I follow the great Wil Wheaton on Twitter and he posted the following this evening:
Money House GOP spent today on creating jobs: $0. Money GOP spent on reaffirming "In God We Trust": $215,000. We are governed by children
I, personally, am boggled by this. So many are job-less at the moment, struggling just to get by on the bare minimum, but a religious statement on our currency is somehow prioritized over that? Separation of Church and State has sadly become non-existent to the point that it is affecting decisions that the government is making. Who cares if our currency says "In God We Trust" if many don't even see that money due to their unemployed status? I'm curious to see what people here think of the decision the government made today to put funds into reaffirming a religious statement over creating jobs. Discuss.
