I'm pretty meh on the issue you bring up.

If you really wanted to point out a MUCH bigger issue on this, is why are they making high schoolers even say this oath? Better yet what will the international students at these schools do? I mean they damn well can't take an oath to the US can they?

I have more of a problem that you have to recite a loyalty oath period in order to graduate...wtf is wrong with Arizona?


This x1000.

But this thread is a perfect example of why statists are winning in this country. Rex is complaining about God being in the oath and not about the government coercion aspect.

In other words, government force is good as long as it's in line with his views. Social conservatives do the same. And partisan hacks ignore pretty much any government intrusion if their own team is in power.

Nice to be able to add one more state to the list. It used to be "If it wasn't for Mississippi an Arkansas, Louisiana would be at the top of the worst lists and the bottom of the best lists" Arizona can now officially join our neighbors and further deflect the negative attention. Truth be told, I love Arizona, used to work for ASU, and hate all the crazy detours the state Replicans insist on taking.

So, the words "so help me God" will also prevent atheists from being on a jury, or serve in public office


You don't have to say "so help me God" to swear an oath in court or to be on a jury.

Awfully easy to dismiss this when you're not the target.

The objective is to create a court case where the right wing religious can wave their Johnsons around at the unfair activist judges that would shoot such a requirement down.

Hooray idiocy!!

Keep church in church. And keep politics out of church.
