One Nation Under Nobody

Does this kid know her history and epistemology, or what?

In 1954, Eisenhower signed into law the insertion of “under God” into the Pledge of Alleigance, which had been godless since its invention in 1892.

That theists claim the Pledge has existed, with “under God” intact, since the inception of your country, is so wrong as to merit a facepalm or three.
