A Rational Look at Christianity; Basing Reason in Truth

Anyone interested in whether the founding fathers would have agreed with the court striking down the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance should peruse the following page written by History Professor Clayton Cramer (author of Clayton Cramer's Blog) entitled "One Nation, Under God". In the paper, Professor Cramer gives a number of examples from the earliest days of American history where the founders specifically approved the acknowledgement of God by the government.

Of course, if you are an advocate for the "living constitution" where the meaning of the words changes from generation to generation, you probably don't care what the Constitution was intended to mean. Pity.


I have taught history classes as an adjunct, but Professor Cramer, I'm afraid, is going way too far. Realistically, I only have an MA in History and five books published; no college or university is going to hire me.
