WTF?  Do these ultra-religious folks think "In God We Trust?" was put on money by God himself?   Its just a farkin slogan, and the USPS decided to play off of it, sheesh.

There's no mention of that sort of thing in the article. In fact, it doesn't seem anyone is offended, or these reporters couldn't find anyone who was.
 
2013-08-01 11:27:57 PM  
This slogan is stupid. It removed God from the wording and replaces it with "Priority"?? WTF is "Priority"? They are trying to deify an aspect of God instead of God Himself. It's farking sacrilege.

Come on, America. Where have your priorities and loyalties gone? Either this is a country which puts its trust in God, or it's just another banana republic paying lip service while cloaking its evil deeds in false righteousness by taking the Lord's name in vain.

We are not a nation that puts its faith in God. As people you can make that decision, but as a nation we have (supposedly have) a seperation of curch and state.

God needs to come off of money and everything else governmental for once and for all.

As a citizen, it's their right to believe whatever they want.  It's also their right to vote for people that believe in what they believe in.

I suggest you brush up on your knowledge of the history of America because it most certainly was conceived as blessed by God.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to...assume among the powers of the earth...which the Laws of  God entitle them...

...all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator...


Yes, there is a separation of Church and State. There is no need or want for the establishment of a state religion, much less Catholicism or its watered down heretical Anglican branch. Laws must rule this country, not Popes or Archbishops. But those Laws are inspired and handed down by God.

Or, that is to say, they were. These days it has become obvious to anyone watching that God has been completely erased in all but the most vacuous paeans spouted by politicians to give off the appearance of virtue when all they ever do is evil.  And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

This removal of God from one more domain isn't surprising. It's just saddening.

The tracking system the USPS uses is so worthless they might as well not even offer it. Then we hear how all the mail is analyzed and logged as to who is sending what and to whom. So the capability is there but only the feds can access it.
 
2013-08-01 11:50:03 PM  
Of course the quotes have no real context, but the article's tone makes it sound like the objections were from a budgetary standpoint.


"Perhaps they should have test-marketed their slogan," customer Tabitha Hochscheid said.

They just did. Apparently the audience wasn't receptive.


Critics said the ad campaign was a waste of money by an agency that already runs huge deficits.

You know nothing about the USPS's budget, John Snow.

Everything has to start somewhere.

The inclusion of mans concept of God (all names for him, not just the Christian version) has ruined more things in human history that everything short of the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs.

And this. The USPS hasn't taken a dime in taxpayer money in decades. They'd be fine if not for a mandate to fund the pensions of workers who haven't even been born yet.
