Is "In G-d We Trust" Next?
So now the Supreme Court has to decide whether to leave G-d in the classrooms of American public schools!
Ever since 1954 American schoolchildren have directed their daily morning pledge of allegiance to the U.S. as "one nation, under G-d". My generation made the original pledge written in 1892 without reference to the Deity, but the Cold War with Russia sparked a lobby by religious leaders to insert a mention of G-d in order to underscore the difference between religion-based democracy and atheistic communism.
But now a California atheist is arguing a case before the Supreme Court that this pledge is pushing religion on his 9-year old daughter and other children in violation of the division between church and state.
One can only wonder whether the next move of ultraliberals in the USA will be to challenge the motto of "In G-d We Trust" which appears on American currency.
By the way, did you ever stop to think that such problems dont exist in Israel? The determined secular effort to keep any mention of G-d out of Israels Declaration of Independence, which left it with only an ambiguous reference to the "Rock of Israel", is echoed in the absence of any mention of G-d in the classrooms or on the currency.
Perhaps the time has come for the enemies of religion in our midst to realize that only by returning to the ancient Jewish motto of "In G-d We Trust" can we guarantee Israel forever.
