BROTHER RED SKELTON
Red Skelton was a man of deep faith and staunch patriotic fervor, extremely proud of his 58 year membership in the Masons and the Shriners.
Major changes were rapidly taking place in our society that threatened to undermine the very founding principles upon which our great nation was built.
Prayer was banned from our schools. Tens of millions of Americans were rendered speechless. Red Skelton became their voice.
Red’s heartfelt sentiments, passionately expressed in his explanation of the great significance and nobility of every word in The Pledge of Allegiance, were read twice into the Congressional Record, and received forty-two awards.
Red Skelton’s profound message about love of God and country is as important to every American today as it was on the day he wrote it.
It is time for each of us to revisit Red’s message, and to share it with a whole new
generation of young Americans who are seeking leadership and guidance.
