Obama removes ‘God’ from Gettysburg Address
(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, learntheaddress.org, as well as each celebrity’s individual rendition.
