Keeping God In Pledge of Allegiance Faces New Legal Attack on America’s Soul

  America’s heartland must fight to keep “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance

 

Fifty-nine years ago young children all across America walked into their respective schoolrooms and with pride bursting in their young chests they recited the Pledge of Allegiance. There was a new and deeper meaning reflected in the addition to this pledge because the words “under God” were inserted to read, in full, “one nation under God.”

Since that momentous year millions of elementary school students all across America have recited this pledge – some hoping that their teacher will select them to stand in front of the classroom to proudly lead the recitation. Yet deep within the hardened hearts of some in America – led by infamous atheists like Madalyn Murray O’Hair – a concerted effort began to tear God away from children in public schools.

That effort has been renewed by an atheist couple in Massachusetts. They are attacking the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance’s “under God” phrase. They claim in their Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court case that, the words are exclusionary to their atheist children and violate their kids’ rights under the Equal Rights Amendment of the Massachusetts Constitution.

One has to understand the full dimension and scale of this nearly sixty plus year assault upon maintaining God in the Pledge of Allegiance which began with infamous atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s frontal assault in the 1940’s and 1950’s. She waged a successful effort to remove prayer from public schools, and assisted the growing effort of the secularization of America. The goal was to create a socialist nation which undermined and removed the basic biblical principles of character and heartland values the nation’s children.

In 2004, 50 years had passed since the adoption of “under God” in the pledge and O’Hair’s war on God in America, when the U.S. Supreme Court took up a case that challenged the phrase. The court ruled unanimously ruled that the phrase “under God” may remain in the Pledge of Allegiance as recited in public school classrooms. Nine years ago, many felt the nation’s heritage of respecting God in the Pledge of Allegiance was safe. It was not.

 

In 2007, just three years later, the Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott filed a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit defending the constitutionality of the Texas Pledge of Allegiance which includes ‘one state under God’. Attorney General Abbott stated then, “Just as it is perfectly constitutional for Texas schoolchildren to pledge their allegiance to ‘one nation under God,’ it is also constitutional for students to pledge their allegiance to ‘one state, under God.” The Texas Attorney General was successful.

 

One has to ask, to what end and for what purpose does removal of God from the state of Texas public schools or from America’s national Pledge of Allegiance or removing his son Jesus Christ from the public square announcing his birth mean?

 

The clear and convincing purpose of atheists and secularists who denounce God and denounce Christ is to extinguish America’s connection to God in our spirit, in our heart, and most importantly in our soul. The purpose is to eradicate God and Christ and the principles and values that they exemplify as if they never existed.

Like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison I believe in the strict separation of Church and State.  People who don't like the words "under God" should just omit them when they recite the Pledge

Marshall Clayton: That was a fantastic comment you put out. Thank you!

Who is the god of America now? I believe this nation was founded a nation under God. That God being Jesus Christ, God's son, God in flesh that died on the cross of Calvary and rose again for our justification.

Although all the people that lived at that time did not look at Him the same way. they all did reverence Him and respect each person and gave them the right to believe as they seen fit.

Even the people that said they did not believe were touched by the God consciousness that was so [powerful in this country at that time. A man that did not even worship would still to some degree, pray and respect the prayers of others.

Although I believe that this country can once again feel the presence of the Holy Spirit again we must first stand up as believers, starting in our believing Churches and exalt His Holy name. Far too long we have set back and allow a little jesus to satisfy us. We need to worship the one that has the power to transform, to cause men to stand up and boldly proclaim Jesus Christ and that without Him men perish in an eternal hell.

We have Christian colleges all across this great country, where are the men and women that they turn out each year. It's something missing and we must get down on our knees and ask our Lord to reveal it to each of us and change as individuals as needed, starting with (me). When I pray and God reveals me something I must change no matter how hard it is to do I must be willing to change, if for no other reason for my country's sake that my grand children can see the same blessings in our local Churches I have seen, have to same privileges I have had and meet the same Jesus Christ I met some years ago.

So I ask again, what God do we serve in this country? If we want the same power and blessing our for fathers had in this land we must seek and serve the same God they walked with. Right now, sad to say the one we serve is not the same, We might call him by the same name but it is not the same God.

