The founding fathers, who consisted of not only theists, but also deists and agnostics, purposely separated the new government and religion.But the separation was simply a line, not a Berlin wall.. Unfortunately, the United States is quickly becoming a Christian nation and our freedoms are rapidly diminishing.A few rather meaningless words do not take away any freedoms. "One nation under God" or "In God we trust" were not included on the original pledge of allegiance or currency, but was later added in the 1950's during the Cold War (U.S. Treasury - Fact Sheet on the History of"In God We Trust"). Christians complain when courts rule issues like this as unconstitutional, but the first amendment protects people's freedom from religion. Citing Christianity in classrooms, courts, and other public places alienates Muslims, Atheists, Jews, and any other form of opposing belief.Even if true, who cares, they will get over it.. Christians would be outraged if the pledge of the allegiance said "One nation under Muhammad" or if currency said "There is no God." This is exactly what Christianity foists upon Non-Christian citizens. This does not mean that Christians should not be allowed to practice their religion, but they should do it privately or in churches and not force their beliefs upon other people.
    How a few words force anything, is beyond me..
    Its those so-called missionaries, dressed in white shirts and natty suits gong from door to door who are trying this.. A door closed in the face solves this.
    Then there is all the Christian broadcasting...a turn of the wrist solves this..But, like it or not, we are, more or less a Christian nation...Jesus may not recognize it....
    Our nation needs reform and improvement in a hundred different areas...this would be the last....
    Just let it go...
    BTW, a man could say that I am an agnostic...But I detest labels..

    Moderator's Warning:
    Do you believe that the phrase "Under God" should be in the Pledge of Allegiance?No problem, folks...except a problem to the DP servers. Threads that go beyond 1000 posts tend to cause slow downs. We currently have 3 active threads with more than 1000 posts. I need to close them. Sorry about that. Please feel free to pick up this discussion in a new thread.
