Pardon me, I was not actually aware that Jehovah is an etymological derivation of Yahweh. Thankyou for correcting me.

Although I agree that the words "under God" don't belong in the Pledge, the larger problem is that the Pledge is simply a loyalty oath more suitable to a totalitarian country than to a great free country.

We'd be much better off if people recited the preamble to either the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence in place of the Pledge.

Frankly, although I love my country, my allegiance is to God, not country. When a conflict arises between God and country, wise people choose God.
