Anti-Christian Organization Says A Third Of Americans Want Under God Removed

Mark 13:13 “You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

An anti-Christian organization has released a poll they claim shows one-third of Americans would like to see the phrase “under God” removed from the Pledge of Allegiance.

The American Humanist Association released a report done for their group by the Seidewitz Group backing up their claim.

Roy Speckhardt of the anti-Christian group told the Christian Post they did the poll in part because of a study from LifeWay Research last year.  Speckhardt claims that after they explained the history of the Pledge to respondents, a greater number was in favor of removing the phrase.

The poll from LifeWay Research said that 85 percent of Americans wanted to keep “under God” in the pledge while only 8 percent said it should be removed.  The poll numbers were similar to an ABC poll from 2002 where 89 percent of Americans said the phrase should be kept in the Pledge.

The anti-Christian group plans a “new campaign” against the Pledge but would not give specific details on the campaign steps.  The AHA is currently overseeing a lawsuit against the phrase in New Jersey.
