My only point is that there is NOT a hard line. No one is compelled to believe in any religion. Some religious words here and there such as on coins are not a violation. Even the Constitution closes with the word "Lord" capital letters. Neither establish a church.
And my only point is our government was intended to remain completely neutral regarding religious beliefs. Which is why the language of any relligious belief should not appear on a government building. Also no relligious test is in the 1st amendment of the constitution~
The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species. Hitch~
