My mother sometimes. *shakes head* She sends me one of those stupid chain letter things...this one about the flag. It states "if you agree, pass it on... one nation UNDER GOD..."
Point in fact, no, I don't agree. First, that was *not* part of the original pledge. I'll pledge to my country, but why on earth would I pledge to a God I don't understand or follow? Technically, I know I can insert *any* God there, but that's not the point. We all know its not written for that. While it doesn't bother me to the point of protesting it with large groups of people or whatever, it bothers me that my mother, who is aware that I am, in fact, very much *not* Christian sends this to me.
Isn't there an idea of seperation of church and state somewhere in our consitution? I know my history is a bit fuzzy....but...

my mom seems to recognize that I don't necessarily follow what she believes yet she sent me the same thing. I'm not offended by it as as much as she respects what I think I respect what she thinks. And being that I was raised that way with her, I just shrug it off and think well at least she cares. I didnt forward it on, mind you, but at least I know my mom cares for something. *smiles* but you're right, it's not the nation to tell us what to believe.
