The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) filed a law suit to block the engraving of “In God We Trust” at the Capital Visitor Center in Washington D.C. The full story can be read here.
I do have one problem with some of their figures.
“’In God We Trust’ excludes and treats as outsiders the millions of adult Americans, including as many as 15% of all adults, who are not religious, i.e., atheists, agnostics, skeptics and freethinkers, none of whom possesses a belief in a god; the mandated language diminishes nonbelievers by making god-belief synonymous with citizenship,” the foundation’s complaint states.
The problem I have is with the 15%. My guess is they are pulling numbers from the ARIS poll that came out earlier this year. That number (15%) does not accurately portray the number of those who are “not religious.” More can be read on that here.
