What is the pledge of allegiance of Brazil?
We don't have exactly that in Brazil -- or at least that's not something we learn in school, like Americans do. What we have, though, is an anthem entirely dedicated to the Brazilian flag, just like every country has its national anthem. The "Hino à Bandeira do Brasil" was written by Olavo Bilac, and its music was composed by Francisco Braga. In case you want to look for the lyrics, it's the one which goes like "Salve lindo pendão da esperança / Salve símbolo augusto da paz / Tua nobre presença à lembrança / A grandeza da pátria nos traz".

In 1892, a minister named Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge (which means a promise or a vow) of Allegiance (which means loyalty or faithfulness) in order to promote patriotism, love of country and respect for the flag. It was originally designed for schools, to be taught to children. In the original …version, it said nothing about God. In fact, it was meant to be concise and not take very long to say. It was also not said with the hand on the heart, but with a salute. Here is what Rev. Bellamy wrote: " I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." But as time went by, several changes were made to the pledge. The last one occurred during the early 1950s, an era of McCarthyism and the Cold War, when the words "under God" were added to show that America is a God-fearing nation, as opposed to the Soviet Union, our enemy of that time, which espoused a belief in atheism. Today, the pledge, which is said with the hand over the heart, reads: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America andto the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God,indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
The Baptist Minister Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892. He was forced to leave his Boston church the previous year because of the socialist bent of his sermons. (He shared the political sentiments of his first cousin, Edward Bellamy, who wrote two socialist utopian novels, …Looking Backward and Equality .) Francis Bellamy was later hired by the The Youth's Companion , a popular family magazine at the time. His writings reflected a Christian Socialist vision of a government-managed economy with "political, social and economic equality for all." While writing for the journal, he was also on the Massachusetts State Education Board and was charged with organizing the state's Columbus Day celebrations in 1892. He decided to craft a pledge that school children would say aloud in front of the flag -- a pledge that would reflect his socialist beliefs. As published in Youth's Companion , the first version read, "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Mr. Bellamy considered using the word " equality " as well, but was aware that several members of his education committee were firmly against equal rights for women and African Americans. The phrase "under God," which was added by President Eisenhower in 1954, would not have met with Mr. Bellamy's approval. In his later years, Mr. Bellamy stopped attending services, dismayed by the openly racist sentiments of his church. (MORE)

It is our respect for our nation to help us be a stronger world andto build up our nation! It reaffirms our love of country.
The Pledge was written back in the late 1800s; it was designed so that people had a way of showing respect for their country and for the symbol of that country (the American flag). Allegiance is another word for loyalty-- so, you are promising to be loyal to your country.
the pledge of allegiance is recited by Christians and Jews in the U.S., most Muslims living in the U.S. probably say it too, although there is no separation of church and state in the Islamic religion, so possibly devout Muslims don't, but a majority of the U.S. does

I don't. So then you may ask, "why not?" Enough reasons here for anyone, liberal or conservative, religiousor atheist to have the Pledge of Allegiance removed from publicschools: 1. Meaning lost in endless repetition, no explanation given, nohistory provided. 2. Comprises an ideological viewpoint… that is forced on little kidsby authorities to whom they are dependent. 3. The two above, taken together, is the definition ofbrainwashing. 4. The absurdity of having to repeat a pledge daily that apparentlyis only good for 24 hours. 5. The conforming routine of it, which makes you feel like abrain-dead robot sheep as opposed to a citizen of a free countrywho enjoys individual liberty. 6. Subordinates the people to the government, which we are told ongood authority was created by us, with allegiance to us, not us toit. 7. Exalts nationalism over federalism contrary to the basicprinciples of our Republic. Subsuming states and individual rightsto central government is a necessary prerequisite for acentralized, socialist government to gain traction. This was anexplicit goal of Francis Bellamy, the socialist author of the P ofA. 8. Encourages jingoism. Antagonistic tribalism. No other countrieshave their citizens swear a loyalty oath to their government(except Mexico and the Philippines, mimicking the U.S). 9. Concocted by a company that sold flags as part of a plan tocompel schools to buy more flags while instilling socialist-stylenationalism in American children. 10. Unsavory connection with Nazis. The Pledge originally featuredthe Nazi-style salute. In fact, Hitler got it from the Italianfascists who much admired, that's right, kids in America doing itwhile saying the Pledge. 11. Is patriotic lip-service in place of, even at the expense of,actual civic engagement and action. (Symbolic patriotism) 12. Is uncritical patriotism at the expense of maintainingoversight over government. (Blind patriotism) 13. Considered by many Christians idolatry, taking the name of Godin vain, swearing oaths, serving two masters. 14. Divides the nation (and the classroom) along religious lines.Only those represented by the Judeo-Christian "God" need apply aspatriots (Ironic that "under God", comes right before"indivisible.") 15. Is hypocritical on the part of adults, bullying little kidsinto doing something that adults themselves don't do. (You say thePledge every day, do you, and on a government mandated schedule?) 16. And last, but not least, pledging allegiance to a flag is juststupid. (MORE)

There is no widely-known "pledge of allegiance to the bible", so you're probably talking about some fringe Evangelical practice invented within the last century. It is not a general tenet of Christianity that one must give allegiance to written words, nor that one must believe in the factual accu…racy or moral righteousness of the bible, except insofar as it describes "Christ".

