In God We Trust

Just finished watching In God We Trust  http://bit.ly/zzFmNB  a documentary by Scott Burdick.

I would like to thank him for this piece of work that exposes the ignorance and hypocrisy of the religious fundamentalists who insist on making the United States a Christian country.

The film also has an opportunity of showing the views of members of a few different religions (most of them equally ignorant, hypocritical and bigoted).

I would like to draw your attention to a couple of comments by a guy named Nick around  1:02:53 and 1:13:11, they are very good.

And Barry Lynn’s considerations that start at 1:18:08 are great (the guy who comes right after him is a mega-hypocrite).

This film should have everyone who lives in the Unites States very worried. And for that matter, the rest of the world should be wary.

I think that many of the people in the film should take a look at the First Amendment of the Constitution and reinforce the fact that the United States is a country founded on principles of FREEDOM and not religion. Take a look at Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli http://1.usa.gov/ygHRuf that took effect in 1797.

I believe that every single human has the right to believe or not believe in whatever they choose. Nobody has the right to impose their particular set of morals on anybody else.

I recommend you give the film a look and make your own conclusions.
