Removed the following line: *The Pledge of Allegiance asks that millions of school children rote recite the pledge "under God" in vain. If taken to mean that you shouldn't say "God" pointlessly then US law requires breaking the 3rd commandment. US law does not require anyone to recite the pledge of allegiance - Jehovah's Witnesses, the Amish, Atheists, and various other groups refrain from reciting the pledge. (Incidentally, 4 USC 4 states that while in uniform, american servicemen are not to recite the pledge. The justification for this is that the pledge can conflict with the oath of enlistment/oath of office, which states that a soldier's allegiance is to the constitution, the president, and the officers appointed over him, not the flag, the republic, or god.)
