Our pledge of allegiance was written by a minister many years ago.
In the 1950s, two words were added: “Under God.”
Now, in a move to make all things PC (politically correct), a group in North Carolina has put up billboards with the words “One Nation Indivisible.” No mention of God.
Not to be outdone, a group of churches in the area, under the banner of We All Pray (http://www.weallpray.com) banded together and did their own advertising. All it says is “Under God.”
I remember a verse in the Bible that was occassionally read on a local TV station–Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord. In their move to political correctness, they have removed that from the station.
As I have written about earlier, even the Supreme Court has weighed in on issues like this. It allowed a cross in the Mojave Desert in California to remain where it was. It had been there since the 1930s, honoring World War I soldiers.
There is a concerted effort by those who are anti-God to remove crosses from all gravesites in veterans’ cemataries, In God We Trust from being printed on our money, ban Baccalaureate Services at high schools and refuse to use the word Christmas, using Season’s Greetings or Happy Holydays instead. Noticed I used the word Holydays. Any way you put it, Christmas is still a Holy Day to the vast majority of the American public.
One of my favorite truisms goes like this–Stand up for what is right, even if you stand alone.
We, the silent majority, must stand up for what is right. You, and we, are not alone. Do not let the vocal minority dictate their beliefs (or non beliefs) on us, the silent majority.
One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice, for ALL.
