Thought of the day

So many dolts are more than happy to believe that it’s okay to demand the president lead the nation in prayer or that “under God” is historical, not religious in nature. Yet it remains:

  • 1952 – National Day of Prayer
  • 1952 – National Prayer Breakfast
  • 1954 – “under God” added to the Pledge
  • 1956 – “In God We Trust” becomes national motto

U.S. politicians did not suddenly become interested in the Christian history of the U.S. in the 50’s – if they did, they would have realized that we are not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion. No. Instead they were merely gathering votes by fostering a favorable atmosphere for religion – one filled with fear and rhetoric. It all entirely connects to the Second Red Scare: say those evil commies hate God and that’s going to be a big boom to the political well being of the dominate religion.
