So there is a lawsuit filed by none other than Michael Newdow to remove the 'Under God' to remove the phrase "so help me God" from the oath because the Constitution does not require its statement and the phrase possibly violates the Establishment Clause.
Now the populi en-masse has the cringed reaction to this. Should Mr.Obama be ostracized by pulling the phrase and offend most of the country ? Or should he dedicate his time and talent trying to save the value of our money that the God we trust in hasn't been able to save ? I would rather have him do the later. We can save the lawsuit for the second term. Let the guy do what we elected him for.
The gut reaction that many God fearing people have is that if we remove Under God then what should we replace it with ? Canada ? One nation under Canada ? Sounds OK by me.
Or alternatively the atheists should insist that we take not just the pronoun God but the actual name of God as given in the Bible (lets give the Christians this one since Christianity is the most popular religion in the U.S. of A.). What is the name of God you say ? Its Jealous. The Bible is the actual word of God and if God says ,like he does in
Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God .
Note that the Hebrew translation, for once, is accurate. Look up the words 'shem' and 'qanna' for more information.
I think I just made you go GODDANGIT. Or rather JealousDangit !
