When I had to testify at the murder trial of my parents a week ago, I was asked to raise my right hand. The bailiff started out, "Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth ? I stood there and waited but she said nothing more. She said, "Do you?" Iwas so stunned I blurted out, "What happened to "so help me God?" She came back with "Do you?" I replied yes, but I was perplexed. Then the judge said, "You can say that if you want to." I stopped, raised my right hand and finished with "so help me God!" I told my son and daughter that when it came time for them to testify, they should do the same. It's no wonder we have so many problems in this country. If I'd had my wits about me, I'd have told them that taking God out of the courtroom is only going to result in more criminals and murderers like him being in there. I don't know what can be done about it, but it's time we stepped up and did something.CNBC this morning had a poll on this question. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls and the percentage was the same as this 86% to keep the words; 14% against. That is a pretty commanding public response. I was asked to send this on if I agreed or delete if I didn't. Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to sit down and SHUT UP! If you agree, pass it on. If not, you know where that friendly little ol' delete button is. Wait!  Do you really want to hit that Delete button?
