How to make free speech martyrs of atheists
William Warren of Charlotte Atheists & Agnostics was civil in his response. According to the Charlotte Observer:
He said his group considered the vandalism an isolated act and not indicative of Charlotte’s religious community.
It would be ironic if Christians were found to be responsible for the vandalism. For the pledge in its original form, without the “under God” wording which was added in a Cold War heat in 1954, was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a Baptist minister (and socialist).
