Got this in an email, anyone know if there is truth in it? I must admit, I didn't notice this:
It's not entirely accurate. There is only a small portion of Roosevelt's speech in the memorial, and the line that includes "so help us God" wasn;t included at all.
There might very well have been someone that remember the part where Roosevelt said "so help us God", and they might have felt it should have been included, but I don't think it was a conscious effort to leave it out. Considering who was in charge of the memorial (Bob Dole and the like), they wouldn't care about falling in line with what twisted individuals consider seperation of church and state.
Thanks, I had a feeling it was something like that. Should have thought of Snopes myself.
It's a beautiful memorial.
