Oregon rep salutes 'one nation under love,' lack of love results
MSN ^ | Jan. 17, 2013 | MSN

Posted on 01/17/2013 11:19:13 AM PST by AuntB

Oregon representative Carolyn Tomei, a Democrat, says she didn't think "anyone would notice" when she came up with a revision to the Pledge of Allegiance — swapping out "one nation under God" for the groovier, if less traditional, "one nation under love." Conservative bloggers picked up on the change when Tomei led the Oregon House in reciting the pledge this week....

A spokesperson for the Oregon House Speaker downplayed the dust-up: "My hope is that this is the last time I talk about it."

She needs to read 1 John 4:8. Real love is a decision of 100% selfless commitment, not some warm fuzzy tingle that liberals experience.

Interesting that Democrats always appear about to burst into flames when confronted with God.

"ONE NATION UNDER LOVE"

Ain't that special? And, to ensure that we are "One Nation Under Love", I'm sure they will enact laws which carry penalties for anyone who doesn't fall in line. Dumb@sses.

That's what I typically say," said Tomei. "It's just comfortable to me."

She typically says "love" instead of "God" because she isn't comfortable saying "God", yet she claims she wasn't trying to disrespect the pledge. BS.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love - I John 4:8.

So if it is "one nation under God" or "one nation under love", it's the same thing. Of course, liberals think they are expunging God when they come up with tripe like this so they really don't what they are speaking about.

Would Ms. Tomei have a problem with "one political collective under God" or is the word "nation" more important to her?

Is “love” the brand name of a new jack-boot?

You are about ten years too late. She seems more in the Jefferson Airplane, Fifth Dimension era.

She looks a lot like Elizabeth "Liawatha" Warren. Except Lizzie has the thicker moustache.

Liberalism is corrosive; what's inside soon shows up on the outside.

One nation under water.

obama’s version would be “one nation undertaxed.”

It may not be what she had in mind, but you know, God is Love. (1 John 4:8)
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

“It may not be what she had in mind, but you know, God is Love. (1 John 4:8)”

May not be what she had in mind??? That’s the point.

“Interesting that Democrats always appear about to burst into flames when confronted with God.”

In this increasingly secular (even beyond that: anti-religious) country, what they do to the old symbols and songs of the old Republic mean less & less to me. If Obama and his ilk are what “American” stands for, they can have it. Christians have many of their own symbols and songs they can rally around; they have no place in this country that is becoming increasingly freaky.
