IT DOESN'T MATTER!!!!
Let's worry about the real # that affects the U.S.
The Pledge of Allegiance?
NOT #ING IMPORTANT!
Just another bull# Cold War construct.
Since this site is all about evidence, show me some evidence that God exists. Then I'll proudly say, "ONE NATION UNDER GOD!!!!" Till then, I have the right to refrain from saying that BS.
Like I said, show me some evidence and you can say whatever you want. Until then, I don't think it's right to say, "ONE NATION UNDER GOD." Our nation isn't under god, if this nation was under God, we wouldn't have so many evil people ruling it!!!!! That's assuming he or she exists...
"Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
NBC apologizes for cutting "under God" from Pledge of Allegiance before U.S. Open
Yeah, those wackos. The ones who cannot tolerate a belief system other than their empty, barren one.
Don't say they "choose to keep an open mind to different possibilities", because they are very intolerant of other belief systems. Their model is Michael Newdow, a hollow man if I ever saw one.
