The US Pledge of Allegiance
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands: one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
It was not until 1954 that the US Congress added "under God." A British citizen and Presbyterian pastor George Docherty played a key role in persuading President Eisenhower to support the change. He had regularly sung "God Save the King" as a child in Scotland and resented the absence of reference to a divine being in the American pledge.
