Pledge of Divergence?

How would you like to help out the poor people today who are suffering from religious oppression?
This article shows how some students are trying to make a making pantheism the main religion.!!

"I pledge allegiance to the flag and my constitutional rights with which it comes. And to the diversity, in which our nation stands, one nation, part of one planet, with liberty, freedom, choice and justice for all."

"A lot of people have different reasons (for the protest), but mainly it's (because the traditional Pledge is) a complete violation of our separation of church and state," one student said.

Strangely, they are protesting a law which is actually not a Federal law, and not even a constitutional right, but a:

...state law requiring that schools make a time available during the school day for students to recite the traditional Pledge if they want...

They plan to hold a protest every week until the oppression is lifted. An interesting postscript is on the last paragraph of the article.
Boulder High also is the school where students were herded into a mandatory seminar where a special guest speaker encouraged them to use drugs, and etc.
