“Atheist” Group Wants You To Boycott the Pledge Until “Under God” is Removed

Humanists.  Atheists.  Whatever.

They are anti-theists.  It’s not that they don’t believe.  It’s that they don’t want anyone to believe.

That’s what’s really behind stuff like this:

The American Humanist Association kicked off a national campaign to press people to stop pledging allegiance to the U.S. flag, until the phrase “under God” is removed.

The campaign includes YouTube video spots and bus stop ads in New York City and Washington, D.C., the group announced in a press release.

The spots suggest viewers visit the website, DontSaythePledge.com, which includes a history of the pledge and the clarification that “under God” wasn’t added until 1954.

“We want everyone to know that the current wording of the pledge discriminates against atheists and others who are good without a god, and we want them to stand up for fairness by sitting down until the pledge is restored to its original, unifying form,” said Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association.

Yeah, because everyone is forced to say “Under God,” under penalty of…what?

Exactly.
