In God We Rust Part II

Today, the US House of Representatives voted to approve a resolution to take a huge stinky dump on the principle of separation of Church and State.

In a 369-9 vote, the House reaffirmed that the national motto of the United States is 'In God we trust', which is utter bullcrap if you ask me, and my Congressman is NOT going to get my vote at the next election, I can tell you that.

The national motto of the United States is featured on the Seal of the United States as NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM: A New Secular Order. The Founders of this country firmly believed in separation of church and state, and the approval of this garbage resolution is akin to dumping septic tank contents into the Founders' tombs. It is extremely insulting that our elected representatives are taking such an ideological stand against secularism.

It is becoming apparent that we are no longer governed by 'Representatives', but are now ruled by a corrupt theocracy bent on granting political favors to equally corrupt Wall Street while keeping the obese masses poor, uneducated, and brainwashed into believing in bronze-age superstitions and in a false middle-eastern deity. The future is bleak; our government is a circus filled with silly, malevolent clowns.

We need way more than 'Occupy Wall Street'. We need to 'Occupy Congress'. Where are the atheist politicians? Who will be the first atheist President? I know you are out there. COME OUT OF THE CLOSET. It is not political suicide to do so. WE ARE STANDING BEHIND YOU... as long as you keep your hand off the Second Amendment.

  1. Your point is well taken.

    A quibble: "novus ordo seclorum" means "a new order for the ages." The de facto motto of the United States until 1954 was "e pluribus unum," meaning "Out of many, one." I've always thought that was the most appropriate motto for the U.S. of the many candidates.
