Recently, the governor of Iowa passed a law saying schools must make student recite the Pledge of Allegiance everyday, whilst i do believe in honoring our country, the Pledge of Allegiance is not open to other religious beliefs.

The version of the Pledge of Allegiance were most familiar with was  in 1892.originally written by Francis Bellamy It was originally this: “I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the Republic for which it stands—one Nation indivisible—with liberty and justice for all.”

It hasn’t changed much over time, but in 1954 the final adjustment of adding “under God” was made after the Knights of Columbus pushed Congress to make the change. When the bill to reword the Pledge was signed into law, President Eisenhower said this: “From this day forward, the millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty…. In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s most powerful resource, in peace or in war.” Overall I, and many others, believe this to be unconstitutional and goes against the freedom of religion
