And more time-wasting by our so-called "fiscally responsible" House of Representatives
Posted by Jill | 5:09 AM
Is this the best use of the House's time?
Republican Rep. John Kline is a sponsor of a resolution in the U.S. House that would reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the national motto and encourages the posting of the motto on government buildings and in public schools. The resolution has raised the ire of secular groups who say the resolution is unnecessary and that it is discriminatory against non-believers as well as faithful Americans whose religious traditions do not involve a Judeo-Christian god.

The resolution reads in part, “Whereas the sentiment, ‘In God We Trust’, has been an integral part of United States society since its founding; Whereas if religion and morality are taken out of the marketplace of ideas, the very freedom on which the United States was founded cannot be secured; Whereas in times of national challenge or tragedy, the people of the United States have turned to God as their source for sustenance, protection, wisdom, strength, and direction.”

This really pisses me off. They still don't get separation of church and state do they?
