Students Change Pledge Of Allegiance From ‘Under God’ To ‘Under Allah’
The political correctness movement across America is rapidly changing our government, immigration policies and definitely our education.
The pledge of allegiance has been unchanged and spoken in classrooms across our country from as early as 1892 when it was written and unchanged since "1954, when in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today."
It has served us as a country and a way of teaching young students about patriotism for over 100 years but now liberals and Muslims want to change all that to their current liking.

Students and teachers at Rocky Mountain High School in Colorado got quite the surprise when during the Pledge of Allegiance recited over the loudspeaker, they heard “one nation under Allah” rather than “one nation under God.”
The Pledge of Allegiance is read every Monday at the high school. A member of the Cultural Arms Club decided to replace the word.
Principal Tom Lopez has since gotten numerous complaints from angry parents, who believe that using “Allah” to replace “God” is unpatriotic.
Lopez, however, is standing by his decision.
“These students love this country,” he said, “They were note being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.”
Danielle Clark, the communications director for the school district commented as well, “We understand not everybody would agree with the students’ choice. We’ve heard there are some who are upset.”
She defends the Arabic reading by pointing out that the Arms Club has a known history for reading the Pledge in different languages—like French and Spanish.
Most students at Rocky Mountain High are defending their classmates, pointing to the motto of the Cultural Arms Club, which is to “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures.”
Student Skyler Bowden said, “No matter what language it’s said in, pledging your allegiance to the United States is the same in every language.”
Meanwhile, Lopez has been accused of pushing a Muslim agenda.
“I’ve been shocked with prejudicial statements that have been made,” said Lopez. “I’ve been shocked with the lack of seeking understanding. There’s definitely suspicion and fear expressed in these people’s minds. There’s some hate.”
What do you think of this change to the pledge?
Should 'under allah' be substituted in American schools for 'under god'?
