I fail to understand how this great country of ours is constantly attacked by civil liberties groups, in an attempt to abolish all forms of God from all government institutions, or anything that is government subsidized, like our public schools.

The oath of office to be sworn in with, at most government posts, whether is be legislative or judicial ends in "So help me God", including the office of the President of the United States. This is meant and used as a legally binding factor to hold them legally accountable for their actions while in office. Shall we remove this ending from the oath and just take a chance that they will do the best that they can, because they are such a nice person? When we are in a court of law, should we not ask a witness who is about to give testimony to swear under oath, "The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth", and then not add "So help me God", which is meant to hold them accountable to a higher authority as well as the court?

While we are at it, shall we burn all the U.S. currency and re-mint every coin so that we can remove the phrase "In God We Trust"? Since the birth of our nation our country has always been deeply rooted with God interwoven throughout it as a way of life; personally, publicly, fraternally and throughout our government. Our relationship with God in our government is a character trait as patriotic as any other identifying mark that you can associate our United States of America with as a trait of who we are.

George Washington once said, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. Do not ever let anyone claim to be a true American patriot it they ever attempt to separate Religion from politics." Most historians regard George Washington as one of our greatest leaders. Could George Washington have felt this way, and knew something then that we now regard as useless and intrusive in our land of the free, and home of the brave? What are we coming to in this great land when some people and organizations go out of their way in an attempt to wipe out any mention or form of God in our government that has been interwoven there and is our way of history and life for America?
