I am putting these comments in this thread because it sort of applies to the concerns and things I see going on in this world. Things that others don't seem to see or care about.
First, I just noticed that Notre Dame is playing Texas on Sunday... why?
Second, my youngest son goes to a catholic prep school and when I went to back to school night, we started out the evening with prayers to a variety of saints and then recited the pledge of allegiance.
The pledge went like this - "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, indivisible with liberty and justice for all". I was honestly startled and a bit taken aback when the person reciting the pledge over the PA system, distinctly omitted the phrase "under God"...
I'm not sure why it happened. I said something about it in the classroom we were in at the time and got no response from other parents. The parents near me... nothing. I have emailed the headmaster but have not received a response.
These kinds of things are warning signs and red flags in my opinion...
I fear greatly for the direction this country is choosing to follow.
