Outrage as high school recites Pledge in Arabic saying 'One Nation Under Allah'
#1
Quote:Fury is brewing at Rocky Mountain High School, in Colorado, after a multicultural student group were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in Arabic - replacing 'one nation under God' with 'one nation under Allah'.

Following Monday's pledge, Principal Tom Lopez has been inundated with complaints from outraged parents concerned that saying the Pledge in any language other than English is unpatriotic.

Standing by his controversial decision, Principal Lopez has said that despite the irate telephone calls and emails, he is not in any way or form trying to push an Islamic agenda at the Fort Collins school.

Saying the pledge, in any language, doesn't make one patriotic. Be that as it may, the first amendment applies to, well, everyone. So while their outrage is delicious, there isn't much they can do about it.


More from the article, key points;

"The pupils sought the permission of Principal Lopez, who previously had allowed the Pledge to be read out in French and Spanish."



"Clark said though, that the club has a history of reading the Pledge in different languages and some parents have emailed to say it 'was a great thing'.

And she added that the students had asked permission from the principal.

'We deferred to the students because it’s their deal,' she said to Fox News."



"Obviously in Arabic, you would use the word Allah, but Christian Arabs would use the word Allah,' said Ibrahim Hooper, of the Council on American Islamic Relations.

'It’s not necessarily specific to Islam and Muslims.'"



I see nothing wrong, here.

I would be outraged also. This country was found on the belief of God not allah. If they want to say it silently to themselves go for it. Its time for these people to assimilate to our culture not us to theirs.

I agree.. it IS an outrage... I dont care if they spoke it in Spanish or French or Swahili.... I am sure their translation meant GOD.. not Allah.... and just tired of bending over to the "politically correct" crap that is going on in this country. They should adhere to OUR customs, as we would HAVE to in their countries... and remember that if you spoke against THEIR Allah you would be put into prison, if you lasted that long... and as far as I am concerned if they dont like it ... go back to your Allah land and do what you want there...

Get a grip. There was no "they." It was a bunch of American kids exercising their first amendment rights. No one is forcing them, you, or anyone to adapt to your mythical "their" culture.

Most of the founding fathers were Freemasons. In freemasonry you must believe in a supreme being of creator, they do not care what you call that supreme being. They have every right to call it allah or jesus or any other name they want.

Well apparently SOME people on here agree with their right to say and do what they want.. and take something that is American and make it a Muslim saying... so be it... doesnt mean that I have to like it, agree with it or sit and listen to it... that is MY right... and I ALSO have the right of FREE speech and if you dont like that then too bad for you.....

I saw on the History Channel that most of the Founding Fathers classified themselves as Deists. I find their way of thinking to be very tolerable of all religions.
