I recently came across the following article and wondered about the question. Why have we stopped following the ONLY being known too man that is truly GOOD. A name unlike any other, which embodies only sound peaceful true love qualities in a person. And yet for some reason it has become omitted from a phrase which demands us to come clean, and be TRUTHFUL!

You decide…

This is by a daughter of a murdered couple in Raytown, MO, who had a Bible and Bookstore on 63rd street.

She says: “When I had to testify at the murder trial of my parents a week ago, I was asked to raise my right hand. The bailiff started out, “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?”

I stood there and waited but she said nothing. She said “Do you?”

I was so stunned I blurted out “What happened to ‘so help me God?’ “

She came back with “Do you?”

I replied yes, but I was perplexed.

Then the judge said. “You can say that if you want to.”

I stopped, raised my right hand and finished with: “So help me God!”

I told my son and daughter that when it came time for them to testify, they should do the same.

I don’t know what can be done about it but it’s time for us to step up and DO something.

NBC this morning had a poll on this question. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls and the percentage was the same as this:

86% to keep the words, 14% against…

That is a pretty ‘commanding’ public response. I was asked to send this on if I agreed …. or delete if I didn’t.

Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.

Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having ‘In God We Trust’ on our money and having God in The Pledge of Allegiance. Why is America– our nation — catering to this 14%? YES, WHY??
