Posted on 01/30/2013 3:36:14 PM PST by Nachum
Fury is brewing at Rocky Mountain High School, in Colorado, after a multicultural student group were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in Arabic - replacing ´one nation under God´ with ´one nation under Allah´. Following Monday´s pledge, Principal Tom Lopez has been inundated with complaints from outraged parents concerned that saying the Pledge in any language other than English is unpatriotic. Standing by his controversial decision, Principal Lopez has said that despite the irate telephone calls and emails, he is not in any way or form trying to push an

As for Principal Tom Lopez, fire his sorry a$$.
a little at a time. this is how it happens. git over this one and wait for the next
Saw him interviewed. Sounds like a lefty La Raza ass.
Next thing you’ll be seeing is the students bringing out their mats and doing the nose-to-rectal region prayer!
The camel has just put its nose into the tent.
check his green card ... and how much of his education did he pay for ???
‘Heard talker Janet Mefford lambasting this earlier today. If you can’t recite it in English, don’t recite it.
Something about his name tells me he’s gotta be.
They don’t want God unless it’s Allah, which will be a total dictatorial theocracy.
Such is the evil insanity of the left.
I’ve got news for you, that wasn’t the camel’s nose that got into the tent. Might look a little like one, but.....
I agree, unless Arabic was just one language in a long rotation of languages into which the Pledge of Allegiance was translated and read and the list wasn't just "politically correct" languages like Arabic and Spanish, but included Hebrew, French, German, Russian, Greek, Latin,. . . or was selected explicitly to represent the native tongues of the ancestors of every student attending the school.
What would have been truly outrageous would have been for the Pledge to have been said in English with the word God replaced by "Allah". When speaking Arabic, Allah, the elision of Al Ilah, is the equivalent of the English God or the Greek ho theos, the definite article in either Greek or Arabic indicating the uniquely existing God, as distinct from a god, the way the capital letter does in English, and is used by Arabic speaking Christians as well as Muslims. To use the Arabic word when speaking in another language is to accept the Muslim conceit that the Arabic word is the proper name of God, and thus to accept the Mohammedan (mis-)conception of God.
I hope some good American makes the lives of those responsible pure hell!
Once again, the Brits need to tell us what’s going on in the US, as our own media is so lazy and in the tank for liberals.
As the Persian/Arabic story goes, the camel was cold and just wanted to put its nose in the tent to warm it. Eventually the whole camel winds up in the tent and there’s no room for anyone else. But I’m sure you know the proverb/story. LOL
When they pledge allegiance to United States, that’s exactly what they’re saying,’ Lopez said. ‘They’re just using another language as their vehicle,’ he said.
Well how Friggin special, I got news for Lopez, this is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA not Camelstahn! We speak English here not Arabic. And why is it that everyone gives Christians a load of cr*p in the public schools and scream bloody murder at the mention of God or a Bible, but Allah and the Koran are venerated and used to indoctrinate our children! It is time that the majority take back our schools and demand retards like Lopez be removed from our children.
Principal Tom Lopez should be fired, immediately. If he isn’t fired, I would pull my kids out of that school before the end of the week.
Someone THAT sick should not be involved the the education of our children, period.
Damn traitors are everywhere.
The Pledge is a pledge of allegiance to this country and it’s flag...It is NOT a teaching tool...It is a PROMISE....
When you pledge you are giving your word, your honor, and your total respect to the flag and to this country...
If you don’t want to say it, then don’t....But under no circumstances do you EVER, EVER disrespect this allegiance in any form at all...This “principle” should be fired immediately and an apology be publicly broadcast to all Americans....
