Obama removes ‘God’ from Gettysburg Address

November 19, 2013

(WMAL RADIO) WASHINGTON — One nation under God?  Under President Obama,  maybe not so much. You can see the President’s reading of the Gettysburg speech here –  his omission is at the 1:35 mark.  

As first reported on WMAL’s Chris Plante Show Tuesday, the  Commander-in-Chief joined a cast of 61 other noted lawmakers, politicians, news  anchors and celebrities, including every living President, in reciting the  Gettysburg Address, which President Abraham Lincoln delivered on November  19, 1863.

The dignitaries all delivered the address as Lincoln had written it,  including the phrase, ”that this nation, under God, shall have a new  birth of freedom.” (Click  to listen). Curiously, however, in his version of the address,  President Obama omitted the words “under God.”

Filmmaker Ken Burns gathered the celebrities’ speeches as part of a PBS documentary. Burns edited the individual speeches into one final mashup that is available on his website,, as well as each celebrity’s individual rendition.

  1. The belief in religious freedom dictates that a government will not show preference for nor discriminate against any religion….since all religions are seen as having freedom & equality of existence and worship.
    This means that a government that believes in self-rule, in democracy, cannot show any preference for any ‘god’, either Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc. ….the government must be neutral.

    But in reality it is not neutral…for it shows preference for a ‘god’ of freedom….a ‘god of fortresses’ that dictates that any ‘personal god’ can be worship as a ‘personal’ faith.

    This is the “religion” of the state…of President Obama….as he has confessed that this FREEDOM is the “light” and the “will” of his god…..the same god that all men , religious leaders, rulers of nations worship as their first way of life.

    BUT NOTE….this “freedom” denies and rejects the preeminence and omniscience of the One and Only Creator, whose identity is clearly defined by his Son Jesus Christ….and this is blasphemy, error, sin, disobedience.

    At His return, which is soon, it will be Only The One King Jesus Christ that will rule according to and in obedience to the Will of the One Creator Yehowah Elohim and NOT according to man’s first love for his “freedom”…for there will be no religious freedom….for there is Only One Creator God, One Beginning, One Truth.
