Family values are disintegrating in America. Its sickening for the citizenry to go from "In God we Trust" to In God We Lust. Good decent people built America into the Gretest Nation on Earth. Now the influx of less desirable elements coupled with a drug culture is tearing the country apart. Queers, lesbians and the nutty bastards that cut their own cocks off are a disgusting scourge. I hope the damn nuts fall in a big nasty hole together!
Actually, the United States of America did not have "In God We Trust" as its motto until 1956, when it was adopted by a joint resolution of the 84th Congress in direct violation of the 1st Amendment (ratified December 15th, 1791), which states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Founding Fathers themselves built a secular country, not one in which religiously-motivated mob rule would carry the day. Our original motto, "E Pluribus Unum", meaning 'Out of Many, One', was adopted into the Seal of the United States by an act of Congress in 1782.
Because religion, and Christianity in particular has been extremely popular however, blatantly unconstitutional laws derived from primarily religious values, which are inconsistently held, the unconstitutionality of such things has gone unquestioned. Those days are rapidly disappearing behind us however, and that's for the better.
You, I am sure, will disagree. But before you do, I want to point out that permitting unconstitutional laws on the basis that they are popular is a double-edged sword. If Christianity ever became sufficiently unpopular (which is occurring as we speak), it too could be persecuted unconstitutionally. In conclusion, religiously-motivated laws makes us no better than the most barbaric countries of the Middle East, and exposes us to limitations of our freedoms based on mob rule.
It's not just bad for gay people. It's bad for Christians in the long haul, too.
