I saw in the news where a teacher got mad at a student for coming in late during the Pledge of Allegiance and threw them against a wall and so the student was suing.
This made me want to ask, Jehovah's Witnesses stand up during the Pledge of Allegiance along with everyone else. Why is that ok but, it wasn't ok for Shadrach , Meshach and Abednego to bow down to the king's idol ? If the command had been for everyone who was sitting to stand at attention for the idol, wouldn't that have been the same thing ? I realize they will say it's just a way to show they recognize the government is only in it's position because of God but, wouldn't the act of standing/bowing visibly show everyone that you are in agreement with that authority ? After all, the Pledge of Allegiance states it's one nation under God. By standing isn't that the same as showing subjection to the nation ?
