Rocky Mountain High School principal Tom Lopez is standing by his decision to allow students from a multicultural group to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic on the school's intercom. Students have always said it in English. This year, a group with about 30 students approached Lopez with a request to translate and recite the pledge in other languages. First, the students translated and read French. Then they recited the pledge in Spanish last fall. Monday, students read the pledge in Arabic. Some parents are angry over this.

Lopez told 9 news, "This is very American, not un-American."
