"One nation under God..."

 If it stopped there, we'd be in big trouble.

But it continues like this: "with liberty and justice for all."

No matter what you think, we are not a Christian nation.

We have Jews and Muslims and Sikhs and Buddhists and Hindus and agnostics and atheists.

And we all have "liberty and justice" in this country.

Get over it, Evangelicals, we are a people of many faiths.

We need to acknowledge that and move on.

Religion is one of the things that divides us.

We need to realize how diverse we are as a people and proclaim "liberty and justice for all" over and over.

I love living in a diverse country--and I believe, with all my soul, in 'liberty and justice' for all of us.
