Con

I don't think it should stay because that puts down every religion that is not monotheistic, and America is a free country. Some people say that if it is removed, that will offend all monotheistic people, and even though 80% of our country is Christian, that is no reason to offend everyone else. If you sent your kids to school saying something besides that, that wasnt part of your religion, would you be okay with it? Like one nation under Allah? Under Jesus? Under zeus? It honestly should never have been put in.

Pro

The words "under God" should be in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Just wish I could of come earlier. I feel neither side could of won due to factors outside of our control. Plus religion is a man made concept, and has no base in any debate, plus religion does not exist in the original Hebrew Tongue, plus a small amount of what is being said is nothing but an illusion.

Forfeit. Just an opening argument, has failed to continue on to the second round, no victory for the [con] person.

Considering the fact that we have 5 rounds, I didn't want to barrage all my facts onto my opponent at once.
