The Pledge of Allegiance

.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the Unites States of America,

and to the Republic for which it stands;

one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all"

.


.

For over half a century these simple words have been part of this nation's heritage. In recent years there have been several landmark law suits at the State, and Federal level challenging the use of the word God in the Pledge of Allegiance.

.

We, as Americans, firmly believe that the phrase "one nation under God" should remain part of this great document.

.


.

The society was founded in order to provide others of like mind the opportunity to show their support for this phrase. We ask all individuals who believe as we do, to write or e-mail their Congressional Representatives and urge them to protect, preserve and defend these important words. As a nation, we can ill afford to allow a small minority to dictate to the majority the manner in which we express our loyalty to the principles on which this country was founded.

.

The phrase "one nation under God" does not allude to a specific God, it doesn't say “under Buddha”, “under Allah”, “under Odin”, or “In Zeus or Apollo We Trust”, merely God – The God of one’s personal choice. The Constitution of the United States provides the very freedoms that allow a small minority to attempt to undermine the very principles upon which this nation was founded, principles that have served this country well for over two hundred years.

.

Freedom from religious persecution, the right to worship whatever God we believe in without the fear of retaliation, was of foremost concern to our nation’s founding fathers. Of the fifty-five signers of The Declaration of Independence, fifty-two were orthodox, deeply committed Christians, the other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture. It is the same congress that formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation.

.

In 1776, Patrick Henry wrote the following, "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here."

.

These men, drafters of both of this nation’s defining documents, were men of Christian principles, that is to say that they believed in the teachings demonstrated by Jesus of Nazareth, such as; love, kindness, humility, etc. These precepts, along with the tenets found in the Ten Commandments, are in our estimation a pretty good set of standards upon which to create a nation. Without guidelines such as these, where would our nation be today, and what type of history would it have?

.

American history, as taught from current day textbooks, presents us with a plethora of pertinent facts about our nation's founding fathers, facts such as; date of birth, date of death, their spouse and children's names, major accomplishments, etc. Many were landowners as well as slaveholders, while others had occupations as printers, pharmacists, shop keepers, clerics and so on, yet all were dedicated to creating a nation. Less known is the fact that many of these men were also members of the Masonic Lodge , and organization rooted in Christian beliefs and principles.

.

Of the fifty-six signers of The Declaration of Independence, fifteen were Freemasons or probable Freemasons, eight of the fifteen were known masons: Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Joseph Hewes, William Hooper, Robert Treat Payne, Richard Stockton, George Walton, and William Whipple. Known Freemasons among the signers of The Constitution were: Gunning Bedford Jr., John Blair, David Brearly, Jacob Broom, Daniel Carrol, John Dickinson, Benjamin Franklin, Rufus King, and George Washington.

.

We're sure that none of members of the First Continental Congress had a problem invoking God's name in either their public or personal daily life.
