One Nation under God statement

I know of no other people that would proclaim the One Nation under God statement in this modern age. From what I have observed, however, any reference to God is strictly forbidden these days. We have done as much as we can to ignore or exclude God from the public sector, particular our government institutions.

It was President Eisenhower who acted on a suggestion by a pastor named George MacPherson Docherty after attending one of his services. At the urging of the President a bill was then introduced by then representative Charles Oakmen (R-Mich). Congress passed the necessary legislation and Eisenhower signed the bill into law on Flag Day, June 14, 1954.

Why would anyone consider adding such a declaration to the pledge of allegiance and then encourage our school children to recite this each morning? What was the perceived benefit?

To gain a proper perspective on this matter Americans and resident aliens need to examine the history of this nation and when doing so to be thorough and accurate in its examination.

Why are liberals so paranoid of the one nation under God statement?

Many resources today have been created in a very biased manner and have attempted to discredit the motives, beliefs and convictions of the founders of this country. So great care must be given when researching this subject.

It was Thomas Jefferson who wrote "can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?" Notice that he refers to the "minds of the people" meaning that it was a popular belief not just a personal one. The country in general, if not as a whole, understood this and accepted it.

Jefferson goes on to write in the Declaration of Independence "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness". Notice that he mentions "We" hold these truths to be self evident", meaning that this was not a belief shared by a minority that was being imposed on the general public. He also acknowledges a Creator and that He is the source of their "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness".

one nation under god

Our belief as a nation in God was not a problem back then. Throughout the time of immense growth that this country experienced we actually made reference to God in our public schools. Chaplains were among our warriors as they prepared to go into battle and some cases even accompanied them. It was never a problem and it never offended anyone.

Fast forward to the 21st century and now  we have been hoodwinked by liberals into apologizing for our faith in God and to restrain ourselves in public so that we may not offend, of all people, our Muslim neighbors. Our President even publicly declares that we are not a Christian nation.

What has been the result of America no longer believing the one nation under God statement? Just look at the conduct of teachers in our schools, the ridicule students face in school if they stand up for God and Country, the influence of Muslims in this country as they try to impose Sharia law on us all, the manner in which our congressmen conduct themselves, the ineptitude of our government, the lack of respect for citizens as elected officials do as they please.

Unfortunately, we as a nation have gone off course and "woe" to those who try to steer it back on course. What say you about the One Nation Under God statment ?
