"One Nation Under God" Ribbons

Okay, I saw these cool ribbons at a trade show a year or two ago and I had to have one. I proudly displayed it on my car as my voice for the "Pledge of Allegiance" and how it was written and what it stands for. I know this is a very controversial issue, however, I know without a doubt which side I stand on. But this magnet stayed on my car until it was faded and finally got lost going through the car wash. I was really upset when I lost my favorite magnet and really wanted to get me another one but I didn't want to have to buy 50 of them just so I could have one. So here is the deal, the company offers 4 different types of "ribbon" magnets as well as an American flag. If you would like one, leave me a comment with your contact information. They should be $3.00 each, that includes tax and shipping. Now I will charge only tax, shipping and the wholesale cost of these magnets. I do not intend to make money off this, my intent is A) get me a new magnet and B) make sure everyone that wants one can get one. I love these magnets and I have never seen another vehicle with the "One Nation Under God" Ribbon and I do not want to be the only one.


So, if you want any of the magnets I need you to leave a comment with your name, e-mail address and how many of which styles. When I have enough interest to purchase 50 of the style magnet you have requested, I will e-mail you with instructions for payment and to get a shipping address. Any questions please post a comment.


Again, I know getting into the "One Nation Under God" thing is a very controversial issue so please feel free to leave whatever comments you would like, remembering however that I have a sweet little delete button! Have a wonderful day!

m all for people standing up for what they believe in, I admire that quality above most.
But the pledge of allegiance that we recite today, is not the true pledge.
This page is the history of the pledge and it's history must be known.

As an update to Kats post, noone knows for sure who wrote thte orignal pledge. Francis Bellamy and James Upham were both very interested in the idea and the pledge was published both anonymously and not copyrighted. In June 22, 1942 the United States Congress included the Pledge to the Flag in the United States Flag Code (Title 36). At that time it still lacked the words "under God". On June 14 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower approved adding the words "under God". As he authorized this change he said:

"In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource in peace and war."

I love that he agreed that this nation was founded on religious beliefs with morals and values and that he felt that was such an important part of our nation.

For those of you that would like a little less bias history of the Pledge of Allegiance you can go to Home of Heroes
