The other day I reported that the school next door to me had deleted the words “under God”–as in “one nation under God”–from the Pledge of Allegiance. In fact, I’d first noticed that back in April.
This morning, “under God” was back.
What gives? Had people called up the school board to complain? Or did the fact that school board elections are just around the corner have anything to do with it?
I’ll be keeping my ears peeled, to try to discern whether there’s any pattern in this. I could always contact the board myself, and ask for an explanation, but for the time being I prefer to wait and see.
