Using the First Amendment to nullify God — Air Force edition

There are no more aggressive religious proselytizers than atheists.  They sell their religion with ferocity and would willingly burn at the stake anyone who stands in their way.

Last I looked, the First Amendment prevented the government from creating a religion from above or interfering with someone’s religion.  It didn’t nullify God.

Apparently someone forgot to explain those simple constitutional facts to the suits running the Air Force:

The patch logo was changed after a military atheist group, the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, protested the reference to God on the patch. The patch has a saying on it in Latin, which is common for military patches, that tranlates [sic] to: “Doing God’s Work with Other People’s Money.”

The saying was then changed last month to say: “Doing Miracles with Other People’s Money.”

    I’m an Atheist; I like the original and object to the replacement motto. Man does not do miracles and thinking so places man in the role of a god which in itself is antithetical to Atheism – there is no god, not even man. At least with the original the miracles are attributed to the unknown and inexplicable.

    The whole point of wiping out any mention of God isn’t about these piddly rules & technicalities always cited as the reason.  It’s intended to allow the atheists & other non-believers a little peace of mind as they try to claim there is no God & then attempt to make it so by making sure no one ever hears the name or reference to Him.  It is no different then when they use the Muslims as a means to suppress the truth.  (Oh we don’t have a problem w/ the Christians doing X, but we can’t allow it because it will offend the Muslims.)  It is all just cover for them to not have to expose their true motives.  Laugh if you want, but God does know you atheists’ true motives.  You might be able to dissect the laws and out-smart mere men, but you are not out-smarting Him at all.

      Atheists are always gambling that there is no God. I’d rather gamble that there is a God. I’m neither atheist nor theist. I’m someone who thinks that morality is the better part of discretion, and someone who knows that I don’t have all the answers. In America, atheists have adopted all the arrogance that once characterized the Spanish Inquisition in its prime.
