A 10 year old boy from Arkansas has refused to say the Pledge Of Allegiance till gays have equality. Growing Up I had to say the bullshit pledge every day from gradeschool. High School was a different story. It goesa little something like this:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands: one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
So if you think about it forcing kids whom prey to Allah, Krisna and the Easter Bunny may find them self in a bit of a pickle.
This was first challenged by those Jehovah's Witnesses, you know the ones that sell or give you WatchTower and refuse to leave your door step. So when I was a kid you were punished for not saying the pladge of allegiance. So little Will Phillips believes that Gays and Lesbians are denied basic rights such as marriage and adoption and doesn't think this sounds fair after pledging, with liberty and justice for all. I say right on!
Francis Bellamy wrote this pledge to show kids obedience to the state as a virtue. So does this mean that Mr. Bellamy never grew up a poor black child in the ghetto or any other culture for that matter? Bellamy believed that the pledge was takenout of context and was growing ore in line with Socialism, which was not his intention and was more inconsistent. I have always thought that the pledge was bullshit and was sent to the principles office in high school cause I said I was athiest and didn't believe in a god so how can I pledge. Truth is I was just thought it stupid. My principle said to just "lip the words then" and sent me on my way. I never did. I have pledged to a great big cock though. Yes. many a time I have dropped to my knees and prayed let me take it all in enjoy this.
There has been great debate about the pledge and some districts have stated that it is unlawful to force anyone to recite the pledge. It also violates first and fourteenth ammendment rights.
