Well i returned back to school from summer vacation just yesterday, first thing that happened once we got to our classes was our Principal talking on the intercom system about new pledge of allegiance rules. Aparently now we all say the pledge, which doesnt seem too strange, but then we say the pledge of allegiance to texas! never even heard of it, lol, thought it was odd. Even stranger they give us 1 minute after both pledges to pray. Anyone else from texas who knows more about this, or does anyone else in other states recently have such changes?

This sounds completely ridiculous. I live in Texas, but I do not attend school. Where in Texas is your school located?

Texas usually likes to believe it's its own country... This is hardly surprising.... Seems it'd make more sense to put the two moment of silence minutes together though....
Alright....another contender that may even beat out California and Florida, for village idiot of the Union, hehe....

Howdy, I am up here in VA and though we don't do the second pledge thing we do the moment of silence. It is well known that it is for praying but they cannot say that for legal reasons (separation of church and state). Why can't people pray on their own time instead of just wasting mine?

The Christian Bible states that prayer should be in sanctuary.

More of the zealots not following their own book.

I pray all the time. However, it is within myself and nobody elses damn business.

They tried to make the kids at my school say the schools pledge after the Pledge of Allegience. I sat down after the Pledge of Allegience everytime.
