#ThreadReaderApp: “One Nation, Under God” so...let’s think about this for a moment. The #AntiAbortion position those of us take who are have incorruptible patriotism and believe in the Almighty Father. Whether OR not YOU believe in God, our Founding Fathers did and
our country was founded on the fact that God exists. I can guarantee He is #ProLIFE Period. No debate. All the lame arguments (@BernieSanders @SenSanders @Alyssa_Milano @krassenstein et al) about #abortion being a constitutional right is so ridiculous because it lacks merit.
TIME and again that is provable. The founding fathers and FIRST knew evil would seek to destroy. They knew it’s always #SpiritualWarfare and acknowledged everyone’s right and dare I say RESPONSIBILITY to protect their own.
Link to resource at the end where you can read the whole article - “There seems to be a rather fashionable idea floating around at the moment that we are not a nation founded "under God," and that the Pledge of Allegiance is therefore unconstitutional
because it has those two words in it. Throughout the Revolutionary War, under the Articles of Confederation, during the Constitutional Convention, and as the First Congress met--the same Congress that passed the First Amendment--our government collectively and as individuals
used language that shows what the Framers of our government considered appropriate as part of official duties and documents. Some of this language is an expression of Christianity. Very true--much like the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance today.
The claim that these two words in the Pledge are unconstitutional requires us to assume that the Framers of our Constitution intended the First Amendment to make some sweeping change from everything that they had stood for, during the Revolution,
under the Articles of Confederation gov’t, during the Constitutional Convention, & in the First Congress. Delaware's Constitutional Convention's on 9/6/1776, modified a statement required of ALL House members:

The Convention met. On Motion of Mr. McKean: Resolved unanimously...
That the following Words be added to the Profession of Faith made by the Members of this House respectively, to wit, "And I do acknowledge the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by divine Inspiration." [Assembly of the Lower Counties on Delaware 1770-1776]
From the dark days of the Revolution, the Continental Congress wrote these words:

Mr. W Livingston, pursuant to leave granted, brought in a resolution for appointing a fast, which (being taken into consideration) was agreed to as follows:
In times of impending calamity and distress; when the liberties of America are imminently endangered by the secret machinations and open assaults of an insidious and vindictive administration, it becomes the indispensable duty of these hitherto free and happy colonies,
with true penitence of heart, and the most reverent devotion, publickly to acknowledge the over ruling providence of God; to confess and deplore our offences against him; and to supplicate his interposition for averting the threatened danger, and prospering our strenuous efforts
in the cause of freedom, virtue, and posterity.

The Congress, therefore, considering the warlike preparations of the British Ministry to subvert our invaluable rights and privileges, and to reduce us by fire and sword, by the savages of the wilderness, and our own domestics,
to the most abject and ignominious bondage: Desirous, at the same time, to have people of all ranks and degrees duly impressed with a solemn sense of God's superintending providence, and of their duty, devoutly to rely, in all their lawful enterprizes, on his aid and direction,
Do earnestly recommend, that Friday, the 17th day of May next, be observed by the said colonies as a day of humiliation, fasting, and prayer; that we may, with united hearts, confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions, and, by a sincere repentance and amendment
of life, appease his righteous displeasure, and, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain his pardon and forgiveness; humbly imploring his assistance to frustrate the cruel purposes of our unnatural enemies; and by inclining their hearts to justice and
benevolence, prevent the further effusion of kindred blood. But if, continuing deaf to the voice of reason and humanity, and inflexibly bent, on desolation and war, they constrain us to repel their hostile invasions by open resistance, that it may please the Lord of Hosts,
the God of Armies, to animate our officers and soldiers with invincible fortitude, to guard and protect them in the day of battle, and to crown the continental arms, by sea and land, with victory and success:
Earnestly beseeching him to bless our civil rulers, and the representatives of the people, in their several assemblies and conventions; to preserve and strengthen their union, to inspire them with an ardent, disinterested love of their country; to give wisdom and stability to
their counsels; and direct them to the most efficacious measures for establishing the rights of America on the most honourable and permanent basis--That he would be graciously pleased to bless all his people in these colonies with health and plenty, and grant that a spirit of
incorruptible patriotism, and of pure undefiled religion, may universally prevail; and this continent be speedily restored to the blessings of peace and liberty, and enabled to transmit them inviolate to the latest posterity. And it is recommended to Christians of all
denominations, to assemble for public worship, and abstain from servile labour on the said day.[Journals of the Continental Congress, 1774-1789, Saturday, March 16, 1776, pp. 208-209]

Sounds like faith in God and fear of the Lord Jesus Christ.
