It has come to my attention there is another pledge of allegiance that has been suggested by a very young man who sees the fruits of discontent abound in his school. From his words, his broken heart, a poem/pledge he sees as the future.
Is this what we have allowed? Why did we stand by and do nothing? Could we not have at least shouted from the rooftops about the wrongs perpetrated on our society? Don’t we hate injustice? Don’t we believe in Liberty? Don’t we know the difference between right and wrong? Then why has it come to this?
Let us pray that in the future we do not back down because of discomfort or embarrassment. After all, God did not deny or abandon us while we were yet sinners, and we are still only as rags in His sight. It is His Son who cleanses us white as snow. So let us give to God the glory for which He is so abundantly and amazingly deserving. 😉
Since the Pledge of Allegiance & The Lords Prayer are not allowed in schools anymore because the word ‘God’ is mentioned…
A 15 year old child in Ohio wrote the following:
NEW School prayer:
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule.
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That’s no offence; it’s a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God’s name is prohibited by the state.
We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King.
It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,
We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It’s scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
If you aren’t ashamed to do this, please pass this on.
Jesus said, ‘If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.’
Not ashamed. Pass this on.
We hear you, son. We are not ashamed. Pass it on.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
