Young Heretics vs. the Flag Religion

Email Print

The “Pledge of Allegiance” is an anti-secessionist oath of fealty to centralized government and its myths. Imposed on kids forced to attend government schools and other victims, it was written by an atheist Baptist minister and socialist after Lincoln’s War. Ike added “under God” during the US Cold War against Russia, to keep the hierarchy of authority straight in everyone’s mind:
1. God
2. Government
3. You
Now, three small-town eighth-graders have been suspended for refusing to stand for the daily federal oath. Future libertarians? (Thanks to Blake W. Imeson.)
