Strengthening the wall

This Constitution Day on Sept. 17 marked the 232nd anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. FFRF, on behalf of its new chapter in Albuquerque, N.M., sponsored an ad in the Albuquerque Journal to stress the secularism of the U.S. founders. “When I saw an ad [by Hobby Lobby] in the paper July 4 that said ‘In God We Trust,’ I was surprised at the quotes suggesting that our nation’s founders were all very religious and that we need a ‘national god,’ ” said Ron Herman of the new chapter. “I immediately questioned those quotes and went looking for others. Our local FFRF group decided that we should present an opposing ad on Constitution Day to help clarify that our founders insisted on the separation of church and state in that document.” FFRF members are encouraged to place similar ads.
