I could care less if we replaced "Under God" with "Under Spaghetti Monster" or "Under Cthulhu". At least one would make the Pastafarians would be happy. If that was inserted during the cold war, I doubt you would let it be. Do you want to be held down by the noodly appendages? I don't want to be held down by a god. However, both are equal in the eyes of the government because they're both religions. Get it? When government, Cthulhu == God. The constitution did not say which is right, and it is irrelavent when you're talking about which the government can include. We're talking about ideas that cannot be proven or disproven and that are accepted on faith alone.
My view on the freedom of speech is that I don't care if people are offended by anything said. There's no amendment that makes people secure in their personal paradigm from outside opinions.
However, I believe that church and state should be very seperate. The only problem is that religion is so self-absorbed in it's struggle for survival that it forgoes it's intended purposes. It's a social institution turned into a living organism. I may be biased to dislike religion, but I'm also biased to disliking the government. Even if it pains us to be so meticulous in seperating that which is religions from the government, it will make things easier in the future when it comes to making decisions on religion and preventing America from theocrasizing. Because, face it, if the government chose to adopt an official religion, there's a 90% chance it wouldn't be yours.
