Anti-theist Liberals Plead with Trump to Exclude Bible from Inauguration

There are some who hate any mention of God. They believe that they have the right to be insulated from any reference to the Creator. They especially wish to be insulated from a government figure or official from making reference to Jesus or Jehovah.

The reason for this is simple, they do not want to be reminded that He exists. They want to be free from the thought that they may be in wrong standing with Him. They also do not want the faith to spread and believe that “government endorsement” of religion will do just that.

So, we should not be surprised that the Freedom From Religion Foundation has made a request to President-Elect Donald Trump.

A prominent professing atheist organization is asking President-elect Donald Trump to keep God out of this month’s inaugural ceremony by removing the Bible, prayer and the “so help me God” phrase of the oath from the event.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) recently sent a letter to Trump to urge him to change his plans for the inauguration. It asserted that the Constitution is secular in nature and “contains no directive to swear to a deity or to place a hand on a Bible.”

“The ‘so help me God’ tradition violates the spirit of our secular Constitution in the very act of promising to uphold it. The Constitution prohibits rather than mandates religious oaths,” the group asserted.

The problem that they fail to recognize is that there is no such thing as neutrality. You have to take one side or the other. To include prayer and the Bible is to exclude atheists. The FFRF believes that is a travesty, but what about the Christians?

To exclude prayer and the Bible is to exclude Christians. To fail to mention the hand of God in providing and raising up Trump to this position is to insult God and a majority of Americans. This leaves us with only one choice, and ironically it is the choice that the Founding Fathers gave us.

We leave it up to the individual to express or not express what they believe. Because though the Constitution forbids the establishment of a denomination or religious sect as the state church, it never forbids its servants from having or expressing their personal faith.

After all, the Bill of Rights is a protection of the individual’s rights. And like him or hate him, Trump is an individual first and President of the United States second.
