Has "Under God" Been Reduced to Vandalism?
Our Pledge of Allegiance used to be "One Nation Indivisible" until a few years later when they added "under God" to it to "fight" the commies. Of course, if you know about the history of the original pledge, it was written by a socialist. It was also written after the Civil War when our nation was still recovering and "One Nation Indivisible" was added to sort of heal that divide. The irony is that part has been divided by "Under God." I feel that there was also a side agenda in the 50's to give some red meat to the racists to make them feel a little bit better about their efforts to divide the nation over slavery and adding "Under God" between "One Nation Indivisible." Atheists like blacks, women, and gays are hated by the rightwingers and any way they can further divide America, they will do. "Under God" will always be literal graffiti (see above) and vandalism as long as it's in the Pledge, and that needs to be taken out ASAP.
