San Juan Island, Washington: The leadership of Mullis Community Senior Center on San Juan Island in Washington State is no friend of Americans. They blamed the Pledge of Allegiance and a lunchtime prayer (saying grace) for declining attendance at their meetings.
So they stuffed the American Flag in a closet, and ditched the prayer. Seniors were not happy. The center says they’re “working on a plan” to reinstate the Pledge, but the prayer is history. The Pledge doesn’t need a “plan.” And grace said over lunch doesn’t need one either, truth be told. Reportedly the flag was restored to its place, but the pledge is still off limits.
The Seniors reached out to the local American Legion Post 163 for help. Consequently, some military veterans were thrown off the property, and the seniors told they could ‘recite the pledge in the closet’ where the flag was kept.
“We discovered that many of the incoming seniors were uncomfortable with an introductory ceremony where the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer were recited… we have a duty to provide a safe and peaceful environment in our building and on our property, inclusive to all.” Mullis Community Senior Center Executive Board
