>Atheists Want To Eliminate "In God We Trust"

>By Don White

Windermere, FL – One argument of the atheists to force eliminating any reference to God on our money or public buildings is tht it was only in 1957 and 1957, repectively, that we started using “In God We Trust.”

They say we only did that during the Cold War as a counter slogan to the godless commies in the Soviet Empire. Well, I have news: the Cold War is about to heat up again between Russia and the United States. George Friedman, author of The Next 100 Years, backs up my assertion.

How do I know this? I can feel it in my bones. When you study that evil empire man Vladimir Putin you get a strange feeling tht this man wants his empire back. He’s already attacked little Georgia and with oil diplomacy he is trying to force Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and the Baltic States back into the fold as well. That we know.

If Mr. Obama wakes up soon enough, the U.S. once again will boldly oppose such revanchist moves and will stop him in his tracks. How can we? Because we’re the superpower, he’s not. We control the air and the oceans and have the latest technology. America produces as much oil as Russia. Did you know that? We can force him into surrender, or at least freeze up our relations with Russia if they pull any funny stuff. There will be plenty of time for detente later when things normalize.

We can do this

Or should I say, a Bush presidency could pull this off. What Obama will do is anyone’s guess. But my bet is that he will be forced to not back down to a tyrant like Putin whom he does not like, anyway. The only way he wouldn’t would be if he, somehow, is already subservient to some Arab sultan or to Putin and Medvedev themselves. Unthinkable? Not really. He was brought up in a home that had a Frank Davis communist influence.

Notice, I’m talking about communism to which I believe Russian leaders still espouse. True, they’ve become enlightened capitalists, too. But so has China, but they are the biggest repressive communist nation on the globe. So don’t put anything past the Russian thugs currently running that country.

Here’s the story. You decide:

Atheists Sue to Kill D.C. ‘In God We Trust’ Engraving

MADISON, Wis. — The nation’s largest group of atheists and agnostics filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to block an architect from engraving “In God We Trust” and the Pledge of Allegiance at the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington.

Since the current economic crisis started, Porter Stansberry’s dead-on predictions have caught the attention of CNN, Barron’s, and Forbes…

That’s why many of his readers are now much wealthier, like Donald Scheidt, for example: “You helped make the last two years of my father’s life something great… you made him a millionaire.”

The Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation’s lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in western Wisconsin, claims the taxpayer-funded engravings would be an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

The House and Senate passed identical resolutions this month directing the Architect of the Capitol to engrave “In God We Trust” and the pledge in prominent places at the entrance for 3 million tourists who visit the Capitol each year.

The resolution came in response to critics who complained Congress spent $621 million on the new three-story underground center without paying respect to the nation’s religious heritage. The center opened in December after years of construction.

The foundation is seeking a court order to stop the engravings, which the Congressional Budget Office estimates will cost less than $100,000.

“In God We Trust” has been the national motto since 1956 and has appeared on U.S. currency since 1957.

The lawsuit says both the motto and the words “under God” in the pledge were adopted during the Cold War as anti-communism measures. Engraving them at the entrance to the U.S. Capitol would discriminate against those who do not practice religion and unfairly promote a Judeo-Christian perspective, it says.

The group also is challenging the constitutionality of the National Day of Prayer in federal court. In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that foundation members could not sue to stop parts of President George W. Bush’s faith-based initiative.
