President omits "under God" from Gettysburg Address

Rogue tax collectors, warrantless wiretaps, federal shakedowns and foreign policy debacles have characterized President Barack Obama's second term in office.

President Obama’s rendition of Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Gettysburg Address does not include “under God.”

As first reported by WMAL’s Chris Plante Show Tuesday, Obama joined 61 other lawmakers, politicians, media figures and celebrities, including every living president, to recite the Gettysburg Address for a documentary film.

In Lincoln’s address, delivered November 19, 1863, the Republican said, in part, “It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” (emphasis added)

In President Obama’s recitation of the address (see below), the phrase “under God” is curiously omitted.


  1. And with minimal research, this reporter might have found there are multiple copies of the Gettysburg Address , in Lincoln’s own handwriting, which omit “under God”. Take a chill pill, will you?

  2. I see we have an Obama apologist present.
    There was nothing curious about Obama’s desecration of Lincoln’s address. It was willful and intentional. Obama is leading attacks on Christianity in this country, beginning with his social engineering of our military which is conducting unprecedented persecution of Christian Chaplains and military members. Obama is a Marxist, it’s becoming clearer everyday.
