The quote above George Washington was never said by him. It was said by John Adams and is completely out of context........ Whoever made this is either confused, or purposely trying to start fights and confusion.

so why doesn't the UK change from "god save the queen" considering they have Charles Darwin one of their bills

Monarchy is a constitutional relic, hasn't influenced politically for near 230 years.

The Bank of England makes the notes, they can do what they want.

at the olympics they had a rather talented group of children sing "God Save the Queen" which is rather contrary(in the part of christianity not the queen britts) to the beliefs of Charles Darwin who is on one of their bills. therefore trying to say its any different from a few presidents on a mountain saying somewhat anti-religious quotes is poppycock

Darwin was a christian

Actually, towards the end of his life, he became an agnostic, he had large fueds with his wife, who was a devout catholic.

i was always told he changed from being a christian toward a much more evolutionist standpoint considering his findings but please do correct me if im wrong
the more you know the better you feel i say

all i know is that on the final page in Origins Darwin gives acknowledgement to God
User avatar #101 to #100 - Offspringofwolves (09/08/2012) [-]
ive honestly never read it but he may have said that out of fear of the church or still had the findings swimming in his head

Sometimes when I'm alone I eat some cheese on my bed near a mouse hole. When I'm done I use the cheese remnants and rub them all over me until I am covered in cheese. I then take my moms vibrator and shove it through my body until I look like Swiss Cheese.

Freemasonry allows its members to practice any religion they wanted to. And all the founders of America were Protestants, thank you very much.
#44 to #37 - anon (09/01/2012) [-]
Any religion as long as it has a deity. Buddhism, Atheism, etc. are not allowed.

Its just that there was a backlash against the masons sometime around the civil war. They went underground and resurfaced a strictly charitable organization.

"Democracy is the most vile form of government... democracies have ever
been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found
incompatible with personal security or the rights of property:
and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent
in their deaths.

-- James Madison, fourth President of the United States of America

That is why we are a republic and everyone doesn't vote on everything like some people think we should. Also why we have a constitution to limit the powers of the government.
User avatar #60 to #51 - corundum (09/01/2012) [-]
We're still a democracy, though. What America was in its early days was something where only the wealthy landowners could vote.

"The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion." — John Adams in the Treaty of Tripoli.

Derp.

Just getting this out there,
"God Bless America" appeared in the 50's as a way of distancing ourselves from communists who were supposed to be "fervent" atheists
so for all the tea party people out there who want America to go back to the way founder's wanted it, take your religion out of your politics first
#22 - zukowashere (09/01/2012) [-]
Well of course the US didn't want to base their government on religion.  That's the reason they left the "old world", religious freedom.   
   
They want everyone living in the US to have their own right to express their own ideas of religion.

They actually were oppressed by religion and wanted to make sure that religion couldn't get into the government. They didn't care about that people wanted to believe different things, they cared that the government ruled the people equally a fairly because religion does not and they didn't want us to go through what we are going through right now.
#25 to #22 - anon (09/01/2012) [-]
It's the other way around, they left religious freedom:

what do you mean OP?
"God Bless America"
what do you mean "need a new catchphrase"?
All I can see is the presidents expressed some sort of rejection to christianity
why do you need to find new catchphrase?
User avatar #3 to #1 - ponyfcker (08/31/2012) [-]
George Washington said, "The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion." meaning the phrase, "God Bless America" Should not be there.
#13 to #3 - anon (09/01/2012) [-]
"God Bless America", not "Jesus Bless America", it doesn't mean that George Washington didn't believe in god by expressing that statement
#10 to #3 - anon (09/01/2012) [-]
That wasn't George Washington, it was from John Adams in the Treaty of Tripoli. The phrases, "In God we trust" and ",under God," were added in the early 1950's under Macarthyism. "God bless America" comes from the National Anthem during the war of 1812.
Hell yea, History ************* .

Why does that matter? It doesn't change the fact that people want God to bless America. Thomas Jefferson was an asshole anyways.
#30 - sovietsammich (09/01/2012) [-]
Because that phrase was not introduced by the government???? Also back when people first started saying it everyone was not a whiny little snoot who had to complain about everything???
User avatar #23 - thisjerk (09/01/2012) [-]
Obviously, USA is not a Christian nation, but one thing that really bothers me about "God Bless America" is the fact that it suggest that God only cares about America. If God is real, you think he has favorites? Why would he choose America, a country created by killing an entire race of people, over somewhere else? Such a ******** saying.
User avatar #29 to #23 - schwerdaddy (09/01/2012) [-]
I'm not defending this motto, but don't you think God, if he exists, can bless more than 1 country. It says America because of nationalism and the fact that people have pride in their country. It wouldn't be as patriotic to say "God bless the entire world," but it does not say that God may not care for anybody else.

