The homosexual community doesn’t just want their rights, they want everyone to accept and approve of their lifestyle. It seems atheists have taken the same tactic with the pledge of allegiance, among other things, demanding it be removed from public schools. Even though they are not required to say the pledge, they believe it is an infringement of their rights and want it completely removed. The pledge of Allegiance has been our national pledge, uniting Americans for many years, but atheists seem more interested in in getting their way. They, much like homosexuals, appear to demand tolerance from everyone for their lifestyle without being willing to give much.
Andrew Beckwith of the Massachusetts Family Institute said this about the situation: “The Pledge of Allegiance shouldn’t be banned merely because someone who is not even required to recite it feels offended…The pledge unites Americans. The court should uphold the lower court’s ruling and refuse to divide Americans by silencing a voluntary exercise of patriotism just because a few people don’t like it.” Click here for original article.
