There was never a nation in the world that puts its whole trust in god. It is a statement made on insufficient evidence. Leaving out the gamblers, the burglars, and the plumbers, perhaps we do put our trust in god after a fashion. But after all, it is an overstatement.

      Indeed, I think the Congress that decided to include In god we trust in the your currency should have listened to Twain, they would have left it out.

        Unfortunately, this country still languishes under the legacy of the early believers who emigrated here seeking religious freedom but left a tradition of intolerance instead. So much for the fairness of belief systems! Be safe, my friend!

          Oh yes, there will be freedom as long as am not in power but forget all freedoms when I get the mantle, that is religious freedom!

            The freedom to believe my way and my way only! Exactly! Now, as Pope Mak, can you do something about that? Love you, buddy!

            First and foremost, every one has the right to believe as they do and to freedom of conscience! Threats of divine punishment should not be used to scare little children from pinching candy, it is most likely the parents fault. If they didn’t pass near a candy bar, the children wouldn’t have noticed the candy.
