Since January House Democrats have worked successfully to oust the phrase “So Help Me God” from all oaths in the House of Representatives, as The Daily Wire reports:
According to LifeSiteNews, the changes to the oaths have been slowly implemented ever since House Democrats announced the new policy in January, which immediately faced backlash.
“In January, a draft of a rules package from the Natural Resource Committee was leaked to the public showing ‘so help me God’ marked for deletion, replaced with the phrase ‘under penalty of law,'” reports the outlet…
Republicans have been fighting back. Rep. Mike Johnson argued before his colleagues that “so help me God” carries great weight in that it implies someone who bears false witness is subjected to a higher judge.
“The intention behind [‘so help me God’] was to express the idea that the truth of what was being said was important not just in the moment, but would go into eternity, and someone was watching and would ultimately be our judge,” said Johnson. “Some would call that mere symbolism, but to many of our founders, it was deeper than that.”
Democrats, mimicking the atheistic Communist regimes of the past, have decided to try to banish God from American public life. This in spite of the fact that the US’s own Declaration of Independence states that all men are “endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights.” Let’s hope conservatives don’t let them succeed.
