Via JMG: GOP Ensures Job Creation By Forcing Religious Slogans Onto Public Buildings

Jobs! Jobs! Jo...oh wait. JESUS comes first in the United Christianist States of Theocracy.
Nobody has proposed changing the national motto, but the House is set Tuesday to vote on a bill that assure that the phrase “In God We Trust” stays put. The measure, which is sponsored by Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), would encourage public buildings, schools and government facilities to display the phrase. It declares that “In God We Trust” and sentiments behind it have been an “integral” part of the United States, and “in times of national challenge or tragedy, the people of the United States have turned to God as their source for sustenance, protection, wisdom, strength, and direction.”
RELATED: "In God We Trust" was adopted as the national motto in 1956, two years after the Catholic Church affiliated Knights of Columbus successfully lobbied Congress to add the words "under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance. One month after the change to the Pledge was made, "In God We Trust" was mandated to be posted on paper currency.
