Civil Rights Activist Omits Words “Under God” From Pledge at Inauguration [VIDEO]
As reported by TheRightScoop.com , for the first time in history a lay person gave the Presidential inaugural invocation and really didn't mention God much at all and especially noteworthy was her omission of the words "Under God" when quoting the Pledge of Allegiance.
Lay person Mrs. Myrlie Evers-Williams, 79, a civil rights activist and widow of the slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers, was given this honor after Christian pastor Louie Giglio backed out after much controversy over a sermon in which he called homosexuality a sin.
Evers-Williams did speak of mankind and womankind and the "promise of America" and she asked for "blessing upon our leaders," but rarely even mentioned God and the omission in quoting the Pledge has caused scores of ruffled feathers.
About 3:57 into the video you'll plainly see and hear the omission. Not sure how it makes you feel, but it certainly felt like a sucker punch to me and my Christian values. -- Gary
