Oath of Allegiance to the State (18 Feb 2008) PDF Print E-mail

 

Attention: The Editor

18 February 2008

Dear Editor

Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

It is remarkable that the same government that has done it’s best to remove Bible reading, prayer and Hymn singing from our schools now is seeking to inaugurate a new religious rite – an oath of allegiance to the state.

The proposed pledge is long and awkwardly worded. It also fails to deal with the moral issues that are so obviously needed in our schools. Why not have our children recite a pledge like this: WE WILL NOT LIE, STEAL OR CHEAT, NEITHER WILL WE TOLERATE AMONGST OURSELVES ANYONE WHO DOES.

Yours sincerely

Dr Peter Hammond
