"One Nation..."

"...Under God"? No more offensive to me than "Under Christ", "Under Allah", "Under Buddah", "Under Zeus", "Under [insert divine entity here]", etc. - but equally unconstitutional. I could understand if it was "Under Washington", "Under Franklin", or some other founding father, but why does it have to be religous? Ah well, who cares about religious freedom anyway?

I just came across this article on whitehouse.gov. Here are two notable quotes from our commander in chief regarding religious freedom: "The right to have religious beliefs and to freely practice such beliefs are among the most fundamental freedoms we possess" and later: "IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifteenth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand three". So according to George W. Bush we should all celebrate our freedom to choose one of the many branches of Christianity as our religion.
