To God or not to God??

“Please raise your right hand and repeat after me: I “your name ” solemnly  swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth  so help me?????”

Americas founding fathers based their newly formed nation on God and his laws. God was in all aspect of our beloved country. From School morning prayers to  swearing-in  the elected officials. God was  in the driver seat. As the years went by God was slowly pushed away. School prayer  challenged and deemed  offensive,  and was taken out. Yes God was obsolete. Even though  obsolete, He is still around, or is He????

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Air Force officials say they’re changing their policy on enlistment oaths and will allow airmen to omit the words “so help me God” if they choose.

The decision comes after an airman at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada struck out the words on his Department of Defense reenlistment paperwork and ran up against a policy that prohibits omissions.

The case went up to the Department of Defense General Counsel, which issued an opinion Wednesday saying the language could be left out if the airman preferred.

Attorney Monica Miller of the American Humanist Association is representing the airman, who she says has requested anonymity for fear of retaliation.

Miller says the airman was told by his commanders Aug. 25 that he must swear to God or leave the Air Force.

Make no mistake God is under fire in America. It took a legal challenge of “ONE” person to topple the school prayer, and opened a way for future assault on God and his people. And the battle continues……..
