“GOD” Is it a controversy over a belief or just a fucking word?

We hear a lot of stories from folks personally offended about how our country is going to hell because we are taking god out of our schools and out of our communities and out of our families and that this has been a big contribution to the damnation of our society in the US.  These stories make me feel connected and part of something bigger than just an economy. 

Why can’t kids say the Pledge of Allegiance  in school just because it contains the word god?  I grew up saying the Pledge of Allegiance  and it made me feel like I was  apart of something, a proud country, a strong allegiance, SAFE.  I don’t ever remember feeling necessarily like a Christian when I said the Pledge.  Are we making too much of a word?  To some the word God means a belief in a religion, and to some it’s just a fucking symbol that represents “tradition”. 

If you don’t believe in god, the Pledge of the Allegiance and US money, and the oath you take on the bible at court should still represent a traditional symbol of loyalty and honor whether you’re putting your hand over your heart or on a book to swear to tell the truth!  In this mighty United States of America, the melting fucking pot of the world, the traditional gestures and/or pronouncements should still mean something to everyone in one way or another whether or not you are Christian and should remain as long-standing traditions just the way they fucking are! 

So, pick your battles, people, there are much more dangerous fucking things threatening our US society right now than worrying about where and when the WORD god is being used!  It’s a fucking word that means something very different to many different people, and if we can’t grasp a realistic understanding of that, then we are no different from the religious extremist sustaining the wars in the fucking middle east in the name of their ALA!!!
