DNC delegates drop ‘under God’ from Pledge of Allegiance

By Victor Morton - The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 19, 2020

At least two caucus meetings at this week’s Democratic National Convention began with recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance that omitted the phrase “under God.”

Two videos posted online — one of the person kicking off a Muslim meeting, and the other starting an LGBT meeting — showed the Pledge being recited incompletely.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. And to the republic for which it stands. One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” delegate A.J. Durrani said at the start of the DNC’s “Muslim Delegates and Allies Assembly.”

Nice, time to end that red scare nonsense.


Few people remember that the Pledge was written by a socialist. What the delegates said or didn’t say seems small beer to me.

Remember conservatives and the false rumor that Obama took the oath of office with his hand on the Koran?

So, the Muslim delegates oppose the mention of God?

No red scare necessary. They’re in the streets of our major cities every night committing acts of violence, threatening citizens, while their leaders sit back and watch, or force out black female police chiefs.


They did it as a party before, it is only a matter of time before they do it again.


This is no surprise because the Democratic Party is obsessed with advancing the abortion agenda, and they regularly oppose religious liberty.


What does “under God” even mean when you look at it in the context of the first amendment?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

Good point, the Constitution establishes that we are free to practice our religion. Free exercise of and it’s in the Pledge of Allegiance.


And therefore under God isn’t required, and some would say that “we are free to practice our religion” for some people involves not saying under God.

That’s right.

And I see nothing wrong with the press telling us some Democrats at the Convention chose to reject this wording. We all can make our own judgments as to significance.


Conservatives need to understand that freedom of religion is for all religions.


So you say. Do you have a source? That’s a point of contention and the Supreme Court has not ruled on that.

So, please, don’t label “Conservatives”, a negative, don’t understand something. Your assertion is not backed up anywhere.


What do you think the significance is? You seem to be implying that people who don’t feel comfortable saying under God in the pledge are somehow less than those who do.

I imply nothing. I am not uncomfortable.

Nor do Conservatives have problems understanding in regards to the other post, some may have problems, some don’t. Just like some liberals may have problems, others don’t.

Please discuss the issues.

The issue is that someone not including under God from the pledge is not a big deal. It’s not a sacred text.

What do you think under God means, and why is it important?

I honestly, am not trolling anyone.

The issue seems to be that some Democrats rejected saying “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, no more and no less. I said we can all make our own judgments. It speaks for itself.

What do I think personally about it is not that important. To me, it is a negative. Yes, I can imagine a Muslim if applicable or some other religions not feeling obliged to say it. I would take that into consideration as well. Maybe a Muslim would rather say “under Allah”, I’m sure they could say that at the same time. I don’t think people are being forced to say “under God”.

Public Law 83–396, signed on Flag Day, June 14, 1954, added the phrase “under God”.

It existed for 62 years without “Under God”.

I recommend that you ignore the personal attacks made against you. The attacks are merely used as a distraction away from the REAL ISSUE: that the Democratic Party is not particularly fond of God


It’s indicative of the Democratic Party’s hostility towards religion. One of the more shocking examples of this was forcing the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for abortifacients. I mean, really.
