Separation of church and state.  This is a term that we have all heard and  learned about in school.  We were taught that the United States is a free country  that accepts all people from all backgrounds and as such we are to keep religion  out of government.  However, in our current Pledge of Allegiance we have the  words “under God”.  There are many that don’t see this as a problem.  However,  they are mostly all Christian believers.  So what about the people that have  alternative religious beliefs?  Well they are speaking their mind and trying to get  their voices heard.  These two groups of people continue their debates of whether  or not these words should remain in the pledge.
