We start with an article out of the website newser.

It states- It's already stamped on our coins, but a group of lawmakers would like see our national motto get even greater play.

The U.S. House will vote on a bill today that would strengthen the phrase "In God We Trust" and push schools and other government and public buildings to display the motto.

You've seen the same push here in East Texas.

It seems after years of letting this issue go, Americans are ready to step into the ring and say you can believe in what you want, but we believe in God and want that back in our government buildings.

The measure states that the phrase"In God We Trust" has been an "integral" part of the country; approving it would show that "In God We Trust" is not only written in the halls of our federal buildings, but it is a bedrock upon which our nation is built," said a bill sponsor.

The measure has 64 co-sponsors. But Politico reports that not everyone is on board

In one committee report, five House Democrats warn the legislation "creates unnecessary and excessive government entanglement with religion.

Since when have politicians had trouble with government imposing more government and entangling our lives?

We've had to listen to everything else. Why is religion so bad?

The passage of this resolution would, as Justice O'Connor warned, send a message to the American people that our government favors religion.

And specifically one type of religion over another, in violation of the endorsement test. It will need a two-thirds vote to pass.

Well our government was founded on religious principals.

And for those who don't believe in God and think he's a fairy tale, what do you have to be afraid of?

That's my point of view, wha'ts yours?

So just what is so Bright about you Self-God Liberals who propose the idea of Family Planning, funded of course with other people’s money, that advocates aborting the very thing that creates a family. LIKE CHILDREN,,HELLO. How about that Liberal Oxymoronic thing you name SOCIAL SECURITY, which now has no security because you aborted 50 million legal American souls who should be walking the earth today to fund it?

You call for Social justice and propose your Socialist Social security, yet any American who can think, walk and chew gum at the same time can look around and see how oxymoronic your emotional "FEEL GOOD' terminology and ideology ends up. It is the insane world of social justice based on the unjust theft of honest labor to be dispensed to the dishonest slacker. Every breath you take, every move you make shows there is NO Justice and NO Security in your failed Socialism. Just ask Soviet Russia.

You mock Rick Perry who may not be the brightest bulb in the lamp but he at least knows that it is Iran that is the source from whom all terrorism flows. At least he does his own thinking rather than plagiarize some Nit-Wit U-Tube Liberal talking point to do his thinking. Now there is some qualitative sources of cognitive reasoning. Try this one on instead ‘ In lumine Tuo, Videbimus Lumen.” The beginning of Knowledge is to realize"There is a God and it’s NOT YOU."

The innocuous Perry is nothing compared to what you destructive Liberals have given America, but your days of delusion are coming to an end. The adults are taking back the country so prepare to pull your own weight in this painful world of reality or perish in your own foolishness like you should have years ago.

...you uninformed twits unable to think free - this is what you gave America;

The term "dimwits" belong to people who have names like Sheila Jackson, Michael Jackson, Jesse Jackson, and Sheila Jackson Lee who all believe themselves to be "Action Jackson" but the insanity of their Liberal insane brains prevent them accomplishing anything real in life, therefore they must redistribute the wealth and ideas of others. Yes even to them there is a God,,,,and it is the one seen in the mirror. I hope this “ In Sheila We Trust” Jackson knows how to moon walk on the Lake of Fire.

The nothingness of which you speak is what awaits you in the afterlife, like all Liberal Self Gods who think their failed finite secular progressive knowledge overcomes the wisdom of the infinite one from whom all real blessings flow, and all human rights originate.

...and while you concern yourselves with this nothingness, a government plans your demise. Go back to sleep dimwits, ignorance is your bliss.

Separation of Church and State is indeed needed because the Church needs protection from the state and no one Church should ever be in a position in a free society to force its will upon a free people. But separation of God from state? Never! For when we take God out of the equation then we are left to the mercy of the human frailties of selfish and narrow and fallible minds. This was never the intention of the founders who consistantly refered to him as the divine hand of providence.

When a Government which was designed for the Justice Business attempts to dabble in and take control of the Mercy business which was designed for the Church to handle, We get neither Justice in the dishonest redistribution of honest wealth,,,,nor Mercy in the enablement of dependency of human beings of entitlement who were designed to create, like the creator whose creative image they were created. Separation of Government Justice from Church mercy is the separation of Church and state intended.

James Madison - 4th President & father of Our Constitution
“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”
'We have staked the whole of all our political Institutions upon the capacity of mankind for Self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, , to sustain ourselves according to The Ten Commandments of God"

Maybe if God wants to be in our schools and courtrooms..maybe God would not mind paying taxes...

Ever think of trying to earn you own way in life like a real human being instead of defaulting to taxing the living Jesus out of every producive citezen you Liberal leeches can attach yourselves to to get by in this world? Taxing others as your only ammunition leads to getting slain by your enemy because sooner or later you always run out of other people's money. Man up and get in the real battle and leave the world a better place for having known you instead of diminishing the earth as a leech.

The Constitution doesn't say we can't honor or defer to God over an idol or false god. It says not to repsect an Establishment of religion, meaning putting one church over another. The Constitution doesn't say separation of church and state. It says all churches must be treated equally, and not persecute those who are of different faiths. Darn, yet another Judeo-Christian value knitted into the Constitution.

Just tell the Deomocrats that it is the new Socialist God Government in whom they trust, and from whom all our blessings must flow and they will all jump on board with both feet.
