Minnesota city bans Pledge of Allegiance because….


Members of the city council for a Minneapolis suburb have voted to stop reciting the Pledge of Allegiance before council meetings, citing an effort to “create a more welcoming environment.” CBS Minnesota reports the St. Louis Park city council voted unanimously to make the change that will take effect on July 15.

“In order to create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community, we are going to forgo saying the Pledge of Allegiance before every meeting,” said Council Member Tim Brausen. At the meeting, Brausen said members might recite it in the future if there’s an appropriate opportunity, like if Boy Scouts are there.

David Gohman has made his home in St. Louis Park for nearly 30 years. The American flags that adorn his garden aren’t just decorations.

How, exactly, does saying the pledge make anyone feel unwelcome? And what of those who will now feel unwelcome?
