Thinking Thursday’s are about critically thinking, breaking out of boxes, and discussing new ways we could live this life together. The words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance and the phrase "In God, we trust" on the back of a dollar bill haven't been there as long as most Americans might think. Perhaps we never were a "Christian" nation formed on "Christian" principles? What do you think? MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:
