Colorado High School Replaces “God” With “Allah” In Pledge

In America, we hold a few things sacred; two of which being the Pledge of Allegiance and our National Anthem. Recently deciding to trample upon the cherished tradition was a Colorado High School that decided to replace the word “God,” with “Allah” during the school’s broadcasted Pledge of Allegiance.

Needless to say, as just about everyone would expect, the decision has sparked quite the firestorm with the school’s principal being the target. The principal of Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, Tom Lopez, tried to justify his actions recently saying, “These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.” http://www.mrconservative.com/2014/04/40...in-pledge/

The nice thing about using "God" is that, while it is often associated with the Christian God, "God" can refer to a whole host of deities, including Allah. The pledge, as it is, is pluralistic in the deity it references. As such, the pledge can be personalized by the speaker to refer to his or her own preferred deity (or higher power, etc.). By changing the pledge to "Allah", the pledge becomes directive, requiring the speaker to reference a specific religion.

I agree. I also think that this just more proof western culture is under attack.

Allah and the Christian God and the Jewish God are all the same fucking God. What difference does it make? Shit that isn't even its actual name.

And for the record, God is feminine, not masculine and we are all God expressing itself in different forms because it is all that exists.

Kids shouldn't be saying the pledge in the first place, but if they're going to, they have every right to say it how they please. You know, first amendment free speech and freedom of religion and all.

Besides, allah is merely the Arabic word for god and isn't specific to Islam. In fact, that's the word that Arabic speaking Christians use still today.

There's nothing wrong here.

These are not Arabic speaking students. They are English speaking student. In addition it was not the student body that decided to change the pledge, but a small club within the school.
