Pledge Battle

The whole debate about the Pledge of Allegiance is confusing. Just because I believe in God, does that mean it should be part of our pledge? A big part of me wants to say no, because if you don’t believe in God it’s not representative of you. It assumes all the nation is a God-fearing one. But at the same time, I feel a twinge of guilt, like I’m a bad Christian and bad American for even entertaining the discussion. I am proud to be in a country of religious freedom, but I also don’t want to be in a country where we have to tip-toe around each other. But I don’t want you to say your nation is under God if you don’t agree. I guess that’s why I’m not a judge, because I just can’t decide.
