Home Depot Fires Man for Wearing "Under God" Pin: Video

By Rick Pearcey • October 29, 2009, 10:03 AM

But Trevor Keezer Is Not Backing Down: According to Fox News, Home Depot says wearing the pin violated company policy. In that case, Home Depot needs a policy adjustment. Big time.

Otherwise, milions of Americans who are unashamed of the Creator, unashamed of the facts of our Founding as a nation under God, unashamed of a Pledge of Allegiance that declares, "One Nation Under God," may decide as an act of stewardship to take what's left of their hard-earned paychecks and spend them elsewhere.

This is not about a private religion, subjective values, psychological "faith," or relativistic company policy.

This is about freedom under the fact of a knowable, verifiable, and rational Creator who has endowed human beings, created in His image, with "certain unalienable rights." 

That's the mainstream of American exceptionalism.

Home Depot may have just declared itself outside of that mainstream of liberty and freedom. And that, my friends, is an extreme position against who we are as a nation "conceived in liberty" by the Creator of liberty.  

Instead of being fired, Trevor Keezer ought to be promoted. He can take the job of the unfortunate person who decided "Under God" is bad for Home Depot. 

So what is it, Home Depot? When it comes to affirming who we are as Americans: Are you in, or are you out?