To show respect. The Pledge is used on children as a form of indoctrination and social control,Everyday in their formative years, before innocent little children can start their day, they must observe a religio-military ceremony promising to support America and God.. All through their schooling Ove…r and over again, day after day year after year they recite the pledge,as with all indoctrinations (brain washing) if it said enough they will believe it and follow it without question.. Let us not forget the original Salute that went with the pledge,The Bellamy Salute was devised by Francis Bellamy, who wrote The Pledge.In the original salute the right hand is extended gracefully, palm upward, toward the Flag, and remains in this gesture till the end of the affirmation; whereupon all hands immediately drop to the side. Up to WWII, American kids saluted during The Pledge, but this was type of salute was dropped when the Nazis adopted an extremely similar salute to their Furor Adolph Hitler. (MORE)

you don't sing you say it if you really didn't know that you must not say it a lot
No. The Pledge of Allegiance didn't even have the word "God" in it until about 1953. After the II World War, as the Cold War progressed, President Eisenhower and others were keen to distinguish us more from the "Godless" Communist Soviets. Eisenhower called us "a nation of believers" (I think the…se were the words he used). They began encroaching on the wishes of our Founders that government remain secular while society can be as religious as it wants to be. The greatest reason why it is free to do so is that secular government's job is to address only secular matters and may say nothing in law about whether the people are religious (unless and until the people's religions cross the boundary into behavior that would be illegal no matter who did it).

Of course all Americans say the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag ofthe United States of America. That is a way in which we offer ourconfirmation of honor, respect and gratefulness to the flag of theUnited States of America, and for all for which she stands. More Information: The saying of the Pled…ge of Allegiance is not universal among "allAmericans." Jehovah's Witnesses do not say the Pledge of Allegiancebut instead stand at polite attention. They believe that the Pledgegoes beyond a mere statement of respect but entails idolatry of theflag and country, which the Bible condemns. The Bible has manyscriptures condemning idolatry, (eg. Ex. 20:4; Lev. 19:21; Isaiah135:15-18) The Pledge of Allegiance became an issue with Jehovah's Witnessesleading up to and during the Second Word War. In the face ofincreasing conflict around the world, many states enacted flagsalute requirements. On June 3, 1935, Joseph Franklin Rutherfordthe President of The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society stated inan interview at a Witness convention that to salute an earthlyemblem, ascribing salvation to it; was unfaithfulness to God. Hestated that he would not do it. While this was not yet a writtendoctrine, individual families began making conscientious decisionsto refuse to pledge the flag. The Witnesses' refusal to pledge,coupled with their refusal to serve in the military or to supportin the war effort in any way, raised the ire of the Americanpublic. Their refusal would put them in the forefront of the fightfor religious freedoms in America. In late 1935, Witness Walter Gobitas' two children--Lilian, 12, andBilly, 10--were expelled from school in Minersville, Pa., becausethey refused to pledge the flag. The ensuing court battle led tothe Supreme Court ruling of Gobitis vs. Minersville SchoolDistrict (1940) that the secular interests of the schooldistrict in fostering national patriotism overrode those ofreligious freedom. (The error in the family's name was due to aclerical error.) Pennsylvania's state flag salute was a secularpolicy enacted to encourage patriotism among school children andthat the state's interest in "national cohesion" was "inferior tonone in the hierarchy of legal issues". It was further stated thatthe proper place to make changes was through voting, not throughthe courts. The irony of this decision would not have been lost onthe Witnesses since they refused to vote. By the end of 1940, theAmerican Civil Liberties Union estimated that 1500 Witnesses hadbeen assaulted in 335 different attacks. Only three years later, the Supreme Court was to reverse itself in West Virginia Board of Education vs. Barnette (1943) .(Again, the last name of the family would be misspelled--Barnette,instead of Barnett.) This time, the court would hold that Witnesschildren could not be forced to pledge the flag. More importantly,school boards could not punish them or their parents for theirrefusal. Furthermore, they rejected the idea that legislatures,rather than the courts, were the proper place to address questionsof religious liberty. Justice Robert Jackson wrote, "The verypurpose of a Bill of Rights was to draw certain subjectsfrom...beyond the reach of majorities and officials and toestablish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts.One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a freepress, freedom of worship and assembly, may not be submitted tovote; they depend on the outcome of no elections." The court didnot shy away from the similarities in this case and the enforcednationalism abroad. "Those who begin in coercive elimination ofdissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters," Jacksonwrote. (MORE)
I am Proud to pledge Allegiance to our flag because I love our Country. I also love the people who saved our country. GOD BLESS THE USA
Yes, because it is a proper nou n. . Example: . The Pledge of Allegia nce was recited i n my class. .
I don't know when but someone wrote it when they were captured in world war one and he saw the American flag when we won before he died he wrote it.
Yes, because it is a symbol of Patriotism, rather than of religion. An important point here is that, instead of the plots, schemes,control and conspiracies often attributed to "the Jews", it hasbeen a Jewish principle throughout the exile that Jews are faithfulto whatever country they find themselv…es in, and the laws of thelocal government are the Jews' laws (with the exception that if astate passes laws against its Jewish population - i.e. like theNazis or Czarist Russia, Jews need not follow THOSE laws). So theJewish community does indeed, without reservation, promise fidelityto its state, or in other words, "... pledge allegiance ... to therepublic ...". In the US case especially, Jews are very proud to beUS citizens since the see the United States as the first country tohave guaranteed Jews equal citizenship regardless of the fact thatthey were not the dominant state religion.

The word "republic" refers to a government that is elected by the people, a democracy. The flag is a symbol of the United States, so those who say the pledge are promising they will give their loyalty (allegiance) to this country and to the democracy that it embodies.

They're called "Jews" not "Hebrews," and yes, American Jews do saythe pledge of allegiance, unless it's against their politicalviews. Jews who are citizens of other countries have no reason topledge their allegiance to the flag of the USA.
In the Pledge of Allegiance, you pledge your allegiance to twothings: the U.S. flag and the United States (the republic for whichthe flag stands).
