One nation under god
I agree with all the people that say that we atheists are too sensitive to the word "god." However, the pledge of allegiance really bugs me. It's not so much the mere use of the word, it's the arrogance of using the word "one" before it. On a different point, I don't see at all why we should be taught to promise loyalty to our country at the age of 5 or 6, when we don't really know what we're saying. Now, we could go on and on about it, but this country has more pressing problems than the word "god."
Apologies for this terrible, incoherent post that I wrote at midnight last night. It would be great if someone could write a post right after this one so it doesn't take up room at the top of the page for too long.
