Why do classrooms sing the Pledge of Allegiance in the morning if they just sing it, and not do anything following it? I mean, Christian schools probably do it too and follow it, but normal schools. When I went to the local elementary school k-2nd grade, we sang it and then we were taught things against it. So, empty words.

It looks worse if you don't say it at all

You literally have the option of not participating in it

If one doesn't participate in the Pledge you can't really be admonished for it (freedom of speech and such) 

The Pledge of Allegiance was written about 120 years ago; ideals were different back then

Anyone who was anyone at that time was Christian and everyone wanted to think the US was blessed by God or something

 

Also you said "sing" so did you mean the National Anthem? I don't know anyone who sings the Pledge of Allegiance but there's probably people who do...

To be honest I mix the two up on a daily basis, it seems like.
