Christians of America, Here Are Four More Reasons Not To Put “In God We Trust” On Our Currency

Atheist attorney Michael Newdow has long attempted to get “In God We Trust” removed from U.S. currency, trying to employ as his tools both the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

But there are other, less legalistic reasons to strike religious verbiage from the nation’s coins and bills, says Redditor ENTeePJ. What’s more, those reasons might even strike Christians as halfway convincing.

Kentucky Board Officially Approves Tax Incentives Worth Up To $18,000,000 for Noah’s Ark Theme Park

After more than a year of litigation, the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority met yesterday to officially approve the tax incentives worth up to $18 million for Ken Ham‘s Noah’s Ark Theme Park (a.k.a. Ark Encounter).

However, earlier this year, a judge overruled that decision, declaring that the park’s status as a tourist attraction trumped the fact that it was a Christian park hiring Christian employees.

Invoking God, Prominent GOP’ers Write Letters for Dennis Hastert, Sexual Abuser of Four Boys

More than 40 people of prominence have written letters to a judge, requesting mercy for Dennis Hastert, the former Speaker of the House who is awaiting sentencing in a bank fraud and perjury case.

Formally, Hastert is merely facing the music for illegally-structured cash withdrawals, and for lying to federal authorities about what the cash was for. But it’s Hastert’s sexual abuse of at least four boys under his care that has most people a lot more upset. The cash was hush money that Hastert paid to someone who knew his secret. The statute of limitations has run out on the child abuse, so Hastert faces at most six month in jail — for skirting banking regulations, and for his fibs to the FBI.

But even that measly sentence is inhumane, believes Tom DeLay, the former U.S. House Majority Leader, and no stranger to financial shenanigans himself.
