Dream a Little Dream of Me.

Rumor Has It

I have it through the grapevine (take that for what it’s worth) that there is currently an Atheist in the United States Congress and that this Congressperson intends to “come out” as such on the 12th of this month.

Man, wouldn’t the fundies have a conniption over that? Personally, I’d love to see more non-theists, atheists, and theists who support the separation of church and state as intended by the Constitution and the Founding Fathers elected to office.

Short rant on religion and money below the fold.

I’m about damned sick and tired of having religious opinion dictate policy in this country, whether or not I personally identify with said religion. It’d be nice to see the First Amendment restored.

As an aside on that note, Kristine points out that the first truly legal currency in quite a few years has been minted. In a case of cosmic coincidence, the finally legal tender was minted in Philadelphia. Javier? What else have you been up to up there in the City of Brotherly Shove?

For those of you about to go all doofus insane about “Christian Country Amen” and “It’s always been there” blah blah blah, save your breath and go read a history book.

Straight from the United States Treasury
:

The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War. Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase received many appeals from devout persons throughout the country, urging that the United States recognize the Deity on United States coins. From Treasury Department records, it appears that the first such appeal came in a letter dated November 13, 1861. It was written to Secretary Chase by Rev. M. R. Watkinson, Minister of the Gospel from Ridleyville, Pennsylvania…

That is all.

  1. Janie,

    I just got back from a DVAU (http://www.dvau.org/) meeting were I met the speaker, Secular Coalition (http://www.secular.org/) director Lori Lipman Brown. She confirmed that indeed tomorrow on her website, she will be revealing the name of a non-theist Congressman. She wouldn’t say who, but she did admit that it was a “he” (my money’s on either Bernie Sanders or Barney Frank).
