Letter: Fargo School Board may have voted for a tax holiday

"Tell the district that if they do not want the pledge because of God, they should not want taxpayer money because God is included on our currency," writes Minot resident Craig Argabright.

Hey Fargo taxpayers, you need to address the Fargo School Board and tell them to put their money where their mouth is.

The Fargo School Board is now rejecting the Pledge of Allegiance as it contains the word “God” and thus is not in line with the board's diversity and inclusion policy.

Take any piece of U.S. currency out of your billfold or purse and look at it. You will find that every bill has the word “God” printed on the money. Now if the Fargo School Board is rejecting the Pledge of Allegiance due to having the word God, should they not reject taxpayer money as all currency has God included?

Tell the board that if they do not want the pledge because of God, they should not want taxpayer money because God is included on our currency. The Fargo School Board cannot have it both ways.

Craig Argabright is a resident of Minot.
