    I find that "pledging allegiance" to an inanimate object is like worshipping a golden calf. That is a contradiction by putting a god's name with it. People think that god is patiriotic yet the promised land of america is not mentioned in the bible. lol god is not American. I am sure he wouldn't want his name on money (being the root of all evil). It's someone else's mythology or superstition, but I was raised with it, so I know of what I speak.

    You really, really need to stop your posts that contain bold faced lies! What is it about the truth that eludes your capacitiy to write?

    It is a FACT that the Supremes do not "usually" overturn rulings by the 9th Cicuit Court AND it is a FACT that statistically the 9th Circuit Court's decisions that are overturned are done so at virtually the same rate as the other Cicuit Courts.

    You really need to stop making posts that are totally filled with lies and that source whacko right wing bloggers as your source. We've been down this road before and I clearly posted links that prove your posts are full of $hit/lies so why do you insist on reposting these lies when you've already been proven to be wrong? Are you really that stupid or do you only read your own posts and remain clueless to the factual posts that are in this community?

    I think the only "whacko" is someone who ignores proven fact to further their beliefs, for it must surely be a sign of ignorance at best or mental incapacity at worst, or maybe both?

    Incredible! Navy's posts define the laws of probability! I think it is statistically impossible that one poster can make so many posts that contain so many errors! Even if random words are typed together in a "jumble" those posts would not be as wrong factually as Navy's posts are! His posts are a freak of nature!

    Imagine the brain power it takes to write that elections in the USA are decided by the majority? Imagine that when cornered, again, by others in this community that take you to task for again posting untruths that your response is "get a life"? Navy Pride, you're a frickin' genius!

    Do you think that someone who is so consistently factually incorrect in their posts doesn't know that virtually everyone in this community cracks up when those posts are read due to the amazing ineptitude?

    Not just any god, "Nature's God".

    I'd say it is clearly referring to the God of Deism. The connection between nature and Deism is shown in Deist literature such as Thomas Paine's "Age of Reason", (available online for free). This God does not interfere in the affairs of men and in fact, gave man the gift of reason which was obviously what was appealed to when drafting our Constitution, not revelation/superstition.

    In light of all the hurricanes were having, we should probably keep it in there a little longer.

    How can a "god" be all-powerful and man have freewill? It is a zero-sum gain.

    If the founding fathers wanted "under God" in the pledge, they would have put it there.

    Francis Bellamy's pledge postdates the founding fathers by a century.

    And to tell the truth, I may well have been against this "under God" addition back a half century ago when it was introduced, however, it is here to stay unless the atheists and their supporters become dominate..
