School principal Tom Lopez supported the decision to have the pledge recited in this manner, and even after an outraged public contacted the school to complain Lopez stood his ground.

Lopez claims the kids weren’t trying to be “un-American,” but to “[accentuate] the meaning of the words as regularly spoken in English.”

The group that led the pledge this way is called the Cultural Arms Club, whose motto reads “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures.”
