One Nation Under God?

one_nation_under_God
SHORTPACKED!

This simple phrase, added to the pledge of allegiance over 50 years ago has been the source of unbelievable debate and heated controversy. Likewise, the phrase ‘In God We Trust’ on our currency has been targeted and continues to be attacked as improper and politically incorrect. Lawsuits have been filed and legal minds employed to ascertain whether such statements violate the concept of ‘separation of church and state’.

As this debate continues, some so called experts have implied or concluded that our Founding Fathers and Patriots were not religious. These secular champions, in an effort to further their own causes, have even painted these great men and women from our history as being devoid of religious passions or even a belief in God. This is a part of their strategy to remove any discussion of God from the public forum.

Jon McNaughton would like to set the record straight.

These men and women were passionately religious and saw the hand of God all around them. To God they gave Thanks for His Hand in the founding of this great nation. To Him, according to their own testimony, they turned for wisdom and strength when life and liberty hung in the balance. Certainly the debate on separation of church and state will continue. But no one can dispute how our Founding Fathers and Patriots felt about God. The record is clear!

‘One Nation Under God’ is Jon McNaughton’s witness and reminder that those who went before us knew from whence their blessings came!

    Isn’t it more like, “SOME of our founding fathers were religious?”

    They were Deists, most of them. They thought God did make the universe, but then went off to do other things, or something.

    I think this argument can be appreciated from a historical view point, though what I want to know is why is it necessary.
    Let’s say that the founding fathers really did add the phrase themselves, why would anyone today want to live like the people back then? Just because something is old, it’s not automatically right or better. People evolve, and so the system has to evolve too.

    “In god we trust” was added to money and “under god” was added to the pledge in the 50s for a few reasons. First, as a form of symbolic magic to beg for god’s help against the Soviets. Second, to make any godless commies in the country feel unwelcome. Third, to act as a lightning rod and flush out those that the far right considered anti-American. It is plainly unconstitutional but it becomes a catch 22. Defend the Constitution and you are labeled anti-American. Its from the same group that claims that anything other than laissez faire capitalism is communism… Read more »

    Since stupid people realized that they existed.

    Some examples (in no particular order):
    2000 & 2004 elections
    9-11-01
    Jim Crow laws
    Pearl Harbor
    N… oh wait I can’t win an argument if I name them. Those guys in WWII that weren’t Japanese or Italian.
    Interment / Concentration camps
    Spanish Inquisition (who expected that!)
    Galileo trial
    evolution/creationism debate
    Racism (any kind)
    Fascism
    Communism
    Unbridled Capitalism
    Oh heck just about any ‘ISM’ taken too far.

    But I digress.

    What do the founding fathers have to do with the pledge of allegiance? It was written in 1892: “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Then changed in 1924, to “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Changed again in 1954, to “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one… Read more »

    “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.” -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Horatio G. Spafford, March 17, 1814 “Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be deprecated.” – George Washington, letter to Edward Newenham, October 20, 1792 “We should begin by setting conscience free.

    Also, see Treaty of Tripoli (1796) Article 11

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli#Article_11

    It basically says we’re not a Christian nation and have no ill intentions toward Muslims. LOL. That’s awkward.

    Great treaty, especially after we attacked Tripoli. America is a nation that accepts all religions. The Christians just happen to be the loudest and most annoying group.

    Not all the founding fathers were Christian, in fact many detested religion and saw it as a weakness in society.

    kind of sad that america continues to support the ideal that somehow that their people follow god, when usa has the most diverse mix of all religions all competing to say that their version of god is best,….and also is the country that has so many individuals create their own religion and demand that they be recognized as a valid new form of religion,…and also so many who simply label themselves as a follower of a religion but never or almost never actually practise that religion so at the end of the day, most americans cannot agree on which is… Read more »

    Interest groups is a term that comes to mind. Though not forced, the Judeo-Christian ideology has a reigning status which is highly influential in politics and more than often bumps shoulders with the Separation of Church and State rule.

    You know what else the Founding Fathers loved?

    Slavery.

    Are you a christian slaver?

    Oh puh-leeze.
    Those founding fathers were dipshits for founding a country that went mentally belly-up thanks to their not being more specific in their designs, and not even I think they were more religious than not.

    Just look at that Jefferson guy! “The moral teachings of jesus of nazareth” (Read: Bible minus the supernatural)? Come on!

Well, he’s the token atheist of the portrait moaning to himself, “I’ve based my whole life denying Christ.. And now, here he is? What do I do? WHAT DO I DO?” As he contemplated the ineluctibility of his eventual damnation. Do YOU want to ever be in this position? No? Well, here’s what you do: 1. Go to school. 2. Study REALLY frigging hard.

Take a lot of video equipment with you. 6: Follow Jesus while he teaches his lessons. Just don’t change anything!

His message of acceptance, peace, and reason is rejected by everyone in charge. 8: The pope orders your… Read more »
