Under God - What does that mean and to whom?

By Remy Benoit

There has been much talk about morals and God concerning the recent election.

There has been much talk about many things and all of it remaining, indeed, fostering what is divisive rather than what we have in common. Words have power to heal, and power to divide, indeed, conquer.

I don't think that anyone can argue against the fact that while religion is a mainstay, a devotion, a commitment, in peoples' lives, its history has been infused with violence, dissent, persecution of all kinds. We need to remember that.

Since it has been so much in the news, I thought some perspectives to give us food for thought would be appropriate:

From Sojourners

God-Talk and Moral Values by David Batstone.

America's global testimony: A Canadian perspective by Will Braun.
