Keep your belief in a mythical father figure in the sky to yourselves, it's getting in the way of the facts.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America... and to the republic for which it stands: one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Of course it should be allowed.

Yes, It should be allowed. For the ones who dont believe in prayer at school, dont pray but dont stop the people who want prayer. We also have an equal right to do, even if you dont want to.

Hell if people can bash Religion in Public Schools, why not let people pray in Public Schools. Since when did Freedom of Speech end on Public Property. Freedom of Speech ends on Private Property. Schools are not Gulags for Religious kids.

Why not ban saying fuccck. Oh! That's free speech. Sorry.

Spreading the lies of religion is antithetical to education and does not belong in the educational system. Teach your lies at Sunday school.

The God verse was added in the 1960's the original pledge was written by an Atheist.

And just how is praying, "the spreading of lies"? Prayers are requests. If there is no higher power to hear these requests, so what? A request can never become a lie.

"under God" was officially inserted in 1954, although it was used well before then.

The original pledge of allegiance was written by a Baptist minister, Francis Bellamy, in 1892.

Please explain to me why the right wing loves the God line and ignores "with liberty and justice for all."

One cannot explain that which does not exist. Explain how you arrived at this notion. Concrete data, please.

The muslims will bring their matresses to school and kneel down on the matress face toward the Mecca and pray 3 times a day.

They also do that in universities too. Some universities have to build special prayers'rooms for them and you also see them with their feet on the lavatories. They have to clean their feet before praying.

Easy, many right wingers believe that I should not be able to enter into a government recognized contract of the person of my choosing because of their gender (and mine). And that does not sound like justice or liberty to me.

The restriction you mention is not based on "right winger" beliefs, it is based on the legal definition of "marriage". Additionally, marriage is a state issue, not a federal issue. Oh, well. It's off-topic anyway.

We are apostolic and my son attends a public school, I think he should be aloud to pray over his food before he eats it. we practice this at home and he continue it at school. but I think ppl shouldnt be forced to pray if thats not what they beleve in. but for the ones who dont think one little prayer will hurt anyone.
