Democratic Government in the US may not hold with secularist beliefs.<quoted text>
We've had a slow erosion of our pure secularist roots ever since we became a country --
March 4, 1789 - secular U.S. government established.
June 7, 1797 -“The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion”~ unanimously approved by the Senate and signed by President John Adams
1863 - President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of Thanksgiving
1870 - Christmas was declared a federal holiday by Congress
1881 - Chester A. Arthur swearing in ceremony is the first documented response of "so help me god" (not a part of the official oath of office).
1890 - "The Bible and the Church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in the way of women's emancipation." ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton
April 17, 1952 - President Harry S. Truman signed a bill proclaiming a National Day of Prayer must be declared by each following president at an appropriate date of his choice.(In 1988, the law was amended so that the National Day of Prayer would be held on the first Thursday of May.)
June 14, 1954 - "God" was added to the pledge, changing us from “one nation indivisible” into one nation divided by god.
July 30, 1956 - "God" was added as our national motto and officially put on our money (I still prefer "e pluribus unum" - out of many we become one).
August 27, 1987 –“No, I don't know that atheists should be regarded as citizens, nor should they be regarded as patriotic. This is one nation under God.”~ George H. W. Bush
