I Don't Pledge Allegiance to the Flag....

Within a Californian college, student leaders regularly attend meetings. It has been a major part of these gatherings for the students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. However, the student trustees have banned this regular routine. The majority believes there is no need to plegde their loyalty to the U.S. or even to God. This all, but minor decision has caused the infuriation of some of their classmates to be expressed. Although there are very few oppositions, the decision to discard a "necessary" part of the meetings has effected the entire organization.

A member of the student leaders, Christine Zoldos, revealed just how much she thought of America. She feels as though her country is one thing that she would not allow to be taken away. In response to the banned tradition, Zoldos would attend the meetings and recite the Pledge in front of the entire board. Other students claimed that the phrase 'Under God' was extremely offensive due to the fact that they were atheist or socialists. It seems as though the American tradition is in its first stages of causing a worlwide controversy.
