Taking God Out of the Constitution, but not Really

Updated on September 4, 2015

Taking God Out of the Constitution, but not Really

I believe that there is an acceptable way of taking God out of government that would appease everyone. Instead of being one nation under God, let’s be one nation under love. Then the whole nature of government would change as now the prime directive of government is to love its’ citizens and anything to the contrary would be criminal. In love we trust is better than in God we trust as there be Gods many of which some are not benevolent. Under love, you are free to have any religion or worship any God without anyone else’s being imposed on you. The statues, and laws of the land will all eventually be revised to follow the spirit of love instead the lesser goal of, justice which implies punishment. I would much rather live in a country under love, than a country under God because people war over their version of God be they countries, neighbors, families or friends. Gods separate people whereas love brings them together. I wrote my state representatives with this suggestion, but I never heard back from them on it. I guess it is just too good a change with too many positive corrections that would turn the world right side up. I ask that everyone who reads this also contact their state representatives with the proposition to change the Constitution to say under love instead of under God. In love we trust.

      Who said it would be easy? Whatever good is?

      It is very possible to just keep chocolate syrup from spilling into milk while separating it out once its been mixed in is a nearly impossible task... It would have been easier to establish this country that way from the start then to try and change a heavily ingrained and very different way of thinking.

      There was a time when there was no constitution and the idea of having one was taken much like you are taking this. Besides, the USA is a republic, which makes it easier for a small number of people to make changes.

      It would involve EVERYONE thinking that way. This is just not a possibility. Ignorance and stubborness prevail, especially in the presence of fundamentalism and dogma. The population is too large, so there's going to be significant variations in personalities and desires. Is this possible in small communties? Absolutely.

      Your pessimism is noted, but I believe that in time this can be a reality.

      I love the idea, but that's too "rainbows and sunshine" to become a reality in society, unfortunately.
