Fargo, North Dakota School Board Cancels Pledge of Allegiance

Excuses for the cancel culture

quote:

Board member Seth Holden said the Pledge is not in line with the district’s diversity, equity, and inclusion scheme because the Pledge says the words “under God.”

“Given that the word ‘God’ in the text of the Pledge of Allegiance is capitalized,” the member said. “The text is clearly referring to the Judeo-Christian god and therefore, it does not include any other face such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, all of which are practiced by our staff and students at FPS.”

Because Holden believes Atheists and Agnostics are not accounted for in the Pledge, he calls the recitation a “non-inclusionary act.”


quote:

...Holden said, “not every single person in this country has liberty and justice.”

“We live in a diverse community and that is what matters,” another board member, Nyamal Dei, who is an immigrant and believes the fact that Americans come from “all walks of life” is “most important,” according to Inforum.


quote:

School Board President Tracie Newman thinks the Pledge is a “divisive issue” but has “no strong feelings either way.”

“I’m just not sure that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance is a useful way to begin every one of our board meetings,” she said.

Newman said she “would much prefer that we open our meetings with a shared statement of purpose that would bring us all together to do the work of the board.”

“Rather than starting our meeting on opposing sides of an issue, I’d rather us start by saying something unifying,” Newman said.

It says they stopped saying it before their school board meetings. Do you recite the pledge at the start of all your work meetings?

You misunderstand. It doesn't matter whether its appropriate or not, you can't remove God from anything.

Under God could be stamped on every stripper poll in the country and many Christians would bristle at anyone trying to remove it.

You'd want to cancel it if it said under Allah.

This dude needs to learn his history/religions. Islam and Christians worship the same God. Allah is islam for God, where they split is which son of Abraham they follow. Dont agree with Islam teaching but they worship the same God as Christians.

And you wouldn't. Maybe the muslims have it right. Go around beheading people and setting off bombs that kill indiscriminately, and you get some respect, huh?

Right, because you (they) are offended, so everyone else must change, or completely stop what they have done for generations.