There was a man once that said( GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH. Meaning that if I can't have liberty here, I'd rather die and go where I know I have it already. If you my friend don't have something in your life that you will die for , then you really don't have anything to live for, you just can't see it because of the blindness of the heart. Think about this, today all of our politicians have secret service to protect them and that might be a good thing. Little David look at his people one day and said( is there not a cause and he slew the giant when all the men of power were afraid. Maybe we are hiding from the giant. George Washington lead his men to battle and defeated the enemy, we can't even fight because of fear. That fear is not founded in this country, it's stalemated in the city named after Washington a man with courage that was one of those people that wanted liberty or death, not afraid. He was willing to fight for something bigger than himself.

Today most men that that try to fill his political shoes are led by the god of money and not the God that Washington honored. Maybe he looked at things a little different than some but he trusted His Savor to guide his steps.

We have a lot of military men of all ranks that are very willing to fight for the freedom of this country, no matter what the cost to them, even death but the leader we have a different different god that directs their path.

If you put a one in front of many zeros  it gets bigger and bigger.(1000000000000). On the other hand if you put a zero first the one gets smaller and smaller.(000000000000000001). In this country we have way too many zeros in front of the ones. Put God first, we can win.

It seams like we let this go on, and now we are paying for it. As a country who has been blessed and has been a leader in a lot of ways, because of some, some have turned there backs on God and Jesus. We need to get back on track in this and fight to keep this country free.

Well, I will post a comment to this and apologize if it is an old subject.

However, The Knights of Columbus, a Catholic Mens Charitable organization was very instrumental in having those words added to our pledge of allegiance.  It is not something we boast about as it is the same with all our deeds.  I will tell you this though, we are now 100,000 strong in Texas alone, and I don;t know of a member that will not lay down their lives to keep it there.

Ed, yes and that is on again.. those lies are in our face again.. It is all about UN control and Al Gore sits on the sidelines. So far he has made over 100 million from that lie which gave him the Nobel Prize. But should we really respect the present UN? It has a member group that kidnapps children in Southeast Asia for organs and sex trade! I looked it up. We notice that Obama seems to love the UN and their anti-freedom declarations! He should of never been President of a turd!

Comment by Virgil Earl Koon on October 29, 2013 at 4:25pm

Hal, freedom must be for all people and not just Atheists or Muslims. This country was founded by Christians and, by that, they insisted that all faiths,, even the Atheist, have the same rights! But when others insist that freedom of speech does not apply to a community, it is tyranny! People have a right to support what faith they choose!

"Science is not a bad thing, [but] corrupting it with politics can destroy many!"

Global warming, anyone?

Comment by Virgil Earl Koon on October 25, 2013 at 2:44pm

James, I have watched almost every debate on Evolution and never saw any Evolutionist or group of them win! It is all political! I remember a commentator on PBS was told by his superiors, no matter what happens, the Evolutionists won! The debate was with two Biologists and one Dow Chemist! The Chemist said it did not support scientific investigation! He had those two crying! He had their hands tied as they had no where to go! At the end of this the commentator said the Evolutionists had won!?????????????? I was insanely shocked! I caught this idiot on the internet and told he what a liar he was! He bent over backwards in saying he was wrong.. but the damage was already done! I have debated Chemists in England and they lost.. it did not happen! They admitted they could not come against the facts I gave!  Science is not a bad thing, corrupting it with politics can destroy many!

What we all have to bear in mind is that Atheism IS a religion, and it is a religion that the US Government favors, contrary to clear Constitutional instructions, above all others.   The Washington regime has been forcing the issue for so many years now that Atheism, in effect, has already become the "official" de facto religion of the United States.   Atheism has its god, though its followers will never openly admit it.  Their god goes by many names, but the one certain thing we know about this entity is that he is "the father of all lies."    So it is not surprising, to me at least, that members of the Atheist religion insist that they have no god, because, according to them, there is none.   This, of course, is a lie, and this insistence on their part is totally consistent with the fundamental nature of their religion--which they call "Atheism,"----and the god that they follow.   Would you expect the members of a religion whose god is the father of all lies to be truthful?   Since the beginning of civilization many nations have accepted as their god "the father of all lies,"  and have given themselves various names:  Sodom and Gomorrah, the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, to name of few.   They have all ended up the same way:  on the trash-heap of history, after facing ignominious destruction.    I am obviously not a prophet, but it should be clear to most people that  unless America abandons the religion and way of life of Atheism and its god, we are headed for doom.   The United States could fall apart in a moment of time, just as the Soviet Union did, if that is the true God's will.    It all comes down  to the question of are we going to be a God-fearing nation or a godless one.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
