BOULDER, Colo. — About 50 Boulder High School students walked out of class Thursday to protest the daily reading of the Pledge of Allegiance and recited their own version, omitting "one nation, under God."Hmmm... guess they still are not teaching logic and civics in public education. Anyone with half a brain knows that there is no such thing as "separation of church and state". And, if they don't like the fact that our nation honors "god" in our pledge to the country, then they can either just not say the words or leave the country. I hear Cuba, Venezuela or Iran is nice this time of the year.
The students say the phrase violates the constitutional separation of church and state.
They also say the daily reading of the pledge over the school public address system at the start of the second class takes away from education time and is ignored or mocked by some students.
hahahahaa.. saying of the pledge takes away from "education time". Yeah, as if these kids really care about the time spent getting an education. It is obvious that they are not even GETTING an education if they think our Constitution says there should be no mention of "god" of any form. Well, I am sure that some of their teachers are mocked, but does that give these crap-for-brains the right to walk out of their classes? I wonder how they would feel if they were forced to pray to the east 5 times a day and pledge their souls to Mohammed. Would the girls feel ok with having to wear a burqua and head covering as well as the huge one-piece over the body covering?
The protesting students, members of the Student Worker Club, want administrators to hold the pledge reading in the auditorium during each of the school's two lunch periods...Now it becomes clearer. These kids are communists. No wonder they are ok with giving a pledge in an auditorium as people stand up before eating their meals. Seig Hiel.
"Boulder High has a highly diverse population, not all of whom believe in God, or one God," said Emma Martens, a senior and president of the club, which has about a dozen members.Dozen members huh?? Come back to us when you have a few hundred. Then we will start to listen. And, if you believe in more than one god, then what is your problem believing that your god(s) had a hand in forming this nation? If not, then you are in the wrong nation. Leave this nation to the Judeo-Christian GOD who is GOD above all others. The one true GOD.
"We didn't think it was fair for the whole school to have to listen to it. It's almost religious oppression," she said.So, now it is a matter of being forced to listen? Forgive me, but wouldn't you also be forced to listen if the pledge was recited in the auditorium while you are eating lunch?? And please explain how this is "religious oppression"? Religious oppression would be if the school prevented the saying of the pledge due to its mention of god. Also, your little commy student group would not exist because you believe in god(s). You would be oppressed from expressing your religious beliefs - hmmm sounds an awful lot like what you are doing to the rest of the school's majority and their saying of the official pledge of allegiance for USA.
Get a life and more importantly.. get an education!!
