Last night I was at a civic event and we had to stand, put our hands on our hearts, and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.  Because of the phrase “under God” I always feel uncomfortable reciting the Pledge.  At the end, I felt compelled to shout out an “Amen.”  But I resisted and whispered it to the woman in front of me, who laughed.

I suggest lots of people say “Amen” at the end of the Pledge.
