Jesus will merely rescue all people. So its not like it really allows for freedom of religion(as it wasnt meant to in first place). But replacing it is stupid. As long it was just in title and didnt require anything religious from people it shouldt really matter what was written there.
    You are completely wrong and know nothing about the separation of Church and State. You think you do but, you have been either taught wrong or just do not get it. Read the Federal Papers. Read what the forefathers say about this issue. Why it was set up. God goes not mean God the Father. What genius taught you that? It does not mean the Christian God. It means any God someone wants to worship.

    Jefferson said he hoped before his death every good American would be Unitariian.

    There were two Chaplains in the Continental Army. Both Anglican Christian. When one died Washington insisted the new one be of another religion, he won amongst protest. On Washingtons' death bed he was suffering and more than once
    refused to see a priest for last rites.

    Franklin often said " My God is not the God of Jesus, nor of Muhamad, nor of Buddha." They mostly belived in God the creator but, not in religion. They regularly along with Paine and others said things like this. They did believe in Freedon of Religion.

    Most of us are Christian, as am I, but, you have gotten it all wrong. I wonder how many others have this delusion?

    Yeah, you learned it from us.

    But yet there are approximately 11 Crosses on the Coat of Arms in a direct reference to religious symbology and God

    It's because the WASP countries are in a position of strength, and therefore is held at a higher standard than others. Same reason we expect Police officers to behave better than retards.

    "There are far more of us now"

    really?? if you check the gallup polls the number hasn't really changed from the 1950's to now. the only thing is that atheist are being more vocal and out of the open that's it. 94% believe in god , plus add the number of agnostics , atheist really make 2 or 3% of the general population in usa

    The number who tick the box and live by the general Christian ideals might not have changed, but I'm betting that the actual number of practising believers who rock up to Church once a week, say grace at dinner, tithe part of the salary to the Church or regularly pray has and I imagine it's a lot bigger than 2-3%.
    My home town has a church, but no priest. The 5 cars we used to see there on a Sunday now meet at one of the parishioners house on a Sunday. Not too long ago there were half a dozen Churches for sale in my state, none of those communities had a need for the buildings any more.
    Going by ID tags 99% of my first platoon were some sort of Christian, CofE, Catholic, Anglican type religion was stamped on most of our dog tags. We only had the one church goer in the platoon and he was not Christian, the rest of us were as big a mob of godless heathens that were ever grouped together. Personally I had to ask mum what sort of Christians we "were", Anglican IIRC. They wouldn't put jedi on my second set of dog tags, so they had no religion stamped on them instead.
    I'd be very surprised if the UK could gather up anywhere near 43 million practising/believing Christians from that list posted earlier, same goes for most of the rest of the countries listed.
