AlbqOwl said:I really don't see how the "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance (which most of us don't consider 'stupid') affects in any way or has any bearing whatsoever on my previous comments. Nothing changed when these words were included in the Pledge any more than any other changes that have been made in the Pledge over the years. Acknowledgement of our cultural and historical religious heritage in no way changes, alters, or violates the Constitution.
It's true. Nothing changed. There is no god, and a bunch of hacks in Washington rewriting poetry and calling it law didn't invent one. So that hasn't changed.
But the lie forced into the poetry violated the seperation of the church from the state, demanding as it did that there was indeed a god and this nation is "under" it.
