Zoning Board Member Yields to Pledge Pressure

Yet another American politician has been coerced into participating in the Pledge of Allegiance.

I have been following the story of Vietnam Navy veteran and Zoning Board of Adjustment member Robert Field, Jr., who refused to stand for the Pledge at zoning board meetings. He felt that the Board should give all who come before it a sense of neutrality and participating in the Pledge would give the individation that the Board is bias - particularly where non-citizens and others who have reason not to say the Pledge are concerned.

Well, yesterday, he was pressured into changing his position on the issue. He will now stand.

There is a comment section attached to this article. I have submitted my comment. We will see if they approve it.
