City Cuts God from "God Bless America"

SPARKS, NV-October 1, 2003 Just exactly who is blessing America around here, anyway?

Patriotic signs showing an American flag and the words "God Bless America" have been displayed at City Hall since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

But City Attorney Chet Adams, concerned that reference to God could be construed as an endorsement of religion and attract lawsuits, ordered that the signs be altered.

Using scissors, a municipal employee edited the Almighty out of the signs, which now read, "Bless America."

"Who is blessing America? Well, I don't know who is blessing America, but I think a court would say the word 'bless' is OK," said Adams.

"I hope I didn't exacerbate the situation," he said. "Maybe it should just say 'America' on there."

Adams said recent controversies including the removal of a monument bearing the 10 Commandments from a courthouse in Alabama make displaying the word "God" inside City Hall inadvisable.

"My experience is that people will sue for any reason under the sun because they feel it's their God-given right to do so," Adams said.

Some city workers were taken aback by Adams' decision even Jan Holman, the employee who did the snipping.

"I just think it's such a sad state of affairs that we can't express ourselves fully because it might offend someone," Holman said.

From the above article:
"My experience is that people will sue for any reason under the sun because they feel it's their God-given right to do so," Adams said.

Now, if it's their God-given right to sue, then that presumes that God exists and should be asked to Bless America. If however, God doesn't exist, then logically they can't have a God-given right to sue so they can't sue to have it taken out. tongue
