I have just been apprised of a lawsuit being filed by a Wisconsin-based atheist organization that is opposed to plans for "In God We Trust" to be engraved on a building at the Capitol in Washington. These people think that it's---are you sitting down, effendi?---Un-American. The hypocrisy of the atheists is just astounding.
"In God We Trust" is a national motto going all the way back to Colonial times. It's on our currency, and I believe it's also on the Constitution and/or the Declaration of Independence. The atheists' lamest argument is that they're afraid that we're offending the Jewish faith. Oh, stop! If an atheist is opposed to any faith, why would they worry about the Jews or the Christians?
To me, this is a grab for attention. I had no idea there was actually a national organization devoted to atheism until I read this article, accessible online on Yahoo!, among other places. As a Christian myself, I find this to be disturbing and distressing. The lawsuit has no merit, in my opinion, and won't get very far. The Founding Fathers were men of diverse religions (Quakers, Christians, et al), and this is one tradition that should not be expunged to appease one particular group.
