9. In finding that image

I ran across several that were laid out in that typical Facebook fundie graphic style,with the 1liek= 1 praeyr tagline (Spelling is authentic, not just my mistake) at the end.

I didn't click on any of those.

10. Thanks to the Jehovah's Witnesses, nobody can be forced to say that silly pledge

... Objections to the salute as "being too much like Hitler's" were raised by the Parent and Teachers Association, the Boy and Girl Scouts, the Red Cross, and the Federation of Women's Clubs. Some modification appears to have been made in deference to these objections, but no concession was made to Jehovah's Witnesses. What is now required is the "stiff-arm" salute, the saluter to keep the right hand raised with palm turned up while the following is repeated:
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of [p629] America and to the Republic for which it stands; one Nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Failure to conform is "insubordination," dealt with by expulsion. Readmission is denied by statute until compliance. Meanwhile, the expelled child is "unlawfully absent," and may be proceeded against as a delinquent. His parents or guardians are liable to prosecution, and, if convicted, are subject to fine not exceeding $50 and Jail term not exceeding thirty days ... Children of this faith have been expelled from school and are threatened with exclusion for no other cause. Officials threaten to send them to reformatories maintained for criminally inclined juveniles. Parents of such children have been prosecuted, and are threatened with prosecutions for causing delinquency ... If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein ...

319 U.S. 624 (1943)

11. And Barnette makes social pressure go away, too, right?

 

If you think kids can just decide not to say it in school without serious social repercussions (which vary by city and region, of course) then you are kidding yourself.

Remember the threats of death and rape on the girl that wanted the prayer banner out of her school?

13. I admire people who stand up for what they think is right, no matter what

That young woman quite properly won her lawsuit against that silly prayer banner

17. Coy:

21. Simpring:

simĚper
ˈsimpər/
verb
gerund or present participle: simpering
smile or gesture in an affectedly coquettish, coy, or ingratiating manner.
"she simpered, looking pleased with herself"
synonyms: smile affectedly, smile coquettishly, look coy, smirk, giggle, titter
"she sat there simpering, knowing she would have the last laugh"

Literally a synonym for Coy.

Now are you aware of your tone-deafness or not?
