    I think people are just a little too uptight. Most controversial issues are about trivial things IMHO.
    I agree with you on that prelude this should have never even been an issue its just two words and benny that wasn't directed at you i just don't think it violates the constition at all which was written by people that belived in God. Our country was founded on the belief in God and thats just how it is.
    Woop?

    I totally agree. A lot of the time controversial issues only arise because people are so pedantic.

    Simply not true. Most of our "founding fathers" were not even Christian.

    .... if you have rational arguments for why we should scrap the Monarchy i would be happy to hear them though it seems out of context here. Why should the coordinates we are born on restrict what we can form opinions on?


    Plus you must realise that countries are not completely cut off from each other, they interact, what happens in one country has influence on other countries (though it may be long term rather than short term influence).

    Hmm I don't see prog-bman mentioning Christian I do believe they were all believers in God even though they weren't Christians.

    You don't think it violates the Constitution? Remember that whole establishment clause thing?

    The Pledge didn't originally have this in it, and our money didn't originally have "In God We Trust" on it. They were added to differentiate us from those Godless Commies. Sorry guys, the Cold War's done. It's time to get this out.

    You missed my point, but you're right.

    We were always forced to say the pledge when I was in school.
