The Pledge

Alonzo Fyfe over at The Atheist Ethicist has a very interesting post up about the Pledge of Allegiance.

In this post, he illustrates the problem created by the phrase “under gawd” that was added to the pledge in 1954.

In Alonzo’s story, a student is protesting the recitation of the pledge because Congress has changed the wording to add “white nation”.

It makes a rather good point, I feel.

Much like Jane Elliott, the teacher who taught about racism by having the blue eyed kids treat the brown eyed kids as second class citizens.