It just says "God bless America". Almost every religion believes in 1 God, they just call him by different names and worship to him/her in different ways. It doesn't specify to Christianity.
User avatar #32 to #2 - SniperKitty (09/01/2012) [-]
In a society not bound by any religion 'God' should not be part of any of our country's symbols. Even if 'God' referred to any God you believed in (we all know what God is being referred to though) there are Buddhists who don't believe in a God, there are Atheists that don't believe in a God, there are Satanists who don't worship God. Not everyone believes in God, and in a country specifically set out NOT to have religious influences in politics we should cut the ******** . If we were a country birthed on one religion sure, but we aren't....
#4 to #2 - parrotmaster (08/31/2012) [-]
You know they are all referring to the god of christianity, don't try to be a smartass.
#14 to #4 - anon (09/01/2012) [-]
nope, didn't you read the quotes you idiot? that means "God Bless America" should not founded on the Christian Religion
User avatar #24 to #14 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/01/2012) [-]
Anon, shut the **** up.

The Catholic god, is referred to as God. Christianity is still considered a Catholic religion.

Other religions have specific names for there gods. "Allah, Buddha, ect"

God is capitalized. Making it a name.
#48 to #24 - typos (09/01/2012) [-]
Buddha wasn't a god nor did he ever claim to be. If you knew anything about the religion you would know this. Also, Allah translates to the word "God" as Allah is not an English word.
User avatar #54 to #48 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/01/2012) [-]
Buddha. is their deity. It is who they worship, and who they aspire to be through self discipline.

Yes, it does translate to "God" In English. However, considering it is a religion that originated in The Middle East, and not In Europe "Although, technically most religion can be traced back there somehow" His name is not god. It is Allah.

Even in the case of there being many gods, none of them are simply called god.

They all have names, and titles. The Catholics deity's name, is God. You could argue that Jesus Christ is also his name. Because they are the same, but regardless of that, America is a child of England. Which is of Catholic religion.

Thus, "God", refers to the Catholic deity.
#74 to #54 - typos (09/01/2012) [-]
Buddha was not a deity in any way or form. I have spoken to many Muslims who say God instead of Allah. The Catholics deity's name is actually "Yahweh (Hebrew for God)" and not God.
User avatar #79 to #74 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/01/2012) [-]
I know what Yahweh means. And Yahweh, is not the term we use today. however. The term we use today, Is "God", "Lord". "Savior".

His name is not god. It translates into god, in English. His name is Allah.

They look up to, and respect Buddha. They bow to him.
He is, the closest thing they have to a deity. And is almost treated like one.

Regardless of all of this, I have already proven why they are referring to the god of Christianity. Enough.
#84 to #79 - typos (09/01/2012) [-]
People that speak Hebrew use Yahweh when speaking in their language.
Yahweh = God in English
Allah = God in English

Buddha on the other hand was an originally an Ascetic who became known as the "Enlightened one" and gave the people the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path. He became the "Enlightened one" by practicing his extreme Asceticism and the realizing there must be a middle way. So no, he is not a deity nor ever claimed to be one.
User avatar #89 to #84 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/01/2012) [-]
Yes, he is. He is a religious figure. Just because he isn't divine, doesn't mean he isn't a deity. Even if he doesn't claim to be. He isn't a deity in our sense, and they don't worship him in our sense, that doesn't mean he isn't, and that they don't.

I obviously know what Allah and Yahweh mean. Stop treating me like a dumb ass.

They mean god, in English, Because America, was settled, by bloody England. Who are Catholics. So, it is most likely referring to the Catholic god. Doesn't matter if it means Yahweh, Allah, and vice versa, In England and America, he would be referred to mainly in _ English._ And in English, he is called God.

God in English most likely=Catholic religion.
#91 to #89 - typos (09/02/2012) [-]
There are more protestants then Catholics in America so that just doesn't make sense. And America wasn't settled just by England. It was settled by a multitude of different countries.
User avatar #92 to #91 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/04/2012) [-]
Protesrant is just a reformation of the Catholic religion... Theyre still Christians. Most of Europe at the time, were
Christians. Youre wrong. Drop it.
#93 to #92 - typos (09/05/2012) [-]
There's the main religion of Christianity then there is the two branches. Catholic and Protestant. If you say Catholics and Protestants worship the same god that also means Muslims and Jews worship the Catholic/Protestant god since they are all Abrahamic religions.
User avatar #94 to #93 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/05/2012) [-]
No I dont. Because they still have different names. And even though there religions have similar roots, does not mean the religions are the same, or that they worship the same god.

The gap between Protestant and Catholic however, is much smaller.

They really arent the same. If they were, we wouldnt have ever killed each other in a gods name. But we had multiple crusades over such a thing. Allah is not God.
#95 to #94 - typos (09/05/2012) [-]
If you were a hebrew speaking Christian you would not say god. You would call him Yahweh due to the language you speak. If you were a Christian who spoke an arabic language you would most likely (depending on the language) call God Allah.
User avatar #96 to #95 - TheRetardedEskimo (09/06/2012) [-]
That doesnt matter. Thats just language. The gods are different for the religion specifically. And too use your argument against you, A Christian speaking English would call him God. Considering most of Americas religion is Christian(AGAIN), and even more so then. They are referring to Christianity.

#97 to #96 - typos (09/07/2012) [-]
A lot of Muslims and Jews refer to him as God when they are speaking the English language
User avatar #81 - tomhefailin (09/01/2012) [-]
