Norm Jenson at One Good Move provides a fascinating video that highlights the hostility and discrimination faced by atheists in this country, and poses the hypothetical of what popular reaction would be if our currency stated that there was no God.
But maybe it’s just a matter of marketing; perhaps atheists would be better received if they called themselves The Church of Latter Day Ain’ts.
And how about the “Agnostics.” I guess they’re kind of like political Independents, remaining non-committal, and switching their allegiances, depending on whether they feel the need to pray when the “shit hits the fan.” In fact, I suspect this accurately describes many more people than would care to admit it:
Many Blue Staters
Are Not really Atheists
Just Agnostically inclined
They just can’t accept
God on faith
They’d like a letter notarized and signed
They’ve also got their own agenda
Including changing the money supply
They want each Dollar Bill to say:
“In God We Trust, But Verify”
