"In God We Trust" Under Much Deserved Attack

Winston-Salem Journal | Petition revives case on motto

While I don't expect a positive outcome in this case given the increasingly conservative (i.e., fundamentalist Christian) make up of the court, I applaud the effort. Having "In God We Trust" on our currency and government buildings is as ludicrous as it would be to replace it with something like "On Unicorns We Ride." We are not a Christian nation, and trusting in something that doesn't exist is delusional. We trust in science. We trust in reason and logic. We trust in our ability to improve our present world.

Separation of church and state is a core American value that must be strengthened.
