God bless him.
Rest in Peace. And let’s hope that the politically correct crowd doesn’t force God out of the pledge by going to court on this.
R.I.P and God Bless America.
You should see the sick things they are saying over at DU. These people simply have no shame.
God bless him.
I can’t go there without feeling physically ill.
It’s atrocious what some people post on that site.
His job was well done. May he rest in peace.
Please read, and remember, this tagline.
“The libs have been trying to do this for years. Here’s Red Skelton in 1969.
Red and the Pledge”
Thanks for posting. It is always good to hear this.

Satan is alive and well. But we will win.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.
That’s how I recite the pledge, too. Deo Vindice.
Rest in peace.
With or without the “under God” phrase, the Pledge is a statist screed written and promulgated by socialists and has no place in a free America.
Seeing row upon row of obedient children chanting away has always given me the creeps. There is no daylight between little schoolkids chanting the Pledge in first grade and the Obama Youth hip-hopping away in military fatigues on YouTube a couple months ago.
Anyone who thinks I’m blaspheming needs to learn about Francis Bellamy’s allegiances and philosophies. I guarantee you’ll view the Pledge in an entirely different light. There is nothing conservative about the Pledge.
(Please note that I said *RAT* hell...not the real one)
Yes it was. He was my pastor growing up. And I am confident now that he is with his Lord.
I know about Bellamy, and have read his book (I forget the title). It amuses me no end to think about how the pledge was transformed from what he intended.
“It amuses me no end to think about how the pledge was transformed from what he intended.”
Indeed. I’ve read it too and those that think the Pledge is something awful need to reexamine their motives.
RIP to you, sir, you have done a good job, it is up to us to continue onward with what you started and to preserve what you done. We are in a world of hurt so it will be hard work. May God Bless you and welcome you in His arms.
Whoops. Okay, I admit it — I’m a spy from D.U. [blush]
