    Hmm....are they defensible? Probably not. However, I'm an atheist (with a fair amount of dislike for religon as well), and I don't really see it as something that matters much. Not worth a battle (and pissing off lots of people) to have a couple words removed.

    I have mixed thoughts/feelings on the subject and the above is one of them. Honestly, is money not the god of America?

    I don't really mind the God references in the Pledge or on currency, but I don't take them particularly seriously. I mean, it would be a mild inconvenience to leave out the 'under God' in the pledge, but otherwise? Meh.

    I would prefer that historic buildings/monuments, etc not be defaced by removing all religious references, but I don't favor putting up new public monuments, etc that contain religious references. I don't think religious freedom should stop at the door of a government institution, but neither should religious expression be state sponsored.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    As of now, we have more important things to worry about, like world poverty and AIDS. Eventually, though, it would be a good thing to discuss and make a decision about. For the moment, though, why not just leave out the "under god" part of the Pledge whenever you must say it?

    I kind of disagree with it, because we aren't a theocracy (and hopefully we never will be), but for right now, the debate isn't really high on our nation's list of priorities.

    That's really funny. Proud to be a capitalist!

    I absolutely agree with that. That's why we need to have civilized discussion about these things! They aren't issues of right and wrong! Political problems are multidimensional, whether the pundits admit it or not.
