All I can say is, even when I was young and in HS, I would have REFUSED to do it.
They were reciting the pledge, for some reason, in Arabic. Allah is the Arabic word for “god” - which can mean the Islamic God or any other. Christian bibles, written in Arabic, use the word Allah. Zeus and Thor and Ganesha are allahs too. Just as in English we see a distinction between the word god and God.
Ill just remind you that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are the ones demanding that Muslims get special treatment in public schools, even granting that their students be allowed to pray and be excused from class for it. They have also passed out literature to teachers on the Islamic ideology and bashed schools for promoting off campus Bible studies.
“Allah” is Satan, look it up. In the Koran he calls himself “the great deceiver.” Now WHO else could be the “great deceiver” but Satan himself?
Government schools are evil.
You’re correct but I think this was done to highlight the fact that atheists are angered by saying under God. Arabic and Allah may have been a ruse de guerre and as the complaints pour in the complainers will be told now you know how we feel.
Lucifer ( Allah ) is attacking our pledge and our anthem.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
To be fair, they should now do it in Norwegian to Odin, Latin to Jupiter, Greek to Zeus, etc....
Good think FR doesn’t allow profanity.
But don't Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews use "Allah" for God?
Ship the principal to Syria if he loves that crap so much.
Allah never had a son.
God of the bible had a son.
I'm pretty sure that, where I went to school, the vast majority of us would have refused. We were not ignorant of the head games they were playing with us.
“Hasta la vista, baby” to any new school funding...
Thanks, George. It’s more than Mr. Lopez. It’s Larimer County. Its fascist planning and building regulations were on the Web, the last time I stumbled on them while searching for other tech. info.
All education should be privatized.
Isn't "Allah" the Arabic word for God, and isn't it used by Arabic-speaking Christians and Jews? If not, then what is the proper Arabic name for God of the Bible?
Allah is Satan. Allah is not just another god. Allah is Lucifer of the Bible.
Allah is the antithesis of the loving deity of the Bible.
Okay, so I'll restate the question: What is the name, in Arabic, for the loving deity of the Bible? As far as I know, it's Allah. If that isn't the correct name, then what is?
Arab Christians have been calling God - Allah - in their Bibles, hymns, etc. before the existence of Islam.
One misunderstanding among Muslims, based partially on the Quran (5:119), that Christians worship a Trinity of Father, Mother, and Son.
The Christian Trinity is Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
How can Muslims say we are worshipping the same God when you have such different understandings of the nature of God?
Christians and Muslims are not talking about the same God because Christians are talking about the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
