“Therefore, I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” – I Timothy 1: 1-4

Dear Senator,

Please vote “Yes on SB 2308.” The Pledge of Allegiance is a necessary part of American tradition, and recitation should be encouraged in our classrooms. Schools should be able to display the Ten Commandments. There is no better moral code to guide student behavior.
