It was to appease you brain-dead types, you silly!

You idiots who grovel after your god, are so easily placated.

But didn't you know? The US Supreme Court ruled that "in god we trust" has ZERO religious meaning, that it's just a motto!

Meaning? The word "god" in "in god we trust" is not about the god YOU worship at all!

Ain't that nice-- you've been worshiping a false god all this time...!

LOL!
Again that's so you guys won't cry about it since you cry for everything. Bwahaha! Did they rule that in our pledge too?

Well... because of stupid people such as YOU, that's why.

Duuuh.

Stupid people like you, actually believe politicians when they get all religious and sh7t.

Seriously! You idiots actually believe the majority of politicians worship the same way YOU do!

And that is so very funny, it literally makes me laugh out loud.

You people are too easy to fool. It's that Fox News you keep watching-- it has been shown to literally damage your ability to see reason.

Sad.
Yet we are still the majority and you're not.

You think they would step up to the republican side should he run?

I only vote in an attempt to bring in a third party to a two party system. I am sure that there are some, if not most Libertarians that would vote for him though.

Maybe the constitution but not our government. i mean why do we use two bibles to inaugurate the president? Why do we have God in the pledge? Why do we have God on our money? Why are most politicians religious? Because secular is a word that makes you think that our government is that way.
We have God on the Pledge because insecure, fear-mongering people like you put it there to scare American citizens during the MaCarthy communism nonsense. It was not there in the beginning, nor was in God we trust on our money for 150 years. History is evidently not your strong point. Read and learn:

Between 1924 and 1954, the Pledge of Allegiance was worded:

"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."

In 1954, during the McCarthy era and communism scare, Congress passed a bill, which was signed into law, to add the words "under God." The current Pledge reads:

"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."
http://www.religioustolerance.org/nat_pled1.h...

and:

The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country.

In its original form it read:

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:

"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."
In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today. Bellamy's daughter objected to this alteration. Today it reads:

"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."

As far as on money:
During the height of the cold war, on July 11, 1955, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Public Law 140 making it mandatory that all coinage and paper currency display the motto.

It's not a majority when there are 39,000 different sects of Christianity, all of whom you say are not 'real' Christians and damn to hell because they don't believe as you do.

Should you sit down and talk to each of our Congressmen, you'd condemn them to hell too. The broad brush 'Christian' is just to fool yourselves into thinking you are a majority, when in truth, you are each a minority. But all of you have the same type of learning disability.

They are theists and they still believe so they are the majority. It like not all non believers are really atheists, you have Buddhist which is a religion, agnostic, etc... The fool is you.

Again a lay opinion. It doesn't matter what you say, it's still there whether you like it or not. Our own president, senators, congressman, governors, and mayors are religious. So good luck with what you believe. Secular? I think not.

And numbers are validity, right?

The followers of Hitler and other leaders thought he was right, too. The numbers said so.

Using numbers is really the lamest of all reasons to believe that Christianity is correct. First of all, 2/3 of the world population says you're wrong. Secondly, every sect of your own religion outside the one you belong to says you're wrong and going to hell for it. If numbers count, the sect of Christianity to which you belong is not that of a 'true' Christian.

You want to use numbers to back up your belief but when it comes down to Christians all believing the same thing, they don't. Most of them don't even use Jesus as a guide, but give Paul the status of God. Ask any Christian what Jesus said on a controversial subject and you'll get a quote from Paul. Every single time.

So if you want to use numbers, go ahead. By the standards of most other Christians, you're headed straight to the pits of hell.
