These words are my diary screaming out loud

Ponder this...

Can someone please explain to me how the hell the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE could be UNCONSTITUTIONAL????

A federal court in Sacramento has claimed that the Pledge of Allegiance, because it says "Under God," is like a prayer, and therefore unconstitutional. Come on now... The Pledge of Allegiance is one of the first ways that children are introduced to patriotism, and if we get rid of that in schools, how are we ever going to teach our children patriotism??

This really upsets me. What is this world coming to? I can guarantee you that when the founding fathers came up with the idea that there should be a separation of church and state, they did NOT mean that we would not recognize our flag and the principles on which our country came to be. Because, even though our country is religiously free and our government does not have an established religion, and as much as some people may not like it, this country was founded as one nation, under God. If you don't want to say God, say Allah or Jehovah or whatever else you may call Him, or say nothing at all. But don't tell me that MY kids, when I have them someday, can't say the Pledge of Allegiance at school.

End rant.
