Concerning the whole Taking God out of the allegiance.
There was a SUPER old thread I made and I'll just quote all I have to say about this from it.
"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible." These are the words of George Washington and I wholeheartedly agree.

Whatever strikes at the root of Christianity tends manifestly to the dissolution of civil government, because it tends to corrupt the morals of the people, and to destroy good order.
An attack on Jesus Christ was an attack on Christianity,and an attack on Christianity was an attack on the FOUNDATION of our Country. Therefore an attack on Jesus christ was equivalent to an attack on our country."
So for us to take Jesus and the Bible out of schools and take God out of the pledge of allegiance is forgetting why it was there in the first place!
What if we were to take away anything and everything that had to do with God? What would we have left? We would have nothing.
At the constitutional Convention of 1787, James Madison proposed the plan to divide the central government into three branches. He discovered this model of government from the PERFECT governor, as he read Isaiah 33:22;"For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our King;He will save us."
Think about it, if we were all brought up in Christ and of his Word, would there be as many Theives,murderers,rapists,terrorists? What about Abortianists?Originally Posted by George WashingtonOur founding father put God in our country for a reason, to teach Everyone of Christ and of the Ten Commandments.
America is the land of the free.
Freedom TO worship not FROM worship.
The Pilgrims came here To Be ABLE to worship under the religion that there is but One God whether you be Catholic, Baptist ,Christian, whatever.
So, now in todays world we are trying to take God out of our Pledge. We need to keep God IN! Even if your not Christian. But being brought up by the Christian PRINCIPLES.
Ten Commandments for example, Now I know no matter what that there WILL ALWAYS be Murderers rapists and so forth..But would there AS MANY if we were ALL brought up better?
I mean sure there would still be rebels.
Point is is that by saying that our founding fathers didn't MEAN to come here with God in the front lines of their calling and what they were seeking, is lies, look up some quotes from William Bradford and George washington.
People today are saying that "Well since they didn't really care if God was apart of what they were then why should we?" Is nonsense..because in fact they DID want God apart of their lives and part of their new found country.
YOU have the choice of whether or not YOU believe in God and follow his principles.
I'm not and no one is saying that we are going to force you into anything.
But what I AM saying is that, We CAME here to America with God in our minds.
And now people are trying to take it out of what we put it in in the first place.
Just because its there doesn't mean you HAVE to believe.
But for people to Start complaining NOW that they don't like the fact that God is in our pledge and what not, I mean COME on. It's been there since the day the pledge was created because this country is a Godly nation.
It doesn't harm anyone, It's not going to ruin your life, It's our pledge of ALLEGIENCE to our country and if some one just doesn't happen to like the fact that God is in it, then I mean seriously. Why SHOULD we take it out?
Whether you or anyone Believes in God or not.
Go ahead and don't believe, thats your choice and I nor anyone else can make that decision for you. Were not trying to pound God in you and force you to do anything.
Yes, you may feel uncomfortable about God being in whatever because thats just the way you feel about the situation.
But then, what about other countries and THEIR Basic religion. Hm?
If you go there and feel uncomfortable, are you going to complain to them about how they need to take Buddha or whomever out of their country because it annoys you...or what have you?
Well if you did you'd get shot down lol^.^
And Think AMERICANS are the ones complaining about our own country!
If you don't like it then go live in another country!
Not to be rude.
And if some one is THAT determined, then they should think what they DO have.
I mean No one has ever forced upon someone to be a Christian because of our laws. Or to believe in God. Or anything.
We all have the right to Choose!
So for people to COMPLAIN about God being in what its been in for Generations and generations, is to me, rather pathetic. NO OFFENSE to anyone.
I'm just sayin it like it is in my heart^.^
I hate no one.
All the GOOD Morals that Unbelievers have are DERIVED from the Religions of Christ. Be it Catholic, Christian, Baptist, Whatever.
Whether they got it from a Book or from someone teaching them to be good.
They are DERIVED from that of Christ.
So for us to take that out of our Country and everywhere anyway, Is Just...Well not good!
