Should Rick and Carly Have “God Bless America” On Their Pledge?
Yes or No... on Rick and Carly adding "God Bless America" to the end of their pledge of allegiance every morning?
Each morning just after 8, Rick and Carly have Elementary School kids from here in the Treasure Valley do the pledge of allegiance on WOW 104.3. There's one extra phrase Rick and Carly have the kids say at the very end of the pledge. That phrase is... "God Bless America"
Lately schools have been asking us to take out the "God Bless America." They're afraid of who it might offend. We simply want to know your thoughts on this. We never get too political or religious here on WOW 104.3 and no judgement will be passed. We simply want some opinions as we move forward.
One note... God is actually mentioned in the pledge of allegiance. Here's the words...
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.
