Our forefatherd had the right idea! To place their faith in "GOD". I am one of the Americans that do! Thank GOD a lot of Americans do the same! Do not let God out of these military funerals!
First I want to say I believe in God. Second I honestly believe the reason the world is in such a sad state is because we the people have taken God out of every thing we believe in. It is because of God that we were made. Without Him we are nothing. Just look at the world we live in today. Wouldn't it be a much better place with Him in it?
God is watching all of us and helping us in all of our fights. He is there always.
You shall have no other gods before....Our Holy Father..The Lord GOD.
It is not the choice of the government!
we as people are forgetting who is our creater and maker this country was founded on god and we seem to want to take that away from the american people to please other we don't want to take your faith and your god away from u so please leave ors alone u don't have to belive or have faith but don't try to change what we have and what we know over a word that has been with us since the begaining.
God is are only help to mankind! Man has fouled up just about everything. Stop the insanity people.
God is NOT the problem. It's "WE THE PEOPLE".
I am a Christian and believe that without God's grace and love, we are nothing!

MY FATHER WAS A VETERAN, VETERAN OF THE YEAR MANY YEARS AGO, AND COMMANDEROF POST 184 GEORGE K GANNAM! HE WAS A GOD LOVING MAN! MY NEPHEW WAS IN THE NAVY AND SERVED ON THE NUCLEAR AIRCRAFT CARRIER ABRAHAM LINCOLN DURING THE GULF WAR! MY COUSIN IS IN THE MARINES AND HELP TAKE IRAQ AND MAKE IT BETTER! I LOVE GOD AND THINK IT SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE AT FUNERALS AND OTHER CEREMONIES! GOD IS IN US, KEEP THE FAITH AT ALL TIMES!
The fool hath said there is no God! I find it so ridiculious that when people are in trouble they cry out "God help me". Amazing isn't it that this country was a wonderful, flourishing land when God was in control-you don't have to believe in our God, just leave ours alone. Jesus Christ is Lord now and will be forever!
God bless you Linda....I believe the same way. Put God back at the head of the American family... government...schools... and any other office of authority. " God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble...." Psalm 46: 1
