Actually, the addition of god to the pledge happened in 1954.on our money, in the pledge, in every state of the union address since the beginning of time??
In god we trust was added to our coins in 1864 but was not made the official motto until 1956.
The oath of office does NOT contain the words, "so help me god."
When a politician says "god bless..." they are just pandering to those who don't understand the meaning of the phrase "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
