If God can't be in America...

So my mom likes to send me these crazy e-mails. Usually they are completely inappropriate and often times I get them at work. Tonight, she floated this doozey my way. What do you think of it? I found it pretty interesting.


THE LAW IS THE LAW

If the US government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.

And if that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

I would like to think that those people have the American public's best interests at heart.
BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?

Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe the Government and its employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.

I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the "US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays." After all, it's just another day.

I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.

I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."
In fact....

I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God...) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day....
What do you all think????


I think I like it. And, I think all athiests, liberals and commies should adhere to the practices outlined above, as well!

Unfortunately, somebody already tried and failed: http://www.becketfund.org/index.php/case/25.html. Never get between the government and a day off. Then again, everyday government isn't working is one less day they're looking for a way to spend more of our money, so maybe this isn't a bad thing.

Ohhh...giving them more time to spend our money. Didn't think about that. Point taken.

I knew that one would get you chatty, Chaz. ;)

In the words of JR: It's just a joke, folks!
