In GOD We Trust

One Nation, Under GOD

Our founding fathers used the teaching in the Bible to set our first bill of rights and laws.

umm... while the founders were very clear in their belief that a higher moral authority and "God" should be used as guidance in the affairs of the nation, the use of "God" by them has nothing to do with any one religion - especially the religion whose power and control they sought to escape.

"under God" was added in the 1950s during a very dark period in American history.

While obviously they descended from a Christian continent (Europe), most of the major founders were decidedly Deist or otherwise.

Please study the subject matter rather than regurgitating already disproven propaganda. There is a very well-funded campaign underway to rewrite American history to make it appear that they founded a Christian nation.

It is very disingenuous and, frankly, unethical to play so loose with recorded history.

Thank you.
