The founders of this country left great Britain TOO ESCAPE the catholic government and the persecution they brought with them. None of the founding fathers were religious. The words under god weren't added until over a century later. This is only one more way children are subtly indoctrinated into religion.
Under God should be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. It provokes and endorses religion on children. Children should have the right to choose weather or not they believe in God. Also, Not every family believes in God. Furthermore, their should be a seperation of church in state and there is not in the US.
The nation that we live in today is not a secular nation. It is a Godly based nation and through time we started getting rid of God. The founding fathers had written what they felt was right. If there was a problem about it then. Why do we have a problem with it now?
The Words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance do not Improperly Endorse Religion. The Pledge of Allegiance was meant to honor our country, the flag, and our founders. The founding fathers based our constitution and our entire way of life on the belief that God is watching over us. The pledge simply states this without endorsing anything.
