't care one way or the other, it doesn't affect me in any regard, it's just a saying we say. Nothing more, nothing less.
