Please explain to me why there is a League of Women Voters and how the Republic would be diminished if they didn’t exist?

Illinois League of Women Voters Debate Moderator Objects to Recitation of Pledge of Allegiance

It happened Wednesday night at the beginning of a debate between Democratic incumbent Melissa Bean, GOP challenger Joe Walsh and Green Party candidate Bill Scheurer.  The debate for Illinois 8th congressional district took place at Grayslake Central High School. While League of Women Voters moderator Kathy Tate-Bradish began explaining the rules of the debate an audience member raised his hand and (when called upon) asked if they were going to start with the Pledge of Allegiance. When she said no, the audience booed and almost all in the crowd of more than 300 stood and enthusiastically recited it anyway. Tate-Bradish, who joined in the pledge, issued a scolding when the crowd finished saying they are not allowed to disrespect her.

Just what objection do the Democrats have to the Pledge of Allegiance?  It used to be they just objected to the “under god” part.
