Compulsory Patriotism: Requiring the Pledge of Allegiance in school?

This article is scary. What the hell are people thinking?
It is horrific to me to that a state would even consider such a law.

David Moshman: Compulsory Patriotism: Requiring the Pledge of Allegiance.

This should horrify everyone, including our most patriotic citizens, if they truly love freedom and our constitution.

I have had several friends and students, some who were very patriotic, who don’t say the pledge of allegiance for a wide variety of reasons including: being atheist, being Christian, not believing in pledging to a symbol, not believing in blind allegiance to a government, to not believing in saying “justice for all” until that’s true

Forcing American citizens to participate in daily patriotic sayings is completley un-American, let alone a serious violation of their first amendment rights.
