    People who are saying the child's parents pushed him into this need to stfu and look at the video.

    The kid is more well-spoken than his father. Sure, his mother hasn't been in the limelight, but you can easily tell by his father's reactions that the kid acted on his own. Also: Look at his badass shirt. Nerds 2(squared) ever

    It is only about understanding that the flag represents the policy of the country.

    I wonder what the parents gave the kid to make such a spectacle of himself. An Xbox360? PS3?

    I'm serious. When I was in school, there were many times I didn't recite the pledge of allegiance. It was no big deal. What makes this such a big deal? The media coverage.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Hmm, a ten year old is refusing to endorse democracy because of his knowledge of homosexuality, were's the social services?

    I mean bloudy hell, is the majority that wiped? Besides, its not within the power of the state to legislate that people of the same sex can "marry", unless they want to change the entire meaning of the word and infact rob it of all meaning what so ever, the kid might as well be saying that he cant endorse democracy because men dont have vaginas, not everyone has red hair or can change their skin colour at will.

    Uniform treatment isnt equality, neither will the right to "marry" satisfy those whose identity is premised upon agitation or requires it for reinforcement, reaffirmation or validation. The gay movement and its fellow travellers have moved beyond this even to attempting to attack "heteronormative" society altogether, which is an active suggestion that heterosexuality is not normal.

    I'm waiting for the day someone, anyone, simply says "stop and cut that shit out". Now that would be worth reporting.

    what democracy?

    We call it agitprop - agitation/propaganda.

    And this agitprop worked - it gained attention and it was plausible.

    And the price of this agitprop was a ten year old boy used by adults.

    Propaganda which is a singular instance against a regime of repetition?

    Pure assumption.

    I'm not sure this endeavor is very notable. It's just some kid, who isn't required to provide evidence for his beliefs, doesn't have a background to be consistent in contrast to, making some stand against some social exercise, that really doesn't change anything. His statements are kind of normal for that side of the argument, and due to coverage are comparable to yelling the same rhetoric as expressed in the past to win an argument.
    Cool, he made it on the news, now people can be emotional about it because it's a kid. I'm glad people aren't easily manipulated by their emotions.
    Everyone is a case study.
