American Flag and Pledge of Allegiance Banned from Veterans Day Service

84 views

Apparently, honoring the military cannot include the most basic of patriotic symbols at a school in the Northwest. Seattle Pacific University, a Christian school, recently ruled that the "Students for Military Veterans Support" club could not present colors or say the pledge of allegiance at their Veterans Day ceremony due to "diversity."

SPU released this statement:

“The organizers decided not to include the pledge of allegiance and the presentation of colors during the November 10 chapel, given that there are diversity of views on campus whether such elements should be part of a Christian worship service."

Holding the ceremony in the campus chapel has allegedly caused an uproar amongst an anonymous group of students.

Students for Military Veterans Support club member Daniel Fenlason thinks such a ruling is unfair:

“We should be able to pledge allegiance to the flag inside of our own church, in our own house of worship [for] the same people who died for that same right.”
