Red Skelton was a funny man. The comedian graced our television sets for years bringing us lots of laughter. He was also a proud American.

In 1969, he discussed his love of the Pledge of Allegiance and he foreshadowed a problem we see today. Skelton said the pledge, while highlighting the significance of each word. Then he expressed concern that the pledge would be deemed to be a prayer and face an attempt to be eliminated from schools.
