Default Feds: New citizens can skip pledge to take up arms and defend the US

Quote:
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Tuesday said it will no longer require incoming U.S. citizens to pledge that they will "bear arms on behalf of the United States" or "perform noncombatant service" in the Armed Forces as part of the naturalization process.

Those lines are in the Oath of Allegiance that people recite as they become U.S. citizens. But USCIS said people "may" be able to exclude those phrases for reasons related to religion or if they have a conscientious objection.

USCIS said people with certain religious training or with a "deeply held moral or ethical code" may not have to say the phrases as they are naturalized.

The agency said people don't have to belong to a specific church or religion to use this exemption, and may attest to U.S. officials administering the oath that they have these beliefs.

Sure, why not. Welcome to obama's amerika where you don't owe your new country a thing. In fact if you want to blow us up just tell us and we'll let you in.

If the SHTF, I had better not have any of those craven cowards in my "foxhole" or at my back. If I am forced to use any of the weenies, I will assign them as feelers, and I will remind them that the enemy will not shoot at any unarmed person out in the open, and then send them out to scout for enemy activity.. They can wave a white flag if they want, or the fruit loop flag, for all I care.
