Pledge of Allegiance to USA

As many of you are aware, the Knights of Columbus submitted to congress that the words “Under God” should be added to our pledge of allegiance. Both Houses of Congress passed the law and it was signed by President Eisenhower in 1954. The information below was based on a poll taken by NBC on what percentage should keep the words in our pledge verses the percent who want it removed

IF you read this and agree that “under God ” should be left in the pledge, then just forward it to others and you have voted for it to be left in. If you delete it and don’t forward it you are voting NO to “under God.” Easy huh!
Official versions (changes in bold italics ) 1892.

“I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.”

1892 to 1923
“I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the
republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.”
1923 to 1924
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the
United States and to the republic for
which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty
and justice for all.”
1924 to 1954
“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.”
1954 to Present
“I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America , and to the republic
for which it stands, one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Shock to NBC

This is not sent for discussion. If you agree, forward it… If  you don’t, delete it. I don’t want to know one way or the other. By my forwarding it, you know how I feel. Do you believe that the word God should stay in American culture ?

NBC this morning had a poll on this question. They had the highest Number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the Percentage was the same as this:

86% to keep the words , IN God We Trust and God in the Pledge of Allegiance,

14% against.

That is a pretty ‘commanding’ public response. I was asked to send this on if I agreed or delete if I didn’t. Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe the word God should stay. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having ‘In God We Trust’ on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Why is the world catering to this 14%?

AMEN!

In God We Trust
