    I still have trouble remembering to  insert 'under god' in the Pledge myself and it has been 50 years.

      If I'm in a place where the pledge is said, I say all the rest - except - the two words inserted in 1954.

      I'm with Jefferson & Madison.  There MUST be a total separation of religion and state at ALL times.  Period.

      Anyway, aside from a few ancestors who came here to get away from state-imposed religions, I read all those ancient histories of what happened to lead up to things like that, and the death and destruction and torture can only be avoided if religion is NOT part of government (that's why the 'office of faith-based initiatives needs to be defunded and abolished).

      The Founding Fathers must be spinning in their graves.

      I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
