Why because its the current fashion trend? I dont believe so.....I voted no because it has been a part of our country since its inception. If he doesnt like it, too bad. Im tired of people being offended all the fucking time. Get a thicker skin if you cant handle it.
Just like with the minority bitching about Christmas. Christmas is just that, the celebrations of Christ's birth get over it. Current years are marked by it. We have a Federal Holiday to recognize it. Dont like it, STFU no one is shoving it down your throat to believe.
Here is the breakdown of the oath. Its fitting and understandable. HAve a great day!!
So Help Me God
Controversy over the separation of church and state sometimes clouds this final phrase; nevertheless, it is the most important one in the oath. Our actions have moral and, for those who believe in a Supreme Being, even religious implications. Sometimes military officers seem hesitant to embrace their religion publicly or acknowledge the significance of divine guidance.37 However, American history is replete with examples of public appeals to a higher being for guidance and protection. The Declaration of Independence includes an appeal “to the Supreme Judge of the world,” and, although the Constitution does not include the phrase so help me God
in the president’s oath, Washington added those words when he took the first oath.38 President Lincoln openly addressed the concept of divine guidance in the Gettysburg address: “This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom.” When the pledge of allegiance added the phrase “under God” in 1953, President Dwight Eisenhower commented, “In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s most powerful resource in peace and war.”39
