Editor, The Daily Home:

In recent years, God has been removed from many things … money, prayer in schools, no more prayer before sporting events, not even a nativity can be displayed in a public place anymore.

It was brought up in church Sunday. They are now trying to remove it from the Pledge of Allegiance. If the word God is removed then we are just another nation. This country was founded on one nation under God. We as a nation and as a person should be putting God first in everything we do because sooner or later, God will turn his back on us as we have Him.

The nation has gotten to where you cannot talk about God. You can’t display Jesus or God in any way to the public. But any other religion can. This is putting God last. I’ve tried to live good the last few years and I can tell you if you keep putting God last, whether country or person, you will pay for it. So let’s keep God in our country and first in our lives so we will have a better life and a better country for believing in Jesus Christ.

    I am a 1965 Graduate of B.B.Comer and grateful for all the advice from people that have been associated with me in my experience of life. I was an interpreter for the deaf at Central Baptist Church in Talladega during the '70's. From that time till now there is something I have discovered. It is not possible to be without God no matter who you are in the world. We all define ourselves as I am in our speech process by saying I am and then our names. For instance, when someone asks who is Don Hardy, I reply I am. I have concluded that Jesus died as a result of telling the people this very thing. He called all of us God in John 10:34. He even said before Abraham was I am. The kingdom of God is within. You are God.

    We must hold the Taliban as our brothers since they are God. God is a killer of school girls in Afghanistan. The Taliban members will have to hold to the convictions of the Islamic law as they know it. They are as the KKK was to the Christians. God is the creator of good and evil as we are told in Isaiah chapter 7, I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things. The world leaders just have not brought the Taliban into alignment with the Baha'i teachings of (Bahaullah) in1863.

    All religions and atheist alike must form an alliance to create a world that works for everyone to know that all of us make up the tree of knowledge. I am is the password in the mechanics of life. Any expression following I am will result in that description, such as I am starving to death will cause crop failure due to drought. Whatever you shall declare in my name (I am), I will give it to you.

    I, respectfully, suggest that the writer do more research on the matter.

    1) In God We Trust is still on money.
    2) Student-led prayer in school is still allowed by law although there are instances of staff not understanding this
    3) Christian prayer still happens before every JSU and Ohatchee football game. I can't attest to any others as those are the only ones I have recently attended.
    4) The removal of "under God" from the pledge is not a new idea. It's as old as the addition itself which occurred in the 50's as part of the Red Scare.
    5) Displays of religion in the form of prayer have been restricted in many city hall meetings around the nation to only Judeo-Christian prayers.

    Freedom of religion rarely takes a backseat even in legal disputes where rights conflict like in the recent Hobby Lobby case. IMHO, what really needs to change is that America needs to embrace inclusion while also taking stock of the fact that their religious choices are their own and should not negatively affect anyone else no matter what religion you choose or do not choose.
