1. There are true blue, straight-up flag waving, dyin-for-your-country, born-here Americans who object to "under god" being in the pledge. And how about those first Americans; maybe we should say "one nation under the great spirit"?

2. "Under-god" was inserted into the pledge in the 50s.

3. What kind of patriot test is this anyway? You think crooks and those with nefarious motives would explode or change color if they say it? Everyone that says the pledge means it? Those that don't say the pledge don't mean it?

4. I work on a military base and we stop our cars on the way out at 5pm when the flag is being lowered. It is a sign of respect that, IMO, any country is owed.

5. Personally I don't like swearing oaths. If I find myself having to say the pledge - for instance at my citizenship ceremony - I'll just hop over "under god".
