Goddamn liberals in San Fran's 9th Circuit Keep "Under God" in the pledge!

Court upholds 'under God' in Pledge of Allegiance - washingtonpost.com

Nice to see a man trained as both a doctor and lawyer spending his time so wisely

I'd like to see a push to get "Under Yahweh" "Under Jehovah" "Under Allah" or "Under Jesus" in the Pledge just to see who responds then.

It doesn't bother me as much now that I never say the Pledge, but I thought making someone whose a nonbeliever swear an oath under God is a mortal sin for all involved. No?

As long as more people find out that "Under God" was added during the McCarthy era of the '50s, some justice has been done.

And "In God We Trust" on our money?
If there is a God, I'm guessing that tweaks him/her more than a little.

Yeah, "In God We Trust" but keep the receipt just in case.

The God of public religion isn't the personal God of Jesus, Mohammed or Abraham. The Founders understood the difference which is why they referred to Nature's God or the Creator rather than use Christian imagery. This allows for tolerance and reverence to "coexist" in the public square.

Alaska and Hawaii were added during the McCarthy era of the '50s. Doesn't make them any less legitimate does it?

I'll remember you said this next time you get up in arms when someone says this isn't a judeo-christian country.

I think you missed the point.

aside from McCarthy or the 1950s


give me a rational reason why Hawaii or Alaska are part of the United States?

Cuba makes more sense than Hawaii, geographically.

It would be interesting if Canada had bought Florida from Spain.

We needed Hawaii to provide us our 44th president and Alaska to provide the 45th.

And they make more sense than Vermont, politically.

I hear the ice fishing is pretty poor in Florida. We would have traded them Vermont for Florida eventually.

None of what I said conflicts with the fact this country was founded by, and reflects the traditions, ethics and beliefs of, readers of the Holy Bible and the ethos in which they freely choose to live.

Which is all meaningless talk. Religion and ethics aren't synonymous. Ethics existed before religion.

The less we talk about religion in politics, the better. For the common good. The only people who lose are those trying to use religion to consolidate power. And they deserve to lose.

I like how you get very technical when it comes to finding equality in the Constitution yet you have no problem believing and selling these vague thoughts. Very telling.

Where do you find these traditions, ethics, or beliefs that can solely be found in the Holy Bible reflected in the Constitution?

BVS, I think most people understand the difference between "A Christian Nation" and "a nation of Christians." I submit we are the latter.

You say we are neither?
