Real Americans

A basic belief for the Christian Right is that America is a “Christian Nation.”  The Pledge of Allegiance, with it’s added phrase “under God,” plays a significant role here because every day most children recite what amounts to a patriotic affirmation incorporating a religious oath, thus encouraging them to see patriotism and theism as essentially linked.  Since most tend to come from at least a general Christian background, the Christian god is the only sort of they’ll have in mind when they say or hear “under God.”
