Pledge of Allegiance

It's all one God

I just wanted to tell everyone here that actually, the Christian God is basically the same God that Jews and Muslims believe in. So, there are probably Jews and Muslims out there who are all for the 'Under God' in the pledge. I don't think it matters that much whether or not people in the USA believe in God, but more that the first ammendment is about separation of church and state, and unless we change that, having all of these references to God doesn't seem right. I personally think it should be taken out, and I definately don't think one should be required to say the pledge of allegiance anyway, because if your being forced to promise something than it's not really a promise, or is it? But that is something totally different.

I plegde allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation UNDER CANADA, Indivisible, With liberty and justice for all.
