Ok, here's another one that i am sure is going to upset people.....

The Pledge of Alligence (sp?) says "One nation under God" but where does it say which god it is referring to? Couldn't that one phrase apply to more then one god?

  • Well for one the "God" part was added in the 40's I believe... ( don't quote me on it) and as for which God... it doesn't say... but is assumed it's the Christian version of God... now we can change that and either take God back out or just simply add "Goddess" to it... (which by the way when saying it I do say...)

  • Yes, although the people who wrote the pledge of allegiance likely didn't imagine how many religions would eventually be saying the pledge of allegiance.

  • the actual pledge says no such thing. that's the bastardized version, and it stil doesn't represent all Americans when the phrase 'under god' is included.

  • I'm pretty sure it means God, God.. the regular one. That all presidents worship, and most people were thought to.

    In many instances other gods are capitialized when refered to simply as "God".

    This is basically what I would have said.
