Is the phrase "one nation under God" accurate of the US?

Recently, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- standing in the U.S. Capitol Building -- referenced the Pledge saying: "One nation . . . indivisible, with liberty ..." omitting "under God" from the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is working to strip "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance arguing that it somehow violates the First Amendment by establishing a religion. They are making good headway.

There are even briefs to the court stating that having children say "one nation under God" is a form of child abuse...

My question is this:

At what point is it an insult to God to claim a country is under His direction and protection?

The United States "legally" murders millions of babies and senior citizens every year.
The United States has outlawed bringing the Bible to school.
The United States has outlawed prayer in the schools.
The United States has outlawed celebrating Jewish and Christian holidays in the schools and other public and government places.
Most religious themed monuments and other references to the religion the country was founded on have been removed.
The current "president" of the country is an antisemitic Muslim covert operative.
The vast majority of Americans (including its "leaders") no longer attend religious services nor is religious faith an active part of their lives.
Most American Christians are biblically illiterate and most American Jews fare no better.
Positive mention of God is all but absent from the airwaves and media of the country while religious people are routinely depicted as lunatics and extremists and God is frequently mocked directly.

Do you think God considers the USA to be "one nation under Him?" Or does He more likely view the country as an infidel empire working against His Will?

Is the phrase "one nation under God" accurate of the US?
Is the phrase "one nation under God" when applied to the US an insult to God's Righteousness?

Should it be removed from the pledge?
(And should subjects of the Kingdom of God say a pledge to ANY nation?)

What are your thoughts?
