Outrage as high school recites Pledge in Arabic saying ´One Nation Under Allah´
Daily Mail ^ | 1/30/13 | James Nye

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.

'How on earth is it un-American to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in another language,' said Hooper to Fox News. 'It doesn’t make sense unless the people complaining are anti-Muslim or anti-middle eastern bigots.'

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?

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.

So if I tell you that the “Black National Anthem”is recited or sung daily in some Chicago schools would you be shocked. I sat in an administrator’s training session and it was in the video we viewed from a Chicago school!

The pupils sought the permission of Principal Lopez, who previously had allowed the Pledge to be read out in French and Spanish.

Well put, though I daresay it may cost you some flames. Your analysis is correct, as far as I know.

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.
