It's All Ken Burn's Fault

White House explains why Obama didn't say "under God" in Gettysburg Address - CBS News

This is the microscope under which the government works.

Our BO is a good Christian who attended Jeremiah wright's church every Sunday and paid attention to the Good Word. I heard that on the radio also.

He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Since there were no recorders back then we'll never know what Lincoln actually said. Its interesting that Lincoln hand wrote four copies if I read correctly, two with God and two without. Sounds like he was careful not to play favorites!

I don't seem to remember reading where he was a muslim lover either.

Wright is a piece of work. Hard to figure why any black man would be angry in any way, eh?

OTOH, he and his church have a good record on rehabilitating ex-cons, something that is often not done well in our land. What did JC say, 'by their fruits ye shall know them?'

^ I find if someone says that God is behind them, if they use the word God in all their communication, they are without doubt of high moral character and trustworthy.

Responsible for what? Was the transcript given to him historically inaccurate? How would we know what Lincoln actually said?
