In today's news of the GOP being all about Jobs, Jobs, Jobs™ ...

Jeezus, by The Pain Comics

... the AP reports:

The House Judiciary Committee has approved a resolution reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the national motto and calling for its display in public schools and other government buildings.

It is now "Ordered to be Reported by Voice Vote," although it is not clear when it will be taken up by the full House of Representatives.

Congressman J. Randy Forbes (R-VA) is the sponsor of this word salad. He wrote an op-ed about it, published this past Saturday. The Secular Coalition of America has a response.

I used to think it was kind of ridiculous to protest having this phrase on our money. Eh, let the God-botherers have their little thing, I thought. But they never stop, do they?
