Any thoughts on the lawsuit upholding the Constitutionality of the use of those phrases?

Yes it should be, "Under Government" and "In Government We Trust".

Um, maybe "Under Government" but I cannot get behind (or even close to) "In Government We Trust"!!

lol, yes and it happens to be more true than any other matter unfortunately for us! If we really were under God, I don't think USA would have any death penalty and a lot of laws would change, for the worse in a lot of cases. I would choose the lesser of 2 evils if I could figure out which one that is!

Yeah, good luck with that!

Although if Christians would lose their fascination with Leviticus and The Law (when it suits them) and follow the laws of God according to Jesus, it wouldn't be so bad.

It would be "Hell" on the rich and powerful, though, because Jesus spoke out against both.

:oD :oD

Occasionally it strikes me as darkly amusing, to hear "Saints" quoted by Christians who were Druid Goddesses and Heroes, or to hear "trinity" concepts quoted by Christians, which was a Druidic concept, or the Solar Cross, etc.


Now it occurs to me, I wonder if that is what the "Christlike" Christians must think, listening to the rich and powerful defend their supremacy and favouritism using Jesus' supposed words.

Interesting concept. ^_^

Especially when Jesus himself said "the least among you here will lead and the greatest will be the least" (or words to that effect)

You know, servant's heart not ruler's heart.

Well I like to take this back to the Tower of Babel. Government is all one, they rule and control everything. I don't care if they are Dems and Republicans, that's all for show and to make propaganda. They already know what they are going do do, regardless of what the public votes. They are a parallel to the Tower of Babel. Growing stronger and stronger, they are about as close to being "God like" than any other powers. When the earthquake hit Hatti, my father said it's their punishment from god. I said yeah right, I'll believe the US government did it before god did it. They do have weapons that can do that.

I knew Obama was gong to be Prez before he even ran for Prez, I just saw his face once. I didn't have to vote, my vote didn't count because I knew it was going to be him.

I think it's going to stay as is, Under God and In God We Trust, because both are what the government thinks it is like. It's going to be up to the people to break the system, not the government, they like the general public being under God.
