Good politicians should never let an opportunity for compromise go to waste.
I think the Governor of Massachusetts should settle with the Atheists from Acton.
Here’s the deal.
They’re arguing the words “under God” were only put there in 1954, so they should be removed.
In 1962, twenty-two words were taken from the schools; so in my view, this is our best chance to put them back.
Here they are:
Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country.
Remember, the word “God” has a different meaning for each child reciting such a prayer.
For example, to a Jew, God is Yahweh.
To a Christian, God is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
To a Muslim, God is Allah.
To an Atheist, well, that’s easy, God is him/her self.
Why wouldn’t said “self” want good things for parents, teachers, and country?
Check out the statistics in this article below, regarding our nation’s children since prayer has been removed from the public schools.
Could it be that Atheists have another God…with horns?
