He’s probably a communist but to be fair, he’s old enough to remember the original version without that part and was probably used to saying it that way in school.

There's a day of reckoning coming for human filth like Harry Reid and his ilk............

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

That’s because the Pledge was not written by Cowboy Poets.

That makes him anti-Christian (using the Dems own playbook rules). He’s a Christophobe (just like those who question isam are “islamophobes”).

It sounds like he’s making an historic reference, in which case, “under God” was not in the Pledge back then.

Two things: he is probably referring to when he said it as a kids, 150 yrs ago and as a Mormon he would have to say “under gods”.

Harry Reid Omits "Under God" While Citing Pledge Of Allegiance

You worry too much, Harry. Don't you remember that Masons have already pledged not to be bound by any other oath except to the Masons? You need to sign up for a remedial course at the Lodge - you'll sleep better.

Reid is older than myself. Under God was NOT in the Pledge for my first 7 years of school. And I’m not sure if all schools added it immediately.

Harry is playing games and trying to show his supporters, in his own sneaky way, how clever and intellectual he is...what a puke. History has nothing to do with it - Harry wants to undermine the very idea of God in the public forum for his own purposes.

That is correct. The pledge was originally created in 1892 by socialist Francis Bellamy as a means of promoting loyalty to the state. Reid is simply reciting the pledge in which he truly believes. I'm pretty sure the phrase "under God" was added in the 50's

This is why I despise Democrats so much, Harry Reid is giving this the typical Liberal spin job, kowtowing to their kook leftwing progressive base that are mainly atheist. If he gets called out on this by any Christians or Patriots, he will defend his remarks saying in the context of the civil war, to which he was speaking, the words “Under God” had not yet been added to the Pledge... But I see through this slimy excuse of a man.... Expose all the Liberals for the out of touch radicals that they are, they want America to be a Socialist country and that needs to be stated loudly and clearly by all Republcans. Just make them defend their Socialist agenda and the America people will see right through the evil for what it is.

It was added in 1954. Reid knows exactly what he’s doing...or so he thinks anyway. What an arrogant SOB.

Unless the Civil War started in 1892, Harry doesn't have a leg to stand on.

(It’s because the pledge doesn’t say “under gods” — and Harry, a faithful Mormon, believes in multiple gods...there’s the Mormon quadrinity...dad-god, mom-god, son-god, and spirit-god...and then the council of gods who acquiesed to let dad-god convert from man to god, and then there’s all the other “to-be gods” of Mormonism...like Harry Reid and Mitt Romney, for example)

“One Nation with Liberty and Justice for all” was the original. It was changed around the end of the 40’s. If Harry is a non believer so be it. The official religion of the USA is no official religion. Shall we changed the constitution and make one of the religions official?

Sure the country was built on Judo Christian values, but it did not force the beliefs on anyone. I don’t see anyone as the Devil, I see people who may think differently than we do, but they aren’t necessarily being evil. If one does not believe in a supreme deity it doesn’t make that person evil. There are even evil people among believers.

Wasn’t the “under God” phrase inserted so that kids wouldn’t misunderstand “one nation, indivisible” as “one naked individual”?

That’s what I thought. When Reid was a boy “under God” wasn’t part of the pledge. It didn’t appear until the 50’s. But that makes me think that Reid is too old to get with the times and shouldn’t be Majority Leader, since he doesn’t know the “modern” version which has been around for...56 years. Someone should introduce him to this new fangled thing called “the internet”.

Many of us grew up w/o “under God” in the pledge and we turned out fine.

Watch the video.

He isn't reciting the Pledge. He is citing portions of it that speak to the unity of the country on this, the anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War. "One nation" and "indivisible" are the two phrases he lifts from the Pledge, and he is entirely right to do so within the context of his message.

Now, is he doing so to tweak the political Right? I'm sure he is......

He said, "On the 105th anniversry of the beginning of the Civil War, the words, "one nation, indivisible" mean more today than most other days." He did not mention anything about phrases.

No, he’s referencing the Civil War and referring to a short section of the pledge related to the unity of the nation. “Under God” isn’t relevant to his point, so he left it out. WTF is the big deal?

A rare fact that most folks don’t realize....the pledge “evolves”. I would imagine in forty years that we add another line or two. And no, it wouldn’t take an act of congress or the President’s signature to do it.
