This is terrible, but what makes it even worse is that this is becoming a common occurrence.
Schoolteachers are sending letters to parents and asking for permission to keep their children from pledging allegiance to the American flag.
As reported by Mad World News:
Catering to Islamic students and atheists who are mad that God is mentioned in the pledge, the district decided to send a form home for all parents to sign if they wanted their student to sit this tradition out. In the rhetoric-riddled form, it states that it’s a parent’s right to exclude their child from the Pledge of Allegiance, which specifies that they don’t have to stand or place their hand over their heart if they don’t want to.
But instead of signing this permission slip, one mother decided to respond by writing to the school in the spot intended for her signature and saying, “this is he dumbest thing I have ever read and I am so ashamed of this.”
It is horrible that our society has devolved into this politically-correct and apologetic state.
Luckily, we still have people like this patriotic mother who is standing up for what she believes in and honoring a country whose intention was to secure her and her family’s rights.
As Americans, no matter what your religion or ethnicity may be, we should respect the flag as the symbol of freedom that it represents.
How will we be able to maintain our American civilization if our school teachers don’t understand what is exceptional about this nation?
