    The word god is universal. Meaning a creator of this world and universe, but does not support many gods nor non-believe. Only one.

    well that statement is mostly a traditional nothing to do with religion. Now where it is a problem is in pledge of allegiance.

    1892



    "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."



    1892 to 1923



    "I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."



    1923 to 1924



    "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."



    1924 to 1954



    "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."



    1954 to Present



    "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    If I remember correctly. the Christians wanted to impose their faith on society and at some point in the late 50's in god we trust was printed on paper money and prior to that it was E pluribus unum "out of many, one.". In the 1800's some coins had the phrase but it was somewhat controversial

    If this was in the spirit of the founding fathers, many of whom were deist, than the great spirit is the closest, however as deists they didn't believe that God cared really what went down on earth.

    That was the express intent of the Knights of Columbus and other Christian groups that were the prime movers of this in the mid-1950s when that became our new, very deliberately exclusive National Motto, replacing the very deliberately inclusive Motto that the Founding Fathers had given us, and which even now has served our nation over thrice as long as this Johnny-come-lately Motto.

    Note that both nationally broadcast color television and commercial jet airline travel are older than both this new Motto (and its subsequent appearance on U.S. currency) and the insertion of “…under God…” into the Pledge of Allegiance! There are still,even now, tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of American citizens, still of sound mind and memory, who were adults when those things happened! They remember before those things! These are not ancient traditions dating back to the Founding Fathers!

    Even as written, even leaving out the intent of the KoC et al, it still clearly means only a single deity that is generally called “God.”

    That said, the real problem with this Motto is not the word “God.” It’s the word We”! “In God We Trust”!

    Just who are this “We”? American citizens? Then is this Motto not saying that only those who actually trust in (not merely believe in) specifically a single deity that is generally called “God” can even be considered American citzens? Are all others to be denied citizenship itself!?

    Yep. I’ve actually heard people say that “…under God…” should be in the Pledge of Allegiance, because “it was good enough for the Founding Fathers.” Never mind that all of the Founding Fathers and most of their children were long since in their graves before even the original Pledge without “under God” (and some other changes) was written (by the Rev. Francis J. Bellamy in the aftermath of the Civil War), let alone that most recent modification thereto (which flew in the face of Bellamy’s whole point in writing the Pledge in the first place)!

    Not quite. Remember that most of the Thirteen Colonies had been around awhile by the time of the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War. The oldest permanent English settlement was Jamestown, in 1620. The Declaration was in 1776. The Constitution in 1787. To put that in perspective, Jamestown was about as long ago for the Founding Fathers as the Civil War is for us! Most of them were born here, not in England.

    The Pilgrims (Puritans) came here shortly after Jamestown was established because they were basically kicked out of England for trying to take over and “purify” the Church of England to be the way they thought it should be. They were most definitely not interested in Freedom of Religion, at least not for anyone other than themselves.

    When they got on the Mayflower, they found themselves in the minority, so they imposed the Mayflower Compact on the other voyagers (the majority), forcing them to obey the Puritan religion even if they weren’t Puritans. When they got here and founded the Massachusetts Colony, they made it very clear that one had to be a Puritan (not just Christian or even Protestant or even the Anglican branch of Protestantism) to even be a citizen of the colony.

    Well over a century later, when the Founding Fathers were setting up the Constitution, they implemented Freedom of Religion largely because of the bad example that was the Puritans and the Massachusetts Colony! They did not want that sort of thing to happen again!
