The mayor of a small Colorado town has decided to ban the Pledge of Allegiance from town meetings, angering many officials.
“Due to direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of public meetings, and the general divisiveness this is creating in our community, we will not be doing the Pledge of Allegiance during town of Silverton board of trustee meetings,” said Mayor Shane Fuhrman. “and it’s [been] removed from agendas and our protocols until such time that we can discuss this at a board retreat or workshop.”
One Colorado representative bristled at the directive, tweeting about her frustration: “Silverton, CO’s Mayor unilaterally banned the Pledge of Allegiance at city meetings. It’s hard to put into words what kind of anti-American disgrace this is. Mayor Fuhrman should resign and purchase a one-way ticket to China where he won’t have to worry about hearing the pledge!”
