ABSTRACT
The article calls on the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy to correct its omission of the phrase under God from the text of then U.S. President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address published on its blue pamphlet. It mentions that the omission was deemed a ramification of the secularist ideology among liberal scholars and another effort to promote separation of church and state. The five earliest copies of the Gettysburg address and their differences are also explained.
