“Pledge of Allegiance” in School is Statist Indoctrination

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after she shared artwork from here

Tara M.: As long as there are exams, there will be prayer in school……

"Prayer was never banned from our public school. In fact, the courts have repeatedly upheld the right of student prayer (it just can't be led in any way or required by the school). We trust our teachers to provide education, not indoctrination. Religion is a freedom. Let's keep it that way."

Rayn: Indeed! Nonetheless, so long as teachers in US public schools continue to lead students in reciting the “Pledge of Allegiance,” they are still guilty of indoctrination! 🙂
