That said, I am glad that they are looking into this "under God" business in the pledge of allegiance. These 2 words unduly influence my children and, in my opinion, perpetuate a myth which it will be hard for them and others to disengage from. Not to mention how it discourages other spiritual possibilites. I, for one, believe that man created god and not the other way around. Who's to say that I'm wrong?
Get religion and 'God' out of government and out of our schools unless it's to have an all-inclusive discussion about many of the spiritual philosophies. I am all for that! Don't shove your mass unproven/unproveable beliefs down my nor my children's throats.
I want my children to think and explore and dive and deduce, thank you very much.
Gaahh, this irks me.
