Where Did "Under God" Come From?
Catholics, that's where

From my Examiner.com article;
Have you ever seen one of those old pre-1950's movies where the Pledge of Allegiance was recited? Did it strike you as odd that they said "... one nation, indivisible..."? Why didn't they say "under God"?

Did you know that in 1954, the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus adopted a resolution that urged Congress and the White House to add the words "under God" to the Pledge? Supreme Knight Luke Hart, who was also president of the National Fraternal Congress, persuaded the other 110 fraternal societies to support the resolution as well.

And the rest, as they say... is history.

How sad those Knights of yesteryear would be if they could see how many of our priests have abandoned the salvation of souls, to become ecclesiastical social workers.
