Banning the Star Spangled Banner! Are you serious?

I have just about had enough of democratic left wing liberal reformists abusing the rights of the people and attempting to destroy the foundation of what makes this country great, just to satisfy an agenda that could ultimately jeopardize national security.

I first took notice of these subtle yet defining attempts to change our nations traditions when the current President of the United States refused to cover his heart and face the flag or take the pledge of allegiance!

Now there is the 'unofficial' change to the Pledge of Allegiance with the silent replacement of the words 'Under God' replaced with 'Under Law'! The words 'Under God' were implemented under President Eisenhower to separate the United States from other countries 'way of life'.

The original Pledge:
"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The official Pledge, June 22, 1942
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The only official change to the Pledge, June 14, 1954
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The 'unofficial' left wing change.
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under Law, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

There are some schools that have now banned students from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance with the words 'Under God' so that no-one is offended by the american way of life!

This morning I heard that Goshen College in Indiana has just banned the playing of the United States Nation Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner because the lyrics are offensive, the words 'bombs bursting in air' are too violent!

Are you kidding me?

These words were penned by Francis Scott Key during the Battle of Baltimore, a turning point of the War of 1812. In the defense of Baltimore's Ft McHenry, American forces repulsed a sea invasion and killed the commander of the invading British army forces. It was during this battle that the poem at the time called the 'Star Spangled Banner' was written and serves as a reminder to ALL Americans that we fought for our freedom and will continue to fight for it.

Every American should take offense to subversive interference or gestures by left wing liberalists who attempt to change what Americans have fought for and continue to fight for including our freedoms that make this country the greatest country in the world.

If you don't like the American way of life, LEAVE!

  3. I disagree -- I like the version without the "under God" part. Our government and society change over time. There was lots of stuff we did in our founding father's times that we are right not to do anymore. There are things that might have seemed appropriate in the 40's that are not anymore.

    Lets keep "God" out of our government.

  4. Really? This great nation was populated and founded by people seeking religious freedom. "God" is a generic term, as all but a few religions emphasize Peace and Mutual respect as the dominant theme. Many a Man and Women has prayed to a "God" when placed in harms way to defend the rights of the people of this great nation. This Country affords you the Right to be a non believer. I respect your opinion. Thank God most people don't agree with you.
