Wednesday’s Piece

In the Report of the Constitutional Commission 1968 appeared the following:

“We therefore recommend that the new constitution should contain a brief, factual preamble and,  by a majority of four to one, that it should include an acknowledgement of the authority and guidance of Almighty God.” (Para 603)

One Commissioner thought that some would regard a reference to God in the Constitution as being out of place.

This is very interesting and it is perhaps astonishing that so little attention was focussed upon the questions arising. I believe in some sort of higher authority but I would not be so bold as to say that Almighty God is an indisputable fact!
