A Natl Religion?

What some people think? From a blog reply:

{Here is some of what they said}


The government's inscription of the phrase
"In God we trust" on coins and currency, as well as its addition of the words "under God" to the pledge of allegiance in 1954 and adoption of the phrase "In God we trust" as a national motto in 1956, were mistakes, which should be corrected.

{Actually the words have been on other US coins dating from the 1800s}

Under our Constitution, the government has no business proclaiming that "we trust" "In God." Some of us do, and some of us don't; each of us enjoys the freedom to make that choice; the government does not and should not purport to speak for us in this regard.
Nor does the government have any business calling on its citizens to voice affirmation of a god in any circumstances, let alone in the very pledge the government prescribes for affirming allegiance to the country.

The unnecessary insertion of an affirmation of a god in the pledge puts atheists and other nonbelievers in a Catch 22: Either recite the pledge with rank hypocrisy or accept exclusion from one of the basic rituals of citizenship enjoyed on "One Nation Under God" does not establish a National Religion

{This is a well worn phrase used to placate some minorities - yet the use of such words or phrases as "under God" does not limit anyone!}

*** Therefore what I attempt to write here is the truth - not what I want or like!

If a majority believe that these words reflect the sentiment of the nation then it is correct and proper to use them!

The understanding is that no one forces the words or phrases upon anyone; so why all the hullabaloo?

The coins still spend and if it bothers someone to recite the pledge all they have to do is ignore it or just stand and say nothing at all...

What hardship is that?

I believe there are just some Mandy-pansies...

Because the truth will always be true...
