In God We Still Trust

A friend sent me this video and when I first watched it and heard the song, it brought tears to my eyes. Play it and see if you don't feel the same way.

This song was written by Bill and Kim Nash and performed for the first time in March 2005 by Diamond Rio. While performing, Diamond Rio received an immediate standing ovation, and continues to do so every time they perform it.

Sadly, major radio stations wouldn't play it because it was considered politically incorrect. Consequently, the song was never released to the public - until now. This song has now been released on a new album by Diamond Rio. But, it is still not being played on the radio.

I wonder why that is? Could it be that it should be renamed, "In 'the omnipotent being of a thousand names' we still trust"? I remember the Easter holiday, and we all got candy from the Easter bunny. I remember when Halloween was that fun holiday when we dressed up in scary costumes and we all got candy (again!). And don't get me started on Christmas and Santa Claus. Now they're called Spring Break, Fall Break, and Winter Break.

Give me a BREAK!

God, the Almighty, the Creator, is known by many names, and whoever you believe in or whatever you call Him, He is still who I trust.

In this day and age, when Viagra can run commercials every other hour, we still can't say the "G" word without offending someone. How very sad.

Odd that I had never heard this song.

Very, very moving. Thank you for helping me feel better about my day.

Not so odd when you consider that no radio station would play it. A crime in my opinion. Obviously they think it violates someone's religious "rights", rather like trying to take "one Nation under God" out of the pledge of allegiance.

Although I am a Christian and will "witness" any chance I get, it makes no difference to me what God you choose to worship, or if any at all. This was part of our roots, our heritage, and identifies where are morals are founded as a nation.

IMO, it is purely a selfish act to demand that this phrase be removed, or to ban this song from the airwaves, and has nothing whatsoever to do with a person's religious beliefs or background.

Such prattle invokes my favorite phrase; "Get over yourself".

Glad I could provide some uplift to your day. It made mine too.
