The latest proof of a lack of coherency by the God avoiding mind and intolerant religionist is the statement by Mr Takei which conveniently left out ‘under God’ in the recitation of the pledge of allegiance.
The false and disingenuous cry of ‘church and state’ was called upon to suggest that this Buddhist had it correct not to mix God and country. Hmmm. A little puzzling, for this same creed gives him ‘liberty’ to call upon his god, anywhere and anytime.
The pledge assumes consideration and respect for the nation it represents, and to the republic ‘for which it stands,’ is rather clear. One nation under God was the context recognized by the good people of America not to be denied.
George Takei has taken his freedom and tries to remove the very freedom from others by ‘suggesting’ it is proper to remove certain words from a pledge of allegiance. I would suggest (and have more respect for the gentleman) if he keeps his thoughts to himself, and not recite his own edited pledge to draw attention to his belief.
He wants to leave out the true God and refers to the gods of Buddhism, yet fails to see how germane the pledge of allegiance is to this country of the stars and stripes. His understanding of ‘church and state’ is suspect, for there is NO CHURCH represented when we say ‘one nation under God.’
It really is that simple; people with clever lawyerly minds prey on the weak by claiming church and state is reason enough to dismantle ‘under God’ from any American writings. Please let me ask the naysayer once more: WHAT church is represented when we say ‘one nation under God?
I’ll go one better, WHAT church is represented when we read: ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth?’ Thank you for seeing clearly, there is none. The matter of a Creator is not a matter of church and state. It is a statement of fact and is not ambiguous in the least.
This is where Takei and his kin are seen without clothes, as their intentions are laid bare. They cry for religious freedom, but deny that the proof of their freedoms are endowed by a Creator, who inspired men to lead a nation in His laws which make men truly free.
Takei made his fame during the days of Star Trek, but failed to take advantage of the knowledge of the heavens in which he trafficked. Instead of seeing ‘the heavens declare of God,’ he only saw Klingons and warp speed. A sad life that is, to travel in God’s creation and be a tresspasser in the land in which you say God has no part God.
