I wonder if some people are going to try and take away our traditional Holidays? Since they want to take God out of the pledge alliance. Do you think they will go as far as getting rid-of the 4th of July holiday as well?

    You do know the word god was not in the original pledge of allegiance, right? It was put in in 1954, years after it's original creation. Taking it out of the pledge is really not that big a deal, either, since the founding fathers were not Christian, but deists.

    Now, as for the holiday stuff, Independence Day is not a religious holiday, so there's no reason to equate it to one. And some of the holidays aren't even celebrated strictly by religious people anymore. They've become watered down to being consumerist holidays. Sorry, but it is the truth. Easter and Christmas are no longer strictly Christian holidays. Halloween has been changed from its original celebration. Those are really the only ones celebrated by everyone, be they a religious person or not.

    God was not originally in the Pledge, McCarthy had it voted in during the Red Scare in the 1950's. I say bring back the original. As far as traditional holidays, which ones are 'they' attempting to take away? Seeing as Christianity has already borrowed all of these Holidays from Pagans, I do not know how pervasive your argument will be though. The 4th of July is a secular Holiday, not one based on religious beliefs.

    Seeing that 'god' doesn't exist in the first place, your comment is moot.

    I'm guessing no, the knowledge that God was inserted into the Pledge of Allegiance in the 50s has fallen by the wayside.

    Think back on the last major holidays, they were played down since the current administration got in. Christmas was very quiet, few ads not the usual BS, Mother and Fathers day every other year come buy our stuff, last 3 years I find out about it being imminent on the local news, same with Easter every other year buy our eggs, buy our clothes, buy, buy, buy last 3 years, local news. They're already under assault, quietly. Fourth of July is fun because they get to play with pyrotechnics, they'll just make out like it's celebrating something else instead of God shed his Grace on thee.

    I think they are already playing down holidays to get rid of them. The non-Christian religious holidays and foreign ones are getting more attention than the traditional U.S. holidays. Ramadan gets as much media as our holidays now. Official U.S. Holidays are really little more than store sale events.

    So basically what you are saying is the 'reason' for the season is for more TV ads? Mother and Father's Day are not religious Holidays. LOL. Okie Dokie..

    I didn't say Mother's and Father's day were religious holidays.

    You said few ads. Hence my reply. and the statement by you was non-Christian Religous Holidays.

    Many who want to "fundamentaly change" our country will not "get rid" of things like independence day, just try to change them "fundamentaly".
