Correction to Last Post

So, I must correct my last posting. The "I Pledge" video was not what Obama showed to students yesterday. Instead, it was apparently a video hosted by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.

It was still a disturbing video.

I Pledge

I just watched the "I Pledge" video that Obama is supposed to show to schools today. I am left feeling empty and hollow inside.

The moment in which we pledge our allegiance to any one man is the moment in which we become un-American. Have we forgotten to whom our true allegiance lies? "...One nation under God...."

I read a part of the last Conference issue last night to try and calm myself down after watching the video. I received a tender mercy. President Monson said, "As your humble servant, I desire with all my heart to do God's will and to serve Him and to serve you." The world would have us pledge our allegiance to one man, to one power. The gospel would have us pledge our allegiance to God and to His people. How grateful I was for that tender mercy and for the example of a prophet.

I place my trust in the American people to see through the "pledge" of Barack Obama and to realize the true "pledge" that the Spirit would have us make in our hearts.

I pledge....allegiance to my God.
