A family in Boston hopes to change the phrasing of the Pledge of Allegiance to remove two words BIG words they claim violate students' rights.
The family is challenging the pledge claiming the words "under God" violate the state's equal rights laws. The Pledge of course is recited in many public schools and during sports games throughout the nation.
David Niose, former president of the American Humanist Association, and the plaintiffs' representative, opened his arguments Wednesday saying the pledge’s use of “under God” violates the Equal Rights Amendment of the Massachusetts Constitution and is an issue of discrimination.
Niose said the pledge’s repetitiveness in the public school system is indoctrinating and alienating to atheists.
“It validates believers as good patriots and it invalidates atheists as non-believers at best and unpatriotic at worst,” he said.
“If they succeed in their goals here,” he said, “they will attempt to replicate it elsewhere."
