Once again an atheist is making a challenge in the Constitutional Court over the use of the word "God" in the national anthem. He hopes to draw attention to the line between church and state.
No, this is not in the good ole USA. It is in Russia. The atheist isAlexander Nikonov, leader of the Moscow Atheistic Society. His complaint is about the the second verse of the Russian national anthem. It is called "The land of my birth protected by God". That title makes it harder to remove all references to God.
President Putin brought back the Russian national anthem five years ago. Putin revised the text and added the word God.
Here at home, Dr. Newdow continues his crusade to remove God from society, this time asking the court to order the removal of "In God We Trust" from our currency. Sometimes you feel squeezed as a believer in God. The Muslims want to wipe you from the face of the earth. The atheists want to remove God from the face of the earth.
