Mike Huckabee and the Pledge of Allegiance

So Mike Huckabee thinks we need more God in the classroom?

Did you know that the Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a Socialist Baptist Minister?  The National Education Association requested the pledge be written to demonstrate the unity of our growing diversity in public schools.  A believer in the absolute separation of church and state, it is safe to say that when his ubiquitous pledge was modified in 1954during the Joseph McCarthy led anti-communism, anti-atheism, anti-enlightened histrionics to include the words ‘under God’ he would have been mortified.  It seems that “one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” has a history of being quite controversial because the catholic Church opposed it during World War I because it was making American Catholics, more American than Catholic.

You see, it's called public school for a reason and we haven't taken God out of the school as Huckabee cries.  It was never meant to be there in the 1st place; at least not in the form that Huckabee believes.
