Debunking The Religious Right – The ‘You WILL BE Christians Or You Won’t Be Real Americans’ Edition – ‘Alabama chief justice cites Pledge of Allegiance to show courts need God to function’

The FOunding Fathers put a reference to religion, i.e. God, exactly twice.

Once in the First Amendment :

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”;

And then……Article 6, Section 3 :

“but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States”.

If you want to be a Christian, #1 read the Bible and actually follow the teachings of Jesus and #2 – be a Christian.

But keep your God out of OUR Government.

‘Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore made that claim at the Pierce County Prayer Breakfast in Tacoma, Washington in May while discussing the addition of “under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance’.

‘The chief justice said Americans had forgotten that there was no comma between “one nation” and “under God” in the Pledge’.

“When we say the Pledge, we say ‘I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation’ and we pause,” he remarked. “They didn’t mean for us to pause, ladies and gentlemen, and that pause has cost us a lot.”

Justice Moore mentions Thomas Jefferson’s ‘bill for religious freedom’.

Jefferson makes very clear – God has nothing to do with our Government :

“no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief, but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of Religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities.”

“It has cost a lot because we have forgotten that God is intimately connected with this nation,” Moore continued. “Without God there would be no nation. Without God there would be no freedom to believe what you want. That goes all the way back to people like Thomas Jefferson in his bill for religious freedom. He knew what it meant. He knew the limits of civil government, and he knew who gave us that freedom to believe what we want about God, but it comes from God.”
