I'm Back

As always, M-Fuge was a huge success. Students were involved in hands on mission projects all week and God was certainly doing wonderful things. However, I am happy to be home.

I noticed that a federal judge in CA rejected a lawsuit on Monday from an atheist who said that having "In God We Trust" on US currency violates his first amendment rights. That is good news, but the judge's comments on his decision were interesting. He said that the four words were a national motto and had "nothing whatsoever to do with the establishment of religion."

So, god has nothing to do with religion - interesting.

If that language is going to stay, that (or something similar) has to be the legal analysis, otherwise it will be struck down in violation of the establishment clause.

Rex,

I agree with your comments, but what the heck does the motto have to do with then? I'm not arguing that since we have "In God We Trust" on our currency that we obviously have an established religion, but I would like to hear the judge's comments not only on what the motto doesn't mean, but what it does mean.
