What do you think about the debate over including “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance?
Asked at the post office at Seventh and Vermont streets on September 14, 2002
“We say the pledge of allegiance every morning at Kennedy Elementary. It should stay. If someone doesn’t want to say it, they don’t have to.”
“I don’t think it should be in there. I feel like it’s saying God is looking out just for the U.S., and I don’t think God plays favorites.”
“That’s up to individual religious preference. It’s not in the Constitution to have God in the allegiance that’s one of our freedoms. That’s why people come to this country.”
“I’d say that this country was founded on Christian beliefs, all the founders were Christian. If you don’t want to say it, you don’t have to.”
