"under God"

"Say it ain't so, Bill. To be sure, it was unintentional. Bill O'Reilly obviously recognizes the danger of secular extremism. He fights it vigorously and regularly. But Bill blundered badly in putting the Secular Coalition of America's atheist paid lobbyist, Lori Lippman Brown, on the air last night without being prepared to discuss the history of “The Pledge of Allegiance” or the particulars of the bill paid lobbyist Brown is campaigning against these days. Brown used the airtime Bill gave her last night to charge that the inclusion of the words 'under God' in “The Pledge of Allegiance' was the result of 'McCarthyism' (translation: a hysterical fear of communism) and to attack a bill that would protect religious organizations from people who would subvert their message and good work."
