Hmmm, any guesses as to who felt uncomfortable?
Via Red Alert Politics:
WFLA.com reported that the advisory council for Hillsborough Community College, in Fla., voted at its September meeting to drop the Pledge of Allegiance from meetings.
What started out as a proposal to save time turned into a discussion about “the Pledge of Allegiance and its appropriateness in an institution of higher learning which fosters academic freedom and structured dissent against authority.”
The accuracy of the minutes was being disputed by chair Sunshine Gibbons, according to an e-mail to WFLAC. The minutes did, however, reflect that “the Pledge made some people uncomfortable and that it violated their beliefs in academic freedom and the goals of the IAC.”
Even if the decision did come down to a time-saver, sophomore Scott Vosler, still doesn’t support the decision. He spoke to Fox and Friendsabout the council’s decision and mentioned “to be honest, the 12, 15 seconds it takes to say the pledge of allegiance is an insignificant amount of time.”
