Our Very Own Washington (D) State Rep. Doesn't Believe in God?
April 29, 2004
Duh. So if you hadn't heard, I know it made the network news, our very own US Representative from Washington state Jim McDermott has been under fire since he left out the phrase "Under God" while leading the pledge of allegience on the House floor. While many are charging that he deliberately left those two words out, McDermott has claimed it was an accident to be blamed on the fact that when he learned the pledge, the words "under God" hadn't been yet added (they were added in 1954). In addition, a McDermott spokesperson noted that he was apprehensive about including a reference to God since the Supreme Court is currently reviewing a lower court ruling about the unconstitutionality of those two words being said in schools. Okay now wait a minute, did he forget the words, or was he worried about a pending court case. Which one is it? I'm a little confused here.
Jim, Jim, Jim, just tell the truth buddy. No need to dance around the issue. You forgot those two llittle words on purpose and that's okay. Let's just all be honest with ourselves here. Washington is a liberal state, you're a liberal, lots of liberals are anti-God (no not all), what say we connect those dots eh? I mean, Christians are all in uproar about this, I can somewhat understand their sentiment, but I'd rather have people just put the truth right on out there so everyone can see instead of hiding behind this facade of actually giving a care. I mean, let's just keep it real folks.
