Wow.  NO pledge even voluntary due to the fact God is mentioned and it might offend the religious atheists?  It’s interesting that the atheistists think they are being infringed but the ironic part is they are infringing on everyone else 1st amendment rights by removing the ability for said pledge to be said voluntary.

When Sean Harrington entered his freshman year at Arlington High School, he noticed something peculiar: There were no American flags in the classrooms, and no one recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

So Harrington enlisted the aid of his fellow students, and now, three years later, they have succeeded in getting flags installed in the classrooms. But the pledge still will not be recited.

The Arlington, Mass., school committee has rejected the 17-year-old’s request to allow students to voluntarily recite the Pledge of Allegiance, because some educators are concerned that it would be hard to find teachers willing to recite it, according to a report in the Arlington Patch.
