While we continue to pay for our slurpees and other purchases with bills that contain the phrase "In God We Trust," more places are being hit with the "separation of church and state" clause: http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/07/14/life.grandcanyon.reut/index.html So in essence, we continue to see localized examples of religious expression eroding from public view while we still pledge to a nation "under god, with liberty and justice for all" *AND* continue to circulate fiat currency that makes reference to a supreme being while the ACLU takes shots at regional occurrences of religion. What I can't understand is why it really matters. Three decades for a plaque to be there is more a historical monument. Are those passages from the bible really going to cause trauma to anyone who reads them? As a nation, we really need to pick which side of the fence we want to be on -- but this precarious balance on top of the fence is just plain stupid. Either we, as a nation, believe in religion or we do not. But let's not blow sunshine up our own collective asses about the entire thing.
