Letter to the Editor
Tuesday the House of Representatives passed a bill declaring “In God we Trust” as the national motto, apparently to send some sort of message that they are somehow morally superior to us lowly non-believing heathens. But the way I see it, what they did has the opposite effect.
From an atheist point of view what I see is that if they use God’s name for a political stunt it just shows me that they don’t really believe in God either. If I believed in God I wouldn’t insult him using his name for personal political gain or to defile his name by printing it on money. It sends a message that God and government is all about the money.
Someone who actually believes in God and trusts in God simply would not do that. So if they really don’t believe in God – then why should I? As an atheist I find myself having more respect for the name of God than these so called Christian politicians do. If I’m damned for not believing then they are too. My message to them – see you in Hell.
