A Roundup reader laments that people (liberals) want to force their way of life on him. He writes, “They want to take away the Pledge, eliminate four of the Ten Commandments (ACLU) is behind that, and not fly the flag of this country.” This, among other gems, is nonsense.
I don’t know any liberals that want to eliminate the Pledge of Allegiance. There is some disagreement over whether “Under God” should be part of the Pledge, but removing that is not “eliminating the Pledge.” Liberals recite the Pledge too. Some do, however, omit the “Under God” part.
I don’t see how anyone could “eliminate” any of the Ten Commandments. They will always be there. They are not, however, part of the U.S. Constitution — and they never were. God and Jesus Christ are not even mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. Nope, not there.
The writer is free to observe whatever religious doctrine he likes, thanks to the First Amendment. Liberals enthusiastically support the First Amendment.
Liberals fly the flag as well. And even if one didn’t, I don’t see how that would be “Forcing their way of life on him.”
Kinda sounds like he “Don’t know a thing.”
