"Atheists would like us to believe that they are being persecuted because we live in a country with "In God We Trust" on our currency....and "Under God" in our Pledge of Allegiance....this is NOT persecution....this is living in a Christian nation founded on Christian principles. This is the way this country has been for hundreds of years. It was not changed during this generation simply to make your lives harder for your beliefs. Stop crying about it....everyone deals with unfair issues....whether it be race, religion, income....whatever. Life is hard and it isn't fair. Get over it. And here's some food for thought....you don't believe in God....well, I don't believe in atheists. I think many people like to profess atheism because then they aren't burdened by having to live up to a higher calling....but when it comes right down to it, I don't believe in true atheism. When an atheist is in a horrible car wreck and lies there dying, you can't tell me they won't call out to God in desperation....or when their innocent child is dying a terrible death by cancer, that they won't say a desperate prayer to God to help their child....you can (and probably will) argue with my beliefs, but they are what they are. Oh, and just for the record, I am not persecuting you or discriminating against you, I am simply exercising my right to free speech....in this beautiful Christian nation in which in God we trust."
