This is a quote which came from the monologue of former Tonight Show host, Jay Leno, which he told as a joke. However, it makes a great point.
“With hurricanes, tornados, and fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up this country up from one end to another and also with the threat of swine flu along with possible terrorist attacks. Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”
(end of joke)
Thank you Mr Leno. It is never, ever, a good time to show God the door. Instead, tell God to pull up a chair sit down and stay a long, long, time (Psalm 33:12). Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
