"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." --- Pledge of Allegiance to the Republic of the United States of America
There are those who want to alter the Pledge of Allegiance which we citizens recite from time to time in public settings.
In recent years the controversy has focused on one tiny part of the pledge that contains the words, "under God." In the poverty stricken minds of some, the reference to God is highly offensive. Such reference breaks down the imagined "wall" which is supposed to exist between church and state.
Perhaps such a change should be made with God's name being removed and a few words added, but not because of the shallow "separation of church and state" issue, but for a much greater and extremely critical matter.
This change would then have the final statement of the Pledge of Allegiance saying, "...one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all citizens except for millions yet unborn whom we choose to execute!"
"Outrageous!" "Preposterous!" "Insane!" "How dare you even suggest such a thing!" "You are a candidate for a padded cell!"
Now, now -- let's be reasonable about this and think it through!
Would not such a change more accurately reflect what we as a republic have actually become? Certainly the evidence is overwhelming that we are no longer under the favor and blessing of Almighty God -- our idolatrous, immoral and defiant practices as a nation of 300 million clearly attest to that!
Further, the phrase would boldly advertise to the other nations of this chaotic world that we no longer are civilized but have regressed to a state of savage barbarism!
Yes, there was a time when it was considered a criminal act to destroy the life of an unborn American citizen, but that time ended over 35 years ago -- and we have explicitly established a record that makes the Nazi Holocaust appear as a child's Sunday School picnic by way of comparison! At this point in time the U.S. version of Holocaust outnumbers the Nazi version by more than three to one!
Want to write to your congressman or congresswoman and suggest that the Pledge of Allegiance be changed citing a rock solid reason why such a change should be made?

"And it shall be, when you show this people all these words, and they say to you, 'Why has the LORD pronounced all this great disaster against us? Or what is our iniquity? Or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?' "then you shall say to them, 'Because your fathers have forsaken Me,' says the LORD; 'they have walked after other gods and have served them and worshiped them, and have forsaken Me and not kept My law. And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, each one walks according to the imagination of his own evil heart, so that no one listens to Me.'" --- Jeremiah 16:10-12
