“In God We Trust” has not always been the Motto, nor has it always been on our money.
Nor was “under god” in the pledge for many years until it was added to fight communism. I believe “God” is again being used to manipulate the masses, a kind of slight of hand trick one could say. The GOP saying “Look Over There” while they do nothing about the 25 million Americans out of work and the world economy threatening to come down on all of our heads.
While thousands of good Americans are Occupying our public areas in hope of bringing about change, Congress is looking the other way and talking about an invisible being none of them can prove is even real. If we “God” was to be trusted would we be in this mess? Why waist time on reaffirming something already there if not to distract from the real issues, that congress is in the pockets of the 1% and that our government is for sale?
I am a Military wife. I love my country, I adore my husband and am so thankful to him for his 13 years of service so far. It isn’t always easy, specially when our constitution is being abused by the government that should support it.
Our Constitution states that government shall ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ So wouldn’t “In God we Trust” we a law of establishment? No they do not say what God, but we know what they mean and how they are using it. It is pathetic. I neither trust your Invisible friend, and these days I don’t feel like I can trust many of his followers who rather point at him than do as his so called “son” commanded and actually help their neighbors. I guess though they only think they need to help the Neighbors in their 1% neighborhoods?
I have zero respect for anyone who says they are a follower of “Jesus” and in the same breath will not support public health care and support for those who can’t help themselves. He said you should not judge, but to help. Walk the walk, don’t just talk the talk as the rest of us can see right through you. Not everyone is a sheeple.
