US Army Posts “Under God,” Atheists Complain
The US Army 3rd Infantry Regiment — better known as The Old Guard — recently posted a US Army graphic by SPC Taylor Lutheran to Facebook which combined a photograph of President Obama at the Tomb of the Unknowns with a flag and the phrase “One Nation Under God:”
The image ended up irritating both “sides of the aisle,” as critics of President Obama questioned his acknowledgement of God, and critics of religion questioned the association of a military unit with the word “God,” despite its quotation from the US Pledge of Allegiance.
A few of Michael “Mikey” Weinstein’s acolytes in the MRFF were apoplectic, claiming that the Facebook post violated the law.
Remember, too, that this was posted by the Army unit that guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. The massive marble sarcophagus is engraved with the words “known but to God.”
The MRFF and other militant secularists would probably like to sandblast that off the monument, as well.
It is a sad — but by no means new — state of affairs when men are so afraid of God they try to blank his name from public view. Fortunately, the US Constitution was written to prevent just such government interference with religion — though the enforcement of that protection is sometimes spotty.
In the end, though, those secularists and anti-God activists will not only see the name of God, they’ll answer to God Himself. Hopefully, before that day they’ll come to realize God’s love, or they may be denied by Him who they denied.
There’s a better way to spend this life — and eternity.
