THE LAW IS THE LAW. So if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words “under God” to be on our money, then, so be it. I say, “so be it,” because I would like to be a law-abiding citizen. I say, “so be it,” because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions. I would like to think that those people have the American public’s best interest at heart.
BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I’D LIKE? Since we can’t pray to God, can’t Trust in God and cannot post His commandments in Government buildings, I don’t believe the Government and it’s employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God our government is eliminating from may facets of American life.
I’d like my mail to be delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, “it’s just another day.” I’d like the “US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays.” After all, it’s just another day.
I’m thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Thanksgiving, Good Friday and Easter. It shouldn’t cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be “politically correct.” In fact, I think our government should work on Sundays (initially setaside for worshipping God) because after all, our government says that it should be just another day.
What do you all think? If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the “minority opinions and begin, once again, to represent the majority” of ALL of the American people. SO BE IT…
