CAIR: Requiring Schools To Say The Pledge of Allegiance Is Un-Patriotic

CAIR says that making kids say the Pledge of Allegiance goes against what the pledge stands for:

Two Senate bills in the Oklahoma legislature are seeking to compel public-school students to recite the American Pledge of Allegiance are being met both with excitement and skepticism.

The first, SB 1143, authored by State Sen. Rob Standridge (R-Norman), would require elementary students to recite the pledge each day. The other, SB 1500, from State Sen. Larry Boggs (R-Wilburton) would require essentially the same thing. On Monday, both bills sailed through the Senate Education Committee and are now heading towards the full Senate for a vote. [..]

And Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR-Oklahoma, offered the following statement: “We believe that mandating the Pledge of Allegiance contradicts its contents.  The liberty discussed in the Pledge of Allegiance includes the right to make that pledge freely rather than by compulsion. We dishonor the Pledge of Allegiance by mandating its recital.”

“The passage of such legislation also has the potential of infringement on First Amendment rights. The pledge of allegiance is truly a sign of patriotism, however upholding our constitution is the best way to express our patriotism.”

Well, is he right, or should children be mandated to say the pledge?

What do you think?
