Reading this column by Sally Quinn in the Washington Post set my teeth on edge, as I’m sure it will yours. Don’t click on the “read more” link and see the quote I’m about to give if you have a problem with high blood pressure or are prone to wanting to hurt kittens when you read something egregiously stupid:
This is a religious country. Part of claiming your citizenship is claiming a belief in God, even if you are not Christian.. We’ve got the Creator in our Declaration of Independence. We’ve got “In God We Trust” on our coins. We’ve got “one nation under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance. And we say prayers in the Senate and the House of Representatives to God.
Well isn’t that nice how she just writes atheists right out of the country by redefining citizenship?
Up until now, the idea of being American and believing in God were synonymous.
Only to morons like you.
