This is a matter that needs
to come down in the middle.
Use his name at appropriate
times, but not at all events.
It is not that we lack believers among our leadership. I am certain that many of them do believe in a creator and in a divine master of the universe. Some of them might even pray on occasion. But there seems to be a certain self-consciousness about God on the part of our politicians, our intellectual elite, our media personalities, our cultural spokesmen - a certain anxiety and unease about the public use of His name. They are going well beyond the letter of the law in the second commandment, Thou shalt not utter the name of God in vain. Not only are they not uttering God's name in vain; they are not uttering God's name, period.
