"In God We Trust" and "Under God" we all added to their respective places in American culture in the 1950's

I'd like to comment that letters to the editor are people's opinions, and really mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. (they are all someone's opinions)[1]

Also out founding fathers did not found this country on christian (or any other) religious beliefs. They founded it on religious freedom (so if you believe or don't believe is out of the question)

Freedom of religion means being able to chose your religion (and if you don't believe in any religion, they you have that right too)
 1. Does the majority of Americans really want to see atheist's kicked out of America. I want a source for this.

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

I'm sure she'd zealously light the witches pyre.

Maybe god belief is a dna code, it certainly doesn't require thought, compassion, decency, 'humanity'.
