Moderates are not republicans
Here is what you dodged:
Disrespectful to whom? It could be argued it's disrespectful to the core principles on which America was founded to alter the pledge to include "god" and then to utter it in that form.So you didn't look it up...
I have made my case over and over again. It is you who are dodging.
This thread is about the pledge and as you can see that's what I was writing about. I even copied and pasted it for you into this post (above). Not sure how "screaming RACIST!!!" plays into this exchange.
You keep bringing up something that has not bearing on the discussion. Do you think you win points in a debate by just accusing me of being something? Like just screaming RACIST!!! means common sense and truth is just forgotten? Calling me something I am obviously not only tells me that you have not answers and can only fall on tired tactics to appease your own ego.
All organized religion has given us is a mess for others to deal with.

"Every time something really bad happens, people cry out for safety, and the government answers by taking rights away from good people.” - Penn Jillette amazingly enough, and I agree.
I have no idea why Americans care so much about a pledge of allegiance?
Do you think that other countries who don't have such pledges have no love of country and that simply making people say something that some of them don't even agree with completely (I'm on about the under god part here) will make you more patriotic?
