If you want to hear me rant, just mention ceremonial deism. The courts have stated the the god in In God We Trust is so meaningless that it is not religious. Yet, citizens still use the fact the In God We Trust (IGWT) is our motto to continue the myth that the U.S. is a Christian nation. Yes, maybe to you justices IGWT is so ridiculous that it is meaningless, but to millions of Americans, it says, "We are a Christian Nation." E. Pluribus Unim is much more appropriate for our diverse nation. We do not want to spend decades in congress arguing about whether salvation is predetermined or whether god is a trinity or a unity. We just want to minimize human suffering. Get gods out of government and let's solve some problems.

Thanks. I fixed it.

Can't agree more. "In God We Trust" is absurd, and completely counter to the intentions of "The Founding Fathers".

But I have to add..."billions" of Americans? Might want to get that fact right...
