A "conscientous objector" to the pledge of allegiance 

As Kevin Drum asks:

This story is different from a [cough] "Christian" pharmacist refusing to dispense prescribed medication to keep women down on grounds of "conscience" how, exactly?

Seventh-grader Bailey Pierce, hand pressed against her heart, was reciting the Pledge of Allegiance when the voice over the intercom said something that stopped her cold.
"One nation, under 'your belief system.' "

Bailey said that guidance counselor Margo Lucero substituted the phrase for "under God" while leading the morning pledge at Everitt Middle School on Wednesday.(via Rocky Mountain News)

"One nation, indivisible, under your belief system, ...." It has a nice ring, doens't it? I hope this meme spreads....
