Under God wasn't added to the Pledge until 1952. It is wrong and should be taken out. I do not believe in God and I find it offensive to have to say under God. I am Pagan and I would also find it offensive if it said under Godess. America is the place, where we are suppose to have freedom of religion, and though that might be so. People who do not believe in God, are always having it pushed down our throats and we shouldn't have it being pushed down our throats. I also believe that on our money where it says "IN GOD WE TRUST" should be taken off. Look at early American Money. God is no where on it.

Yes, they most definitely should. Whether it is a violation or not beween school and state is a different discussion. But our forefathers founded this country over 200 year ago and built it on the love of God. If I am correct Harry Truman was the one who added under to the Pledge of Allegiance. But I always knew it that way until recently. When I went to school we said under God and even said prayer for a time. Until they took that away. Now they want to take this from us! WHEN WILL IT STOP?!!!!!

No, they shouldn't be. They never were when it was originally written. When I said the pledge in school, I never said that part. It's just another way to ram someone else's religion down your throat. No thank you.

No, they shouldn't. They are a violation of the constitutional division between church and state. They were added when I was in high school, and I've never said the pledge in all the years since then. They are offensive to anyone who does not believe in god.
