    Just playing devil's advocate here, b/c I could really care less about money and I don't believe in the vengeful man-like Bible god...but what about separation of church and state?

    Our pledge of alligence states "one nation under God".... Our founding fathers fled England not just because of taxation but for religious freedom. We swear on a bible before we take the stand. Our president is sworn into office by placing his hand on the bible and taking an oath. I've tried to look at this issue through the eyes of an antheist but just can't get past these facts. It just simpley the way our country was born. No one says you have to believe in him. OK take Christmas - lots of atheist celebrate it even though they aren't believers. Make sense?

    Under God was added to the Pledge in the 1950s as an anti-commie measure which is ironic since the pledge was written by a socialist.

    That's partly correct from what I've read.

    I'd prefer he(or she eventually) be sworn in with hand on Constitution. Sure, the first wave of British colonists were seeking religious freedom, but Jefferson, Franklin, and the other heavy hitters were more concerned with the writings of Locke than the Bible IMO. And I have no problem with what people choose to believe, I just added that caveat in my previous post for the sake of clarity. Definitely not an atheist, more of an Earth worshipping heathen.

    Great food for thought either way, all in good fun.
