StarFire: The Supreme Court has ruled that this is not unconstitutional. What? Which case was this? Do you have a link? Government recognition of [a] God does not in any way establish a state religion, Not a specific one, but it establishes that the government does believe in *some* religion(s). nor does it discriminate against religions, It discriminates against any polytheistic religion, as well as atheism (if you consider that a religion). and neither does it interfere with any individual's practice of religion. No, it does not. Referring back to the first part of your sentence, when the government acknowledges God, the important thing is not which God, but that it acknowledges God. And government's not supposed to recognize an establishment of religion. Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and any other religion are all "establishment of religions", are they not? And they all believe in God. So, by acknowledging God, the government is automatically acknowledging and I might even go so far as saying endorsing any number of religions. And that is unconstitutional. The government should not be recognizing ANY religion, or any religious terms. They should not be holding prayer sessions (during official sessions, anyway) or engraving the names of religious deity(ies) on our coins. Because that's recognizing religion(s).
