The assertion of that principle, at that time, was the word "fitly spoken" which has proven an "apple of gold" to us. The Union, and the Constitution, are the picture of silver, subsequently framed around it. The picture was made, not to conceal, or destroy the apple; but to adorn and preserve it. The picture was made for the apple -- not the apple for the picture.
None of the words fitly spoken in the Constitution’s picture, or frame, make sense if they are not related to those apples of gold in the Declaration.
By censoring Under God, we remove an essential support for the Declaration and the Constitution. Ours is no “godless Constitution,” as some atheizers believe, because ours is no godless nation. We have no state religion, thank God, and no established church. This is as it should be. But neither should we permit atheists to force their world view on us and make a “naked public square” secularism our governing philosophy.
The American people, through their elected representatives, put Under God in the Pledge of Allegiance. It has been there since 1954. President Eisenhower signed the bill. If the atheizers want to get rid of it, they are free to go to Congress and to propose legislation to remove those words. What they are not free to do is to strike them down by judicial usurpation or by the outrageous and offensive censorship of a licensed broadcaster using the public airways.
