"In God We Trust," the 10 commandments in the courtrooms, and government officials praying before a public meeting in a government building are all unconstitutional. These all favor Christianity, and they all violate the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment.

We are NOT, and never were, a Christian nation, and politicians need to learn about our founding fathers and founding documents in order to realize this fact. The Constitutional was drafted an entirely secular document, as it states as the very first amendment that the government shall not pass a law which will help to establish a religion, and that they may not favor one religion over another. In addition, the Constitution states that no person running for public office should be required to take a religious test. If they need more proof that we're NOT a Christian nation, they can always read the Treaty of Tripoli, which states that "The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."

It's time that the American people hold these bigoted government officials accountable for these clear violations of the Constitution and rectify these violations by taking "In God We Trust" off of our currency; doing away with the motto "In God We Trust" entirely, as it favors Christianity over all other religions since "God" is exclusive to Christianity; taking the 10 commandments down from the courtrooms since it's exclusive to Christianity; and abolishing public prayer by government officials in public governmental buildings, because their prayers are entirely exclusive to Christianity and favor one religion over others.
