The mention of God was added to the pledge in the 1950s, 1959 I believe.

And...the person who originally wrote the Pledge was (/gasp) a socialist8)

I would like to apologize for my earlier language.  I didn’t realize that I was addressing a 12 year old born again Christian.  I don’t normally speak to children in that manner.

What does a person's political affiliation
have to with writing the Pledge of Allegiance ?

Just more ad hominem, they can't help themselves. It would seem that God has given them over to reprobate minds and they know no better.  :-\ but I really hope that's not the case......

Reminds me of Romans 1

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
"Mark this day on your calendar (12/18/2019). It is the day that the Democratic Party sealed its fate for a generation becoming a minority party for years to come. After dancing in the dark near a cliff, they finally took one tantrum-two-step too far. It’s going to be a hard landing."

No one does more as hominem on here than you.  And you seriously think she was denigrating the writer of the pledge for being a socialist?  You make very little sense.

Just providing the boy with some information since he is obviously uninformed and woefully ignorant.

Oh...and I'm amused at the irony of your (as in all y'all's) reverence in reciting a pledge written by someone who preached that Jesus was a socialist and capitalism is evil.

But then again...he was anti-immigrant and racist, and his form of socialism was more along the lines of National Socialism...so there's that.

No one cares about who wrote the pledge.
They like the patriotism that the pledge instills
in Americans.

Again no one cares about the political affiliation
of the author.

Hmm...

So that means someone who is an avowed socialist, who preaches that Jesus was a socialist, and that capitalism is evil can instill patriotism in generations of American children and adults.  8)
