I wonder if people would still be as adament?

What if, instead of under God, the pledge said something like Under Isis, or Oden, or Zeus. Do you think people would be so adament to keep it there? Or, would there be protests and complaining to get it changed/removed?

  • Or one nation under the sun? lol... that is not really a person so to speak. I do see your point though.

  • There would be protests. God is not a specific term, but those are the names OF gods... so "under god" really fits a lot of different bills, and certainly isn't offensive to the 80% of Americans who identify themselves as Christian.

  • What about, "all Gods" I think that would make everyone happy- still religious, but all inclusive.

  • I would love that! lol

    I actually think it should say : One Nation Under the Creator / In the Creator we Trust

    Then you can apply your own creator...although theoretically if people would stop being so intent on causing strife in the world; they could just apply their own 'god' too...

  • only because it's history, tradition... it's how it was back then when the country was founded, so you kinda have to respect that.

    "in god we trust" was added to the money in the 1950's

  • If I went to a country which was established on, say, muslim principals, and the founding fathers saw fit to say "One Nation Under Muhammed" I would accept it and simply leave that line out.

    No it isn't. The pledge has been changed several times and under god was added in the 1950's.

  • what if it said one nation on earth. under the o-zone...........i say it doesnt matter really, the next generation is going to forget it anyhow. they dont even have my sons school say the pledge anymore regularly. only on special occasions. seriously. but at the same time, while i appreciate the life im able to make for myself in this free country of ours, to say our forefathers were honest, godfaring people, kinda makes me angry at the hypocracy of it all. we stole this nation we call "ours" from millions of people who were already here, and brought africans over to do all our work for us. not a religion i want to be a part of anyhow, in reality. i dont consider those christian acts at all, and definetly not what jesus would do, dontcha think? hate what i say if oyu want, i really dont care, i have my opinion and im proud!
