I hate to tell you but not everybody believes in your creator theory and swearing to an imaginary god is akin to swearing to the easter bunny or the tooth fairy. So it really doesnt matter if they take it out. To many it doesnt mean a thing.


and yet, to many, it does. But as long as the vocal minority gets their way, there will be less tears and tantrums. It's and old idea to make your oaths mean something anyhow, they should be empty, like the words you type.

Eisenhower included 'In God We Trust' on our money in 1957. I believe a federal court ruled that this was NOT unconstitutional and could stay as recent as 2018. I would suspect that this swearing in oath will follow the same path...it will be determined that there is no conflict nor is it unconstitutional and will remain.


The supreme court also ruled making abortion legal. Activist judge is in the eye of the beholder.

nope,not this time



The House Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday voted to keep "so help you God" in the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, a day after Republicans denounced an apparent effort to strike the language.




“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority," House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., told Fox News. "They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

For many, if not most, that oath is utterly without meaning anyway. The only "god" they value is the money their masters pay them to do their bidding.

A mere oath made by someone willing to sell their honor is meaningless.

They may as well remove it. Neither party can claim moral superiority at this point. The pres cheated on all his wives and and only acts religious to play up to his base. If they are required to swear to a god they don't believe in then they start off with a lie. Just strike it out and concentrate on issues that matter.

Terrible.

All part of their false statement that the United States is a secular nation. Clearly, we are not. "One Nation Under God" says it all

Our very founding documents reference the Lord as their sole source of legitimate authority to declare independence, abolish King George's colonial authority and institute a government intended for self-rule (true liberty, vs. some type of mob rule farce)

Great post as usual carewemust
Great job on pointing this stuff out, many of us would probably miss this stuff otherwise

Truer words could not be spoken seagull


It is sickening what it has become. Like Trump or hate him, he certainly did us a favor by exposing the truth about government but especially two categories of people: 1) corrupt elected officials doing the bidding of their master with the most money and 2) entrenched executive branch employees (all the ABC agencies) who are unelected and unaccountable but nevertheless take it upon themselves to create policy vs. enacting it

That was added in the 50's. The socialist who wrote the pledge didn't have it in there from the beginning.

The motto that we had before that, 'E pluribis unum', is a much better representation of what our nations stands for.

The United States isn't, and never should be a religious or Christian / Catholic nation. You're free to practice any religion you want, but it should stay OUT of government completely.


Religion and Faith belongs in the hearts of politicians too, and it can be their moral compass. The line in the sand is forcing other to believe the same religion.

Your posts, while not great, aren't exactly cancer. You are too hard on yourself.

Good. This is far over due. It needs to me taken off the money as well.

In our day and age the united states is made up of many different faiths and beliefs.

Better that the federal government does not play favorites.
