Muslim & LGBTQ Delegates at DNC Remove ‘Under God’ from Pledge

'Remember Evangelical Christians, and ALL, this is where they are coming from-it's done...'

(Headline USA) President Donald Trump noted Saturday that Democrats are taking “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance at their national convention.

Trump tweeted: “The Democrats took the word GOD out of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democrat National Convention. At first I thought they made a mistake, but it wasn’t. It was done on purpose. Remember Evangelical Christians, and ALL, this is where they are coming from-it’s done. Vote Nov 3!”

The central programming of the convention featured the entire pledge, complete with “under God,” but some Democrats removed the words.

During two caucuses before the evening conventions started, the Muslim Delegates and Al lies Assembly and the LGBTQ Caucus meeting, both Tuesday, left out “under God,” from the pledge.

The party’s series of caucus meetings was livestreamed but not part of the prime-time convention broadcast.

The pledge was written in 1892 and altered in the 1920s.

“Under God” was added in 1954, when President Dwight Eisenhower encouraged Congress to do so.

Those two words have prompted a debate at times over whether people who do not practice religion should be expected to pledge allegiance to a country under God.
