    "In God We Trust" Poll

    NBC is having a poll, Cyclones are good at hitting the ballot box. I'm thinking this doesn't count as "political"...but about the history and traditions of our country.

    Go Cyclones!

    Yes. It's a violation of the principle of separation of church and state.

    This involves both politics and religion. As soon as someone starts arguing the other side I suspect it will be moved.

    They were probably a silent minority. Speaking out against anything religious, even in this group of revolutionaries, was probably not politically or personally beneficial.

    I think it's funny that you don't think this is political. Do you know what "political" means?

    I will agree... I'm suprised this hasn't made its way to the cave yet

    While it could be an interesting topic merting discussion outside of the staunch far left/far right views of the Cave, there is a reason politics got moved off the main board in the first place...

    If the "separation of church and state" was mentioned in the constitution you might be on to something.
