How did they do it?

Quite remarkable that this nation fought and won World War II (as well as WWI) bravely and valiantly without the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.

In 1962 JFK concluded his speech to the nation about the grave nuclear missile crisis in Cuba with these words: Thank you and good night.”

In 2001 GWB concluded his speech to the nation on the day after 9/11 with these words: “As we have been assured, image009 (2)neither death nor life, nor angles nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height or depth, can separate us from God’s love. May he bless the souls of the departed. May he comfort our own. And may he always guide our country. God bless America.”

  1. Ah, the things that “charitable” organizations like the Knights of Columbus can do with lobbying money and a compliant president (Eisenhower) can do to help destroy the separation of church and state.

    • Eisenhower to his eternal disgrace held his fire until his last days in office. During eight years he failed to speak out about McCarthy. He allowed the raging fear of ‘godless communism’ taking over the solar system to infect the culture. And when those fine old fellows at the K of C got that line put into the pledge, he said not a word. But his greatest sin (and Ike was a really fine person) was keeping his lips sealed about the ‘miitary industrial complex’ taking over the country. He saw it, he enabled it, and he kept his mouth closed until it was too late.
