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

Oh, I see I didn’t read closely, and the headline is a lie.
Fire Lopez sorry a$$ as you said: they did not recite the Pledge of Alliegance in Arabic; they did the much worse thing, of accepting the Mohammedan conceit that the Arabic word for God is His proper name. This is indefensible both as an attack on Western Civilization and as a violation of the “ceremonial deism” which SCOTUS has always used to brush aside uber-secularist challenges to the mention of God in the Pledge of Alliegance, on our currency, in various public oaths, . . . as it is accepting a particular conception of the Deity to the exclusion of others.
Lopez yeah I am sure hes not a multicultural sympathizer.
First off: again, only reported by foreign media about something that happened here in the US.
Second, referring to the "question" above: Seriously? It "only" makes sense if the protester is ant-muslim, huh? How closed-minded of him! How about: this is America, and we speak English here, whether you like it or not? How about muslims are pushing their sharia "laws" into our faces and we don't like it? How about showing the descendants of the people who built this nation some respect?
As a two tour Vietnam veteran, I am EXTREMELY insulted by this person who allowed and pressed for this to occur....I am extremely fortunate to live half a country away from this POS or I would be arrested for assault and battery tomorrow....
Very well stated.
But, but...if amnesty gets passed, then the La Raza folks will convert to Republicans. /s
Our local anti-homeschooling ping list should be dancing in their burqas...
Principle Lopez. Quick, everyone ignore reality so we we don’t insult anyone by speaking the truth.
Here's Tomas Lopez's idea of patriotism:
There is no acceptable excuse for making kids say “one nation under Satan”. Diversity does not count as acceptable in this context or in most situations in which it is used to justify stupidity or evil.
The greatest power of the press, is the power to ignore.
The pupils sought the permission of Principal Lopez, who previously had allowed the Pledge to be read out in French and Spanish.
Further, I would add that English-speaking Christians are so used to using "God" as the name of the Judeo-Christian deity that we have largely forgotten that our deity has a name, variously given as Yahweh, Jehovah, the Tetragrammaton YHWH, etc. We so often use "God" as a proper name that we may forget that other religions may have similar constructs.
But overall, in America "Allah" is most often understood as the name of the Muslim deity, not just a descriptor. Consequently, I think this high school principal should be ridden out of town on a rail. Tarred and feathered, if possible.
Everyone in administration and authority who allowed this should be immediately terminated.
You’re damn right I would....This is AMERICA...It’s not black America, white America, red America, brown America....It is AMERICA for ALL....You don’t differentiate...
