“In God We Trust”?

According to this article, the US Congress just affirmed “In God We Trust” as our national motto.

This bothers me. We should not have a religious motto as our “national motto”. We were created as a secular nation by a bunch of Christians and Deists.  We have freedom of religion and a separation of church and state.

This is a move towards fundamentalism.

I’m a believer myself. I’m not irreligious. I believe in God. However, not everyone in this country does. Nor should they have to.
