Minnesota city council reinstate pledge of allegiance after numerous protests

After protests overwhelmed city staff, a Minnesota city council decided Monday to reverse last month’s decision to stop reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at meetings.

Apparently, the council, St. Louis Park, decided to stop reciting the pledge in order to allow "more diverse communities" feel welcome to participate in local government. But after “numerous protests” at subsequent meetings, the council unanimously voted to restate the pledge, Blaze Media reported.

"Why take that right away from other Americans who are really proud to be united and indivisible in one nation?" Marni Hockenberg of Roseville told the Star Tribune. "I think the Pledge of Allegiance celebrates our diversity, that we're all united."
