Your additions to “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Protecting American Atheists” have been pouring in. Chris Prevas left some great suggestions on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page about taxpayer-funded references to our religious heritage:

Some ideas for the Complete Idiot's Guide: why stop at the federal level? Many localities need to change their names to avoid giving offense to atheists (after all the US Postal Service is a gov't-owned corporation and they have post offices that carry these highly-offensive names):

  • “Providence, RI (providence assumes a God that cares about us)
  • Salem, OR (this is from the Hebrew term for peace w/ God)
  • Corpus Christi, TX (Latin for 'the body of Christ")
  • Bethlehem, PA (birthplace of Christ)
  • Philadelphia, PA (mentioned in Revelations as a city w/ a godly church)
  • St. Paul, St. Louis, St. Augustine, St. Petersburg (godly Christian men)”

For the Spanish-speaking atheists:

  • “Santa Fe, NM (holy faith)
  • Los Angeles, CA (the Angels)
  • Sacramento, CA (the holy sacrament)
  • San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara, San Antonio (godly Christian men/women)"

Thank you Chris. We are compiling a list of hundreds more suggestions just like this from the comments left on the Washington Post and my Facebook page, and I will include them in a post later this week. Be sure to leave your addition to “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Protecting American Atheists” on the Jordan Sekulow Show Facebook page.

National Motto Faux Pas

By Jordan Sekulow1469804497277

In her acceptance speech tonight, Hillary Clinton stated: Our country's motto is e pluribus unum: out of many, we are one. Will we stay true to that motto? Sound familiar? In 2010, President Obama similarly said , “In the United States, our motto is E pluribus unum — out of many, one.” One problem.
