This Pledge Project is about creating a nation where rationalists can have a chance of winning public office and positions of public trust.
This is about creating a nation where the government is not teaching its citizens from the youngest age that their government looks on people who do not support 'one nation under God' the same way it looks on people who do not support 'liberty and justice for all'.
It is about creating a nation where the government does not put up signs in every government building and child's classroom that state, "Only a person who trusts in God can be one of us. And if you want to be one of us yourself, then you must also trust in God."

The Pledge Project
My attention has been elsewhere, but Alonzo Fyfe has been devoting his blog for the last month to explaining why "under God" has no business being in the Pledge of Allegiance. He has now compiled a table of contents post which links to all 33 essays in the series. This might be the sort of thing you want to e-mail to friends and family who don't consider the inclusion of "God" in the Pledge and on our money to be a big deal.
