For some reason I could not reply under the original post about the pledge of allegiance so I had to start a new post. My first question is why in the world are you replying to me about a response I sent to Lenny? Had you taken the time to read my post you would see by the way that it started that it was intended for him. But now that you have me on the topic of reading and understanding let me continue. I read several of your posts and this time you did put the correct president, Eisenhower not FDR. From the articles I read it was not necessarily an endorsement of only the christian faith but recognition of the almighty. Reference my right to run up and down the streets reciting the pledge, I invite you to get your reading glasses and read the article again. If the court decision is upheld childern in 9 western states would no longer be allowed to recite the Pledge of Allegience in school. As far as spliting hairs on the actual name I am not even going to get into the religous discussion in depth other than to say read the bible. So please, the next time before you assume, take the time to read.
