    I do agree that not all Christians are "young earthers" but it looks like Secretary of Education(what a joke) Betsy deVos is and she wants federal funds to go to schools that teach creationism.

    Voucher Schools Championed By Betsy DeVos Can Teach Whatever They Want. Turns Out They Teach Lies.

    These schools teach creationism, racism and sexism. They’re also taking your tax dollars.

    These schools are among thousands in the United States that participate in private school choice programs, which most often come in the form of state-level voucher or tax credit scholarships. Voucher programs offer publicly funded financial aid to parents for private schools. Tax credit programs usually offer individuals or corporations tax credits if they donate to a scholarship granting organization, which in turn offers private school scholarships based on various criteria, including income.

    President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos have openly championed such programs and have encouraged states to embrace school choice, arguing that voucher programs give parents an alternative to low-performing public schools.
    Denying science, keeping kids from learning about the real world is a great way to prevent working-class Americans from bettering themselves; one might begin to think the destruction of public education is a long wished-for goal by a certain element. Trump’s election may be the second coming for creationism in schools
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    You forgot to mention that your leaders invoke God when they make their oaths.

    Do you know that, "In God We Trust," is the official motto of the USA?
    Do you know why?

    So....it's militant atheists that throw their ideology to people's faces!


    Anyway....start a thread for it if you want us to go on along that line.
    You are referring to stuff that is ignored, not forgotten. And E Pluribus Unum should be our motto, according to our actual founding fathers, rather than "In God We Trust", according to born again, evangelical Christians of the 50s (when those things were put onto our money, into our Pledge, made the motto). That is an attempt to appeal to the masses of Christians, not evidence of a God.

    e pluribus unum
    One from many; one out of many.
    Motto of the United States of America, indicating that a single nation was made by uniting many states or a reference to the many states in the United States as being one nation. It may have been adapted from a line in Virgil's poem, "Moretum" which deals with the making of a salad and reads color est e pluribus unus, probably the first use of the phrase in any form. There was also an essay by Richard Steele in The Spectator, August 20, 1722, which opens with the Latin phrase Exempta juvat spiris e pluribus unus: "Better one thorn plucked than all remain."
