'Under God' Under Assault

Francis Bellamy, an American Socialist, wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892. Congress formally adopted it in 1942, and the words “under God” were added in 1954.

Today, that phrase gives modern Socialists serious heartburn. The American Humanist Association, an atheist group, is suing a New Jersey school district over the words “under God,” saying the phrase “marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots.”

There are some who will not rest until God is expelled altogether from public life.

2:46 - interesting that you commented on this today. It is 999 days until the next president is sworn in. Upside down it is 666, the mark of the beast. Coincidence?

Luke, you need to throw some pontification towards 4:16, buddy. We are counting on you. I am sure that you find the perfect out of context Bible quotation for the occasion.

According to the First Amendment, each of us is free to worship as we see fit, anywhere, anytime. Your argument of "Ya want Jeezus, go the Church." is therefore invalid. Please stop trying to infringe upon the rights of others.

So, if you want Jeezus, go to city hall? That's fucking stupid. You You want to pray, then pray. Just leave me out of your ancient delusions.

Christians should follow the words of Jesus and practice their religion in private (I.E., their closet).

The purveyor of this site is proof positive that being an atheist doesn't mean you have to be a completely anti-religious asshole.

Perhaps you should examine his example of self confidence and self awareness instead of projecting your mental weakness and inability to tolerate or ignore onto everyone else.

What does an imaginary deity have to do with love of country ?

It would seem a significant proportion of the US population would prefer to use democracy to gain a theocracy (whether "Christian" or "Muslem") which of course would not then be a democracy.
Some dictators/demagogues have famously applied the same tactic.

Does that make him just an asshole, then?

We take god out of schools and we wonder where he is when kids shoot their friends, teachers and themselves.

We take god out of government and we wonder where he is when politicians lie, cheat and steal from us.

We take god out of the public square and we wonder where he his when disasters happen.

We have taken god out of everything and we wonder how we can have billions of abortions, mass killings, fatherless children, rampant drug use, a rotting festering core where our social morality and conscience used to be.

We blame god and ask where he was during all this. He was exactly where you wanted him, GONE!

Enjoy!

"when kids shoot their friends, teachers and themselves." Ask the NRA about this one.

"when politicians lie, cheat and steal from us." Ask the judicial system about this one.

"where he his when disasters happen." Did god force people to live in flood zones, tornado ally, earthquake zones, and wild file prone areas?

that's "wild fire prone areas"

God is supposed to be everywhere and in everything, so how has he "gone"- unless he/it was never there in the first place.

President Obama said, “They kind of speak for themselves … When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t have to do anything, you just let them talk"

He must be describing the right wing commenters here.
