    ... Until there is truly equality in America.

    Ten-year-old refuses to recite pledge until gays allowed to marry | Raw Story

    Ten-year-old Will Phillips may have just become the new cause cÚlŔbre of the gay rights movement.

    It all started when he refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance in a West Fork, Arkansas elementary school.

    Speaking to CNN's John Roberts on Monday, Will said he remained seated four straight days while his classmates repeated the words, "with liberty and justice for all."

    "I was analyzing the meanings of it, because I want to be a lawyer," he said. "... There isn't really liberty and justice for all. There's ... Gays and lesbians can't marry. There's still a lot of racism and sexism in the world. Yeah."

    Eventually, the substitute teacher started giving Will "grief" over his refusal to repeat the words.

    Yep, I thought that too.

    The pledge is to pursue an ideal rather than agree with the current reality though. In a way, by saying it people would be pledging to uphold these things he believed the government wasn't. Still I like his attitude.

    Nice!

    I love seeing the little ones get their feet into the game, early!

    It makes my heart go pitter-patter.

    Ma'am, with all due respect, you can go jump off a bridge!

    I thought Americans didn't salute the flag anymore because it looks too much like a Nazi salute.

    I still will salute the flag, but it's nice to see a young person thinking for himself.
