you know what, if she doesn't want to recite it because she thinks it's a prayer, that's fine with me. But she still should stand and pay respect while it is recited by someone else. And if she doesn't, out she goes. (yes, I know the article does not say whether she stood quietly and respectfully or not.)

I think this is how Seventh Day Adventists see it.

I'm all for believing what you want, but I'm all about showing proper respect to others who chose to express those beliefs. The pledge is not a prayer, it's a pledge. Mine goes, "one nation, "pause", indivisible"

Makes me wonder what they would do if sworn in.
