Re: Ch. 4 - The Belief and Unbelief of Abraham Lincoln
Just started this chapter. I found it interesting that Lincoln's draft of The Emancipation Proclamation had no reference to god, yet it was inserted by Chase, who also insinuated his beliefs in the Gettysburg Address and saw to it that our money had a reference to god on it as well. It is very upsetting to see how the religious have been and still are trying to infiltrate such a honest and fair system of government. "In God We Trust" appeared on money in 1864, less than 100 years later, the Pledge saw god sneak his way into a secular pledge.
No more! No Ten Commandments, no faith based initiatives and no amendments with any religious tone! We must say no and not vote for any who forward such agendas!
