Where’s the holy fear?

From FoxNews.com:

A federal judge on Monday rejected a lawsuit from an atheist who said having the phrase “In God We Trust” on U.S. coins and dollar bills violated his First Amendment rights.

U.S. District Judge Frank C. Damrell Jr. said the minted words amounted to a secular national slogan that did not trample on Michael Newdow’s avowed religious views…

I’m glad for the ruling; I grieve at the logic.

I’m sure God loves having His name tossed around as a mere “secular national slogan.”

"secular national slogan" seems to be just about the amount of respect for God that a great many american 'christians' show. Quite sad. YHWH, on the other hand, generally gets a little more respect everywhere. In our culture, God is simply an expression of some kind of spiritual or religious being or force. Sad.
