I support removing the phrase "under god" from the Pledge. This phrase was not in the pledge of allegiance as originally written by a Methodist minister. It originally read "one nation, indivisible..." The "under god" was added by Dwight Eisenhower during the height of McCarthyism so we would not be godless commies. This is not, has never been "one nation under god" First of all, which "god" are we under? Allah? Yahweh? Jehoveh? How about Buddha? And which version...Catholic? Methodist? Baptist? Mormon? Muslim? Buddhist? My pledging allegiance to one nation under god are we then forced to believe in a god? I'm an agnostic, and I know several people who are Atheists...Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and James Madison were all Deists...would be they be expelled today? We are not "one nation under god" we are "one nation" so let's pledge to be something we are and instead of something we should not be.
