    The term "God" is so generic that it's basically meaningless, inert and utterly harmless.

    You can slap God on whatever you want and even an old battle ax of an agnostic/atheist like me couldn't even give a care.

    Because the next question out of my mouth is... have you kiddies been paying attention? That correct... "Which God?" Ask the Moral Orals that and watch them go, "Hamana hamana... you know... God." Ahhh, that certainly that narrows it down.

    The only thing really pisses me off is the time and effort(not to mention taxpayer dollars) that's constantly being wasted on this stupid, meaningless God shit.

    "I think we should let Jesus take the wheel to steer us out of our country's current tail-spin." [/religious idiot]
    Good luck with that.

    To quote Anthony during the top 10 country songs "Jesus take the wheel, I can't fucking drive."

    I hate this argument. There is only one religion that God as the term for their deity, and that's Christianity and its derivatives. Quit pretending otherwise. When you say In God We Trust you are not talking about Allah.

    And this.

    I agree this is a complete waste of time, but the article made it sound like the Republicans shoved this through. Assuming all but one Republican voted for it, 155 members of other parties (obviously most of them Democrat) had to also vote for it.

    Pussy Dems don't want to be tagged as anti-American/anti-God.

    This (again). After it came to a vote they're pretty much holding them hostage for a yes vote.

    And the whole reason it replaced our E Pluribus Unum motto was because of the Red Scare in the 50's.

    They work on salary. This didn't cost any extra, so that argument is out the window. And any frivolous bill being voted in takes up time that could be spent stealing your money or curtailing your rights, so let then vote on stupid shit all day long.

    That's fine, but the same could have applied to the majority of the Republicans. The article is written as if the entire Republican Party in the house shoved this down the Democrats' throats. I'm sure a few people sponsored the bill, and just like you said everyone voted for it because they were expected to by their constituents.

    I have a huge problem with wasting time on this bullshit... I just didn't like the way the article was phrased.

    Fuck you know what, I almost agree with this. We would probably be better off if every day the only thing Congress voted on was what to have for lunch.

    This is a side issue but I think voting "present" should be illegal. If you want the job, do it. You can't beg to play ball then pass up your turn at bat.

    I wonder if Obama spoke to God while he was piecing together this jobs plan that God wants so badly...

    LOL at Carney flubbing that quote. Though...I would've never known. I'm not very religiousy.

    The religion haters don't mind when democrats invoke god, because they're not taken seriously as actually meaning it.

    No, it's not. This is a common western misconception. In fact, one of Islams major prayers ( I don't know which one) goes "There is no god but Allah." Only Judeo Christianity uses God as a proper noun.

    Because if there's one thing God cares about, it's semantics.
