I am a Boy Scout and am working on my communications merit badge. Some schools today are not requiring students to say the "Pledge of Allegiance." This is because they think that the term "under God" is violating the separation of church and state. I feel that it is important to show respect to your country, and that there is nothing wrong with using the term "under God" because the United States was founded as a Christian country.
