I love saying the pledge of allegiance, anytime. And, because I believe in God, I have no problem saying that America is a nation under God. However, I can understand if someone did not want to say the pledge because of that phrase. Even though this country's leaders may have been devoted Christians, there should be no such thing as a national religion. The phrase "under God" dictates that you must believe in God to be a part of this country. God wants us to choose to acknowledge Him and love Him, not to be forced to do the same.
