main stream answers,
This review is from: Fighting Words: A Toolkit for Combating the Religious Right (Paperback)
Finally a book which sites examples of the religious beliefs or lack of religious beliefs of our founding fathers. Ms. Morgan gives numerous quotations from our first presidents citing their concerns about the power of religion in society and their determination to totally seperate religion and the state.
She mentions the phrase "in God we trust" coming into government use during the McCarty era of the fifties. It
was used to distingush the US from the Soviet Union at that time.
