    ACTON (CBS) – The Pledge of Allegiance is becoming a sore subject in the Acton-Boxborough school district, all because of the words “under God.”

    “Atheists and Humanists do not accept the notion of God,” says attorney David Niose.

    An Acton family, who is atheist and chooses to remain anonymous, is suing the school district claiming they are discriminating against their children during the pledge. They want the words “under God” taken out

    At any given time, there are countless people who are trying to get "under God" removed from the pledge. My mother is one of those people.

    I personally don't give a shit.

    And Jehovah Witnesses refuse to "pledge allegiance" to anything/anyone other than God.

    You know what they do about The Pledge in schools????



    THEY DON'T SAY IT.


    They don't tie up our courts with frivolous bullshit to stop other people from saying it.
    :cool:

    Words matter. Those words "under god" were placed there to divide us, and replaced "indivisible," which included everyone as a citizen and stakeholder, uniting everyone.

    Whose religious freedoms are being trampled on by The Pledge?

    Who is being forced, by rule of law, to say it?
