Speech and religion

On July 4, most of us celebrate because we are proud.

On July 4, most of us celebrate because we are proud.

In public gatherings, we pledge allegiance to our flag; in that pledge, we say “one nation under God.”

On every piece of currency is “In God We Trust.”

The U.S. was built on a belief in God. Many of us fought and died for our freedoms. Yet some want to eliminate these references because they don’t believe.

I have fought for our freedoms and I have the right to use God’s name.

For those who don’t believe, how can you spend money marked “In God We Trust?”

Changing any of this should be put to a vote, and if voters are true to their country, it would never pass.

If anyone does not want God mentioned, you need to find another place.
