So Help Me God!
Well, it sure as Hell isn’t… So Help Me Allah!!!
This is by a daughter of a murdered couple in Raytown, MO who had a Bible and Bookstore on 63rd Street. She says:
When I had to testify at the murder trial of my parents a week ago, I was asked to raise my right hand. The bailiff started out “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?”
I stood there and waited but she said nothing. She said “Do you?”
I was so stunned I blurted out “What happened to “so help me God’?”
She came back with “Do you?” I replied yes, but I was perplexed.
Then the judge said. “You can say that if you want to.”
I stopped, raised my right hand, and finished with “So help me God!”
I told my son and daughter that when it came time for them to testify, they should do the same.
I don’t know what can be done about it, but it’s time for us to step up and DO something.
NBC this morning had a poll on this question.. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the percentage was the same as this:
86%to keep the words, 14% against. That is a pretty ‘commanding’ public response.
I was asked to send this on if I agreed or delete if I didn’t.
Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God.
Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having “In God We Trust” on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Why is the world catering to this 14%?
In God We Trust
