The kids at the middle school are at it again. I was on my AM run and passed by the local public school. On the grounds were the teachers and children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
The problem is not necessarily the God part of it. The thing that troubled me was the lack of conviction in their voices. Droning on they recite something for the sake of getting done with it. I get the impression that they really are not believing what they are saying, sort of like when I was asked to say 10 Hail Mary's for swearing at my sister after confession.
Update (8:50PM): Lady Liberty brings up a good comment to this post. I thought I would hot link to my prior post about the Pledge for those who don't like to scroll.
